Philadelphia Flyers defender Nicklas Grossmann is expected to return when the team begins the 2012 NHL playoffs against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night, and center Danny Briere could very well join him.
Though Briere said he had been told not to discuss his injury status, he admitted to reporters on Monday that he has no limitations anymore and feels much better now than he did a week ago.
"To be honest, I'm not allowed to speak on any injuries or the roster or if I'm going to play or not," Briere said with a smile on Monday.
"All I can tell you is - and you saw it - I'm practicing and working to get ready. That's all I'm allowed to say at this point."
Briere missed the final three regular season games after being hit by Joe Vitale of the Penguins and suffering back spasms.
