Paul Holmgren announced this afternoon that Danny Briere will be out indefinitely with an upper back contusion. Presumably it is a result of the nasty hit Briere took from Pittsburgh’s Joe Vitale during garbage time of the Flyers big win over the Penguins on Sunday that set off Peter Laviolette and led to the line brawl and Hogan taunt. Vitale is also the guy responsible for knocking defenseman Nick Grossmann out of the game. He’ll miss a reported 7-10 days or just in time for the playoffs to start.
You have to think the Flyers will have this on their minds when they play this coming weekend and in the playoffs. This is going to get ugly.
