The Canadiens held an optional skate Thursday morning in Ottawa with 16 players taking part before facing the Senators (7 p.m., CBC, RDS, TSN Radio 690).
Daniel Brière took part in his first practice with the Canadiens since suffering a concussion on Oct. 19, but no timetable has been set for his return to the lineup.
“I don’t have a precise date yet,” Brière told reporters in Ottawa. “I’ve followed protocol and things have been getting better. I can do a little more every day.”
Travis Moen, who has been sidelined since suffering a broken orbital bone on Oct. 26, will return to the lineup while wearing a visor and will play on the fourth line with Ryan White and George Parros.
Carey Price will start in goal for the Canadiens, while Robin Lehner will start in goal for the Senators.
