The Montreal Canadiens' Alexander Radulov was notably absent from the team's practice earlier today due to illness, and now it appears that illness will be significant enough to cost him at least one game.

Head coach Michel Therrien announced on Tuesday that Radulov would not be in uniform for the Habs when they face off against the Florida Panthers at the Centre Bell in Montreal this evening.

Radulov has played significant minutes in 16 games for the Habs this season, recording a very impressive 3 goals and 11 assists and a plus minus rating of 7 on the season. His absence from the line up is sure to have a major impact on Habs this evening.
