Briere_2013 [1]The Montreal Canadiens will have a new look up front on Tuesday against Winnipeg as Daniel Briere will skate on the fourth line alongside Travis Moen and Michael Bournival.

According to Briere, he knows what message is being sent.

“Michel [Therrien, head coach] has said it from the start that this is the way it’s going to go,” Briere told the Montreal Gazette. “There are some guys who have stepped up early and they deserve the ice time. In my case, I’ve always been something of a slow starter.

Briere, 36, has just one assist through five games while averaging nearly 16 minutes per night.
