MONTREAL -- Montreal Canadiens forward George Parros has a concussion and will be evaluated on a daily basis, coach Michel Therrien announced Sunday following a 2-1 loss at home to the Florida Panthers.

Parros left the Canadiens' 1-0 overtime win on the road against the New York Islanders on Saturday after a fight with Eric Boulton at 2:01 of the first period.

This is the second concussion of the season for Parros, who had not been diagnosed with a concussion over the first eight seasons of his career.

Parros missed 12 games with a concussion sustained on opening night against the Toronto Maple Leafs when his head hit the ice during a fight with Colton Orr.

Quote of the Day

[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
