SUNRISE, Fla - He didn't think he would play. He said he had some pain and wasn't feeling right and couldn't take faceoffs.

Nonetheless, Danny Briere will be in the lineup tonight against the Florida Panthers as he makes his season debut after missing the first four games of the season, recovering from a hairline fracture in his left wrist.

He won't be taking draws, because he'll start on Sean Couturier's line with Jakub Voracek.

Also, Kimmo Timonen said he wanted to see a right-hander paired with a left-hander on all three defensive pairs and he got his wish.

Looks like Nick Grossmann goes with Kurtis Foster, Braydon Coburn with Bruno Gervais, Timonen with Luke Schenn.
