Canadiens' Daniel Briere skating again, no longer has concussion symptoms

BROSSARD, Que. - Montreal Canadiens forward Daniel Briere no longer has concussion symptoms and has resumed skating.

Coach Michel Therrien says Briere skated Monday at the team's practice facility along with forward Brandon Prust, who has been out with a shoulder injury.

Briere sustained a concussion Oct. 19 after a hit by Nashville's Eric Nystrom and has not played since.

Briere had a goal and two assists in eight games before the injury. Prust, who also hasn't played since Oct. 19, has two goals and one assist.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
