Weber (lower-body) skated on Friday; not 100% certain he will play on Saturday.

The Canadiens have acquired Shea Weber from the Predators for P.K Subban.
Weber, 30, spent the first 10 years of his NHL career in Nashville after being picked 49th overall in 2003. He is a mammoth at 6-foot-4, 230 lbs. who excels at both ends of the rink.
