PHILADELPHIA - Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren revealed that forward Danny Briere will be in the lineup when Philadelphia hosts the New York Islanders on Tuesday.

"I feel ready. I feel like it's time," Briere said following the team's morning skate. "No symptoms the last few days, so we'll give it a go, and I know I'm excited."

Briere has missed the last six games with a concussion suffered in a January 21 game against the New Jersey Devils.

The 34-year-old has registered 13 goals and 17 assists in 43 games this season.
