Sergei Kostitsyn called up.
Tonight for their match versus the Philadelphia Flyers, the Montreal Canadiens have called up Sergei Kostitsyn from their AHL farm team, the Hamilton Bulldogs.
Kostitsyn is third among AHL rookies with 22 points this season. He joins his brother Andrei who is already a regular in the Habs lineup this season. The last time two brothers played together with the Montreal Canadiens was back during the 1990-1991 season when the Lebeau brothers (Stephan and Patrick) teamed up.
Andrei Kostitsyn was forming a line with Saku Koivu and Chris Higgins during yesterday practice. Will this addition to the Habs lineup shake things up for the better? We will have an answer tonight.
