Montreal Canadiens forward Daniel Briere will return to the lineup Tuesday for the Canadiens' game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Briere has been out since sustaining a concussion during a game Oct. 19 against the Nashville Predators when he collided with Predators forward Eric Nystrom.

Signed as a free agent by the Canadiens after his contract was bought out by the Philadelphia Flyers, Briere has one goal and two assists in eight games
