Video: Patrick Kaleta Hit Injures Danny Briere

Patrick Kaleta of the Buffalo Sabres puts a nasty hit on Danny Briere.

We’re no strangers to Patrick Kaleta’s penchant for getting nasty both within and outside the rules, and tonight he took aim at another Flyer. In the first period of the Flyers’ 7-2 victory over the Sabres [highlights], Kaleta lined up Danny Briere and took him hard into the boards, his head hitting the stanchion. Briere responded by slashing Kaleta, and after taking his two minutes in the box, skated off the ice and did not return.

Video below.


Another chapter in a nasty history between these two

Briere’s already missed time with a concussion this season, so hopefully it’s not that. Or anything that will keep him out even longer.
