PHILADELPHIA - Danny Briere had a goal and an assist in the first game of his minor-league conditioning stint to lead the Philadelphia Flyers' AHL affiliate to a 7-1 win on Wednesday night.

Briere saw his first action in more than a month because of a groin strain. He had surgery Oct. 25 to fix a torn abdominal muscle and he left a Dec. 2 game against Tampa Bay with a groin injury. He hasn't played for the Flyers since that game.

He will be back in the lineup for the Phantoms on Friday against Lowell, then should return to the Flyers.
