Flyers Lose Briere Again

via Sam Carchidi of Broad Street Bull,

...in the Flyers’ ugly 5-1 loss to impressive Calgary, Briere left the game late in the second period and did not return. He suffered another groin injury and he will be sidelined for the fourth time this season.

  And, based on general manager Paul Holmgren’s body language and somber responses after the game, it wouldn’t be surprising if Briere was shut down for the rest of the regular season _ and perhaps the playoffs.

  Holmgren said Briere will be evaluated Friday.

added 12:07pm, from the CP via TSN,

Danny Briere’s groin injury is not as bad as first feared, and the Philadelphia Flyers centre hopes to play next week.

Briere was examined Friday morning, and his surgeon told him the adhesions broke from his last groin surgery and there was some internal bleeding. Briere said his surgeon told him that was common and Briere could possibly play Tuesday against Buffalo.

Briere had a light workout Friday and hoped to skate on Saturday. He did not expect to play in Saturday’s game against Nashville.
