Wisniewski said he got injured midway through the third period when Flyers forward Daniel Briere checked him while he was on the ice as the two went after a loose puck in the defensive zone.
Days later, the hit still leaves the defender miffed at Briere.
“He decided to finish his check while I’m lying on the ice,” Wisniewski said. “Well, my arms were laying straight out. Actually, he even went a little bit lower to get a little more piece of me, which to me is kind of a dirty hit.
“I mean, there’s no need to do that when a guy is in a vulnerable spot to go ahead and finish your check. But that happened. Stuff happens. My shoulder just kind of got crunched against the boards and that was it.”
