Brown left Thursday night's game against Detroit early with an upper-body injury, Hockey Inside Out reports.

Brown took part in Friday's optional practice, but his status for Saturday's game against the Rangers has not been confirmed. The 30-year-old, who was the first star in Tuesday's win over the Ducks, brings some value in tough play. Since joining the Habs 11 games ago, Brown has 23 minutes in penalties.
