Shea Weber was participating as he deals with a lower-body injury that has kept him out of the last few games.

We'll wait for confirmation from Claude Julien, but looks like Weber is still out...Probably won't play tonight based on line rushes.— Eric Engels (@EricEngels) November 25, 2017
UPDATE: Weber is confirmed to not be in the lineup tonight.

Shea Weber will not be in the lineup against the Sabres. #GoHabsGo
Brendan Gallagher, who had apparently been dealing with an undisclosed issue was also on the ice, and will be in the lineup for tonight’s game.
The biggest news is that for the first time in a while, Carey Price was working out with the purpose of preparing for a game the same day. It was confirmed yeseterday that he would be getting the start versus the Sabres, and it seems he’s all ready to go.
#Habs Weber is taking part in optional skate. Gallagher is practising too. Price, as expected, is in the starter’s net.— John Lu (@JohnLuTSNMtl) November 25, 2017
Karl Alzner and Jeff Petry remai together as the top pair, while Victor Mete draws back in, alongside Jakub Jerabek, who will play his second NHL should the lineup stay the same.
