The Flyers were upset with Sean Avery for taking on and knocking down Matt Carle with a right hand to the jaw in a second-period fight that was the first of the defenseman’s six-year NHL career, such as it was, but it’s the Eastern leaders who surely will have to deal with NHL VP Colin Campbell for an incident that took place in the final seconds of their Garden 3-2 victory over the Rangers.
For after Brandon Prust laid a big hit on Kimmo Timonen and was skating down the boards, both Daniel Briere and Scott Hartnell threw punches from the Flyers’ bench that made contact with the Rangers’ winger. That provides grounds for supplementary discipline.
Briere was suspended for three games earlier in the season for his crosscheck to the head of the Islanders’ Frans Nielsen on Oct. 30. The center had been suspended twice previously by the league.
