Danny Briere received a three game suspension for his cross-check to the head of Frans Nielsen. It will also cost him $237,804.87 in salary. Yikes.
"Nielsen called me a few expletive words and didn’t appreciate that I was doing that,” Briere said, “and the face-off before he did the same thing to me – he came over with his stick, had me in a headlock, so I didn’t know what he was doing. I just wanted to keep my hands high and try to protect myself.”
