Did Briere Get Suspended Because He Is A Flyer?

from Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly,

A day later, Briere gets suspended two games for driving Hannan into the back boards. Yeah, like Briere drives people with the kind of authority of Chris Pronger.

Briere’s hit was nowhere near as vicious as Jarret Stoll driving Dan Carcillo in the back of the neck, sending him into the boards with whiplash effect in Los Angeles last week.

Did we mention no penalty on that play, either? Of course, Carcillo wears a Flyers jersey. That says it all.

So, now we have Washington’s Alex Ovechkin finally getting tossed from a game for a dangerous hit to Buffalo’s Patrick Kaleta, who isn’t much of a saint, himself.

A world-class player Ovie may be, the Capitals’ winger often leaves his feet to bury people and gets away with it. Why? Because he’s Ovie. He didn’t leave his feet this time, but he leaned hard coming across ice to nail Kaleta on the boarding call.

read on and more hockey talk, many which have been brought up on KK in the last week…
