The funny thing about Danny B's back, Jules…
Yesterday, I wrote that someone on either the Flyers or Penguins was going to die. Danny Briere might be the first casualty.
The Flyers announced that Danny Briere would be out “indefinitely” with an upper-back contusion as a result of Joe Vitale’s hit late in the third period of yesterday’s Anchorman-Channel 4 News Team street fight.
You have to figure that the back bruise won't keep Briere out very long, but it's still concerning. Of course, players often get concussed on hits like this… so just tuck that away in the back of your mind, for now.
Nicklas Grossmann will also be out for 7-10 days with – you guessed it – a lower-body injury.
