Montreal Canadiens’ Andrei Kostitsyn to miss Monday’s game after suffering concussion

Montreal Canadiens’ winger Andrei Kostitsyn will miss Monday’s game against the Florida Panthers after suffering a concussion when he was hit into the boards by Phoenix’s Kurt Sauer Saturday night.

“I would have trouble seeing him in the lineup (Monday night),” head coach Guy Carbonneau said. “We have five days off after this and we don’t want to risk his health after an impact like that.”
