Description: Avalanche winger Daniel Briere scored his 300th goal with less than a second remaining to lift Colorado, 2-1, over Boston on Monday.
Insight: Briere scored with 0.5 seconds left in the third period. It was nice to finally see Colorado score some goals as Minnesota shut them out twice to start the season. Jamie McGinn had the other Avalanche goal. Briere was plus-one with four shots on goal.
 
10/2/2014 4:41:00 PM
Description: Avalanche winger Daniel Briere is not expected to make much of an impact in his new home.
Insight: He was almost non-existent during his only season in Montreal (25 points in 69 games), but is hoping a change of scenery will do the trick. Briere is 36-years-old, but hockey is a sport where players can produce well into their thirties. Do not expect much, but if he can get it going on the power play early in the season, Briere could push for 50 points in 2014-15.
 
5/12/2014 7:16:00 PM
Description: Canadiens center Daniel Briere is expected to play Monday in Game 6 against the Bruins.
Insight: He was a healthy scratch for Saturday's Game 5 in Boston. Briere has four points (one goal, three assists) in eight appearances this postseason.
 
1/4/2014 10:04:00 PM
Description: Habs center Danny Briere had a hand in all three of his team's goals Saturday in a loss to Ottawa.
Insight: Briere scored Montreal's first two goals before assisting on the final one. He's had a quiet season so far with just seven goals and six assists in 30 appearances. Maybe Saturday's strong performance will get him going again.

Description: Montreal center Danny Briere will be a healthy scratch Thursday at St. Louis. SOURCE: Canadiens on Twitter
Insight: He had been demoted to the fourth line and now he's not even good enough to crack that. Briere, who played just four and a half minutes on Tuesday, hasn't produced a point since December 4th. His last goal was against the Capitals on November 29th.
 
11/12/2013 1:53:00 PM
Description: Canadiens center Danny Briere (concussion) has been activated from injured reserve for Tuesday's game against Tampa Bay.
Insight: The veteran forward has one goal and three points in eight games. He was practicing on a line with Michael Bournival and Rene Bourque
 
11/7/2013 11:32:00 AM
Description: Canadiens center Danny Briere is back on the ice skating, but we still have no timetable for his return.
Insight: It's his first concussion as a member of Montreal, but he has a history in this area which makes determining a timetable for his return very difficult. The veteran forward has one goal and three points in eight games.
 
10/22/2013 1:50:00 PM
Description: Canadiens center Danny Briere suffered his second concussion during this calendar year after colliding with Eric Nystrom of the Predators Saturday night and is expected to miss Tuesday's game against Edmonton.
Insight: It's his first concussion as a member of Montreal, but he has a history in this area which makes determining a timetable for his return very difficult. The veteran forward has one goal and three points in eight games.
 
10/20/2013 10:34:00 AM
Description: Canadiens center Danny Briere suffered his second concussion during this calendar year after colliding with Eric Nystrom of the Predators Saturday night.
Insight: It's his first concussion as a member of Montreal. The veteran forward has one goal and three points while skating just 13:47 per game this season.
 
7/4/2013 6:07:00 PM
Description: According to Pierre LeBrun, Danny Briere has agreed to a two-year, $8 million contract with the Montreal Canadiens.
Insight: Briere becomes another veteran presence on a team that has a good mix of young and old, but his numbers have been in decline for several seasons and moving to the Habs won't reverse that.
 
6/20/2013 9:05:00 PM
Description: The Flyers have confirmed they will be using one of their two compliance buyouts on Danny Briere, who has been with the Flyers since 2007-08.
Insight: The 35-year-old's numbers have been in decline for the last two seasons. He had just six goals and 16 points in 34 games this past season.

Description: The Flyers are preparing to buy out the rest of Danny Briere's contract. SOURCE: Philadelphia Inquirer
Insight: Briere's production has declined in each of the last two seasons and at age 35, it's tough to envision him rebounding in 2013-14. The Flyers could also look to trade Briere, though he has a no-movement clause in his contract and would have to approve any trade.
 
4/13/2013 11:15:00 AM
Description: Flyers center Danny Briere (concussion) is expected to return to action Saturday. The 35-year-old has missed 10 straight games.
Insight: Briere has been in decline for the past two years as his points total has fallen from 68 in 2010 to 13 this season with an ugly -13 rating. This could be his final few games as a member of the Flyers.
 
4/12/2013 11:06:00 PM
Description: Flyers center Danny Briere (concussion) says he will return to action Saturday. The 35-year-old has missed 10 straight games.

4/11/2013 4:51:00 PM
Description: Flyers center Danny Briere (concussion) will miss his 10th straight game Thursday against Ottawa but he may return Saturday against Buffalo, according to philly.com.
Insight: Flyers GM Paul Holmgren was hoping to have him back Thursday. The 35-year-old has been in decline for the past two years and is a buyout candidate this summer.
 
3/30/2013 9:45:00 AM
Description: Flyers center Danny Briere, sidelined by a concussion, has not been given a timetable for return.
Insight: It looks like he'll be out for the forseeable future, given the nature of concussions these days and the procedures needed to return. Much was expected from the 35-year-old and he failed in most categories with 13 points and a -13 rating. Let's call this a "lost season" and hope he returns top form next year.
 
3/25/2013 8:13:00 PM
Description: The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Flyers center Danny Briere has been diagnosed with a concussion.
Insight: It looks like he'll be out for the forseeable future. The 35-year-old hasn't scored in over a month and carries a team-worst -13 rating for the season.
 
3/24/2013 2:47:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia center Danny Briere left Sunday's practice with an upper-body injury and is day-to-day.
Insight: He'll miss Sunday's game against the Penguins. Briere has five goals, 13 points and a -13 in 26 games and has clearly lost a step.

Description: Philadelphia center Danny Briere netted a pair of goals Monday in a blowout win over the Islanders.
Insight: Briere also distributed his third assist of the season. Briere produced just two goals in his first 11 games of 2013 but he's now scored three times in his last two contests.
 
2/9/2013 4:57:00 PM
Description: Flyers forward Danny Briere scored the game-winning goal in overtime Saturday versus Carolina.
Insight: Briere has two goals and four points in eight games since making his season debut, but he has taken 30 SOG, including five Saturday. Fantasy owners should hold him.
