Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Chuck Gormley of Flyer Files,
Following Monday’s practice he denied taking a swing at Prust, saying if anyone should face disciplinary action it should be the Rangers forward.
“There’s no doubt that was a blindside hit,” Briere said. “Kimmo never saw him coming. Other than him wanting to injure Kimmo, there’s no need for him to hit him. The puck is gone and you can’t change anything on the play other than to hurt Kimmo. Obviously, the only thing going through his mind is, ‘I can hurt him because he doesn’t see me coming.’”
Briere said that with time running out, there was little the Flyers could do to Prust.
“There were a few guys yelling at him, but what are we gonna do?” Briere said. “We can’t jump on the ice because then it’s an I don’t know how many games suspension.”
