It turns out that Daniel Brieres stay in the press box was a short one. The Montreal Canadiens announced on Friday that the veteran forward will return to the teams line-up on Saturday night when the Habs visit the Nashville Predators. In 26 games this season, the 36-year-old Briere has five goals and five assists. The Predators will also see a familiar face in the line-up on Saturday night. The Habs said that former Predator Francis Bouillon will also be making his return for Montreal. The 38-year-old defenceman, who is in his second stint with the Canadiens, played for three years in Nashville and is making his first trip back to the Music City since leaving the team at the end of the 2012 season. In 26 games this year, Bouillon has a pair of assists. Carey Price gets the call in net for the Canadiens.

VANCOUVER -- The Vancouver Canucks finally found the offence they were looking for, and it came from three unlikely sources. Defenceman Alex Edler scored his first two goals of the season and added an assist, Max Lapierre and Chris Higgins also scored a pair of goals and Canucks cooled the red-hot Washington Capitals 7-4 before an appreciative sellout crowd of 18,890. The only offensive star to score for the Canucks was Henrik Sedin, who had the winning goal at 6:18 of the third period. "We talked about playing more aggressive and keeping our team together all over the ice," Edler said. "Its nice to score seven goals in a game." The Canucks, notorious for starting the season slowly, improved to 5-5-1 as they ended a two-game losing skid. It was only Vancouvers third win at home in six games at Rogers Arena. "Its so important to get scoring by committee," said Canucks coach Alain Vigneault. "Thats how you win on a consistent basis. For our team tonight to have both (Lapierres) line and (Manny Malhotras) line come up and score key goals at key times, it was really important, and were going to hope that that continues moving forward here." The Capitals (7-2-0) suffered their second straight loss after opening the season with seven consecutive wins for the first time in franchise history. Alex Ovechkin led Washington with two goals while Mike Knuble, on a penalty shot, and Marcus Johansson also scored for the Capitals, who trailed 3-1 after the first period but created a 4-4 tie after 40 minutes. "We had a bad first so the coach comes in and yells," said Washington coach Bruce Boudreau. "Our team comes out and has a better second. They come back out, and we knew what was going to happen in the third as far as effort, and they got the first one, so it generates more energy in the building. We sort of sagged for five minutes and the games over." The offence on display was fitting for a game featuring three of the NHLs past four scoring champions -- Ovechkin, Henrik Sedin and Daniel Sedin. The Canucks outshot the Capitals 43-32 as the clubs combined for 75 shots. Vancouver converted two of five power-play chances while the visitors were good on one of four. "It was pretty open for a while," said Vancouver goaltender Roberto Luongo, who recorded 28 saves in the final game of a difficult October. "Those guys can generate some offence, like we can, and I think we shut it down pretty well in the third." Vancouver ooutshot the Capitals 17-10 in the first, prompting Washington coach Bruce Boudreau to replace starting goaltender Tomas Vokoun with Michal Neuvirth at the start of the second period.dddddddddddd "I didnt think Tomas was very sharp," Boudreau said. "Hes played eight games in a row at a very high level. The first and third goals werent very good. I thought this was as good a time as any -- since Neuvy was sharp in practice -- to get him in the game again." Ovechkin reduced Washingtons deficit to 3-2 just 1:25 into the second on a one-timer off a Nicklas Backstrom pass during a power play. Then Knuble scored on a penalty shot at 5:07 of the second after Luongo blocked the shot with his arm but then fell back into the net, knocking the puck in. The penalty shot was awarded after Edler tripped Knuble on a breakaway. "I thought I could catch him, but I guess I got a little bit behind," said Edler. Edler quickly atoned for his miscue as his second goal of the game put the Canucks ahead 4-3 at the eight-minute mark of the second period. He cruised into the high slot and blasted in Henrik Sedins pass. "I think Eddie played a real strong game," Vigneault said. "Hes been getting a lot of opportunities since the start of the season, especially on the power play. He was little bit off, in some instances, on his execution -- but tonight he was bang on." Henrik Sedin gave the Canucks an 5-4 lead just over six minutes into the third as he flipped in a rebound after Neuvirth made two saves but could not freeze the puck. The goal came three seconds after an interference penalty to Ovechkin on Edler expired. "My penalty was at the wrong time in the wrong spot," said Ovechkin. "I tried to go to it and...they used that. Next time we know how to play them." Notes: The Canucks will start a six-game road trip in Calgary on Tuesday. The Capitals head home to face Anaheim the same night. ...
