Mike Brown is being seen as a "big brother" to the younger players on the Canadiens roster, according to Michel Therrien.

Brown was claimed off waivers from San Jose at the end of February and he's brought some physicality to the lineup. "He’s kind of a big brother to those young players," said Therrien. "He’s a physical presence. He brings a lot of energy. We wanted to make sure we’re a tough team to play against and he certainly showed that yesterday. He played 10 minutes and he had nine hits, so he came to work and he did a good job."
