BROSSARD - The Montreal Canadiens may be without forward Andrei Kostitsyn for tonight's game against the Edmonton Oilers.

For the second straight day, Kostitsyn left practice early and Jacques Martin said afterwards he will be a game-time decision, with a lower body injury.

Scott Gomez practiced with the team, but has not been cleared for contact.

Carey Price will sport a new mask tonight for Remembrance Day that features army camouflage in red and blue. He will auction the mask off to raise funds for the Wounded Warriors and Canadian Veterans.

If Kostitsyn does not play tonight, look for Yannick Weber to move up into his spot on the third line and Alexei Emelin to come in and pair up with Jaroslav Spacek.
