Montreal Canadiens winger Travis Moen continues to make progress towards returning to the lineup.

Moen was cleared for contact on Monday and took part in his first full practice since sustaining a concussion last month.

"I'm two to three practices away from playing," he said following Monday's skate.

Moen was hurt in a fight with Bruins defenceman Kevan Miller in Boston on Mar. 24.

Also, defencemen Andrei Markov and Alexei Emelin took advantage of therapy days on Monday and were not on the ice. All other players were present except Alex Galchenyuk, who's sidelined for the first round with a lower-body injury sustained on Apr. 9 against the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Canadiens are up 3-0 in their first round playoff series with the Tampa Bay Lightning and can advance with a win on Tuesday night at the Bell Centre.
