CSN Philly’s Tim Panaccio reported today that Danny Briere is experiencing “lower body soreness” in the groin or adomen area and left practice early today. Apparently it was tweaked in the Washington game on Tuesday and he has been feeling pain since. This comes as GREAT news for the Flyers who are just getting over the Parent and Betts injuries and are without Gagne at the moment as well.
Panaccio also states that Gagne’s trip to Montreal to see his orthopedic surgeons did not accomplish much as he is having more tests done today because he got two different opininions from his different doctors.
Don’t expect to see Briere play for at least the next week, depending on how serious it is. Keep in mind that he hurt his groin last year too, so hopefully this isn’t a recurring injury like it was before.
Regardless, the Flyers have a Halloween game tomorrow and I can’t wait to see what team comes to play. With Betts in the line-up, hopefully things will get better and they take it to the Hurricanes tomorrow. I’ll be at the game so expect a recap tomorrow night or Sunday depending on what’s going on. It’s a busy Philly weekend. Going to the Flyers game tomorrow, watching the Phillies after, then going to the Birds/Giants on Sunday and watching the Phillies after.
We’ll have more on the two little French-Canadian men and their injuries as it becomes available.
