“I met with Danny last week and informed him of our decision to use a compliance buy out on his contract. This was a very difficult decision for us to make as Danny has been a very good player for us over the past six years. Danny came to our organization as a free agent in July of 2007 and has been a tremendous player, person and role model in all aspects and for that we thank him. We wish him continued success and best wishes in any future endeavors.”
-Flyers GM Paul Holmgren on Danny Briere. More at the Flyers website.
A pretty exciting game to watch on a Sunday afternoon.
The Flyers had a rough first period after a lengthy break, but picked it up after that.
The Devils need to be much more responsible in their defensive zone in order to compete with Philadelphia.
Here is the OT goal by Danny Briere…
added 6:33pm, Watch below the Briere disallowed goal in OT, I thought the correct call was made…
Our morning salute to the stars of a night ago, it’s JJ’s Three Cheers for Tuesday, November 2nd:
***Cheers to Vancouver’s Roberto Luongo, who shut out the reeling New Jersey Devils with 30 saves in the Canucks’ 3-0 win. Luongo bested Team Canada teammate Martin Brodeur, who was beaten on a penalty shot by Henrik Sedin, in fine fashion, to close the door on another loss for New Jersey. (People are realizing that the Devils are 3-9-2 and that Ilya Kovalchuk is averaging a goal every fourth game and a point every other, right? Uuuuuuuuuuugly!)

In the latest episode, Jon quickly puts to bed the nonsense stemming from last week’s show, the gang discusses the week that was for the Lightning, some leaguewide issues (including yet another suspension) and, as always, close things out with the specialty segments, “Mike’s Missed Call of the Week”, Jon’s “What the Hell Was That?” and Mark’s “Missing the Mark” (which desperately, desperately needs a new name, folks).

I’ll catch up on this weekend’s three cheers later and also chime in with thoughts on Tampa Bay’s win in Phoenix (with no games on the slate, I’ve got plenty of time) but, for now, have a look at Danny Briere’s stickwork on Frans Nielsen in the final minute of Philadelphia’s 6-1 trouncing of the Islanders.
