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

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
