MONTREAL - After being barren for most of season, the Canadiens' clinic is suddenly a busy place.
Patrice Brisebois is the latest addition to the team’s sick bay, with the veteran defenseman sidelined with a right shoulder injury. Listed as day-to-day, Brisebois has a goal and six assists on the season.
In other injury news, Steve Begin is expected to be on the shelf for two to three weeks with a separated left shoulder, while Bryan Smolinski could be out of action for up to six weeks with a sprained right knee.
Sidelined since Dec. 1, Cristobal Huet is moving towards his return. Huet is making the trip to Philadephia with his teammates and is crossing his fingers that he will be back in front of the Canadiens' net in time for Saturday’s showdown against the Maple Leafs at the Bell Centre.
