Brown (upper body) had two hits, two blocked shots and two shots on goal in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Rangers. He had left the Habs' previous game due to the injury.

Montreal was officially eliminated from the playoffs with the loss, so we'll see if that reality has any impact on how head coach Michel Therrien chooses to use his vetarans vis-a-vis the young forwards on the roster. Brown has been in the active lineup most nights and gives an honest effort, which carries some weight with the coach. If he continues to get ice time and fantasy owners can use Brown's style -- the nine-year veteran has 23 PIM and 51 hits in 12 games with Montreal -- you'll get someone who doesn't hold back and is motivated to play for his next contract.
