Sergei Kostitsyn may not have played his last game with the Canadiens after all.

The enigmatic Belarusian forward has joined his teammates in Philadelphia and was on the ice for the pre-game skate Sunday prior to the Habs series opener with the Philadelphia Flyers.

The younger Kostitsyn brother was asked to stay away from the team and left back in Montreal for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinal against the Penguins.  He was also publically called out by goaltender Carey Price for his lax attitude towards practice.

Canadiens' head coach Jacques Martin had a one-on-one chat with Kostitsyn on the ices near the end of the team's morning skate.  He is not expected to be in the lineup for Game 1 against the Flyers however.

The 23-year old Kostitsyn is scoreless in four playoff games this season.
