Flyers C Briere to play in minors

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Flyers center Danny Briere will play two games this week for Philadelphia's AHL affiliate, his first action in more than a month because of a groin strain.

Briere has five goals and nine points in only nine games this season and will work on his conditioning in two games for the Philadelphia Phantoms.

Briere had surgery Oct. 25 to fix a torn abdominal muscle and he left a Dec. 2 game against Tampa Bay with a groin injury. He hasn't played for the Atlantic Division-leading Flyers since that game.

The Phantoms play the Worcester Sharks on Wednesday and the Lowell Devils on Friday.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
