Brandon Prust and Lars Eller both attended practice on Monday as the Montreal Canadiens tuned up for Wednesday's playoff opener against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

It was Prust's first full practice since being shut down around March 19 due to a suspected rib injury. Prust took part in penalty-kill drills alongside Michael Bournival, and later with Brian Gionta. Canadiens' public relations told media that Prust is currently not in game shape and is not guaranteed to play in the opener against the Lightning.

Eller sat out the last three games of the regular season with a flu bug and practiced with the team for the first time since his illness.
