Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Danny Briere is expected to return to the Flyers lineup on Friday, when Philadelphia plays host to the Montreal Canadiens.

"I think we will know in the morning with what is going on," said Flyers head coach John Stevens. "As far as today, we are going to wait and see how he feels tomorrow. I don't think we will wait until game time. We will decide in the morning whether he is going to play or not."

The club waived center Glen Metropolit and defenseman Ossi Vaananen on Thursday to clear salary cap space for the pivot's impending return.

Briere had surgery on his groin/stomach area last month and has skated in just nine games this season because of injury, registering five goals and four assists.
