Briere leads postseason charge for Flyers

NHL.com @NHL

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Danny Briere is always one of the most undersized players on the ice.

In the postseason, no Flyer comes up as big.

Briere has 94 points (41-53-94) in 93 career playoff games. He scored six goals in Philadelphia's seven-game postseason win over Buffalo. Last season, Briere led the Flyers' run to the Stanley Cup finals. He finished as the leading scorer in the postseason with 30 points. He also set the Flyers' franchise record for postseason scoring, eclipsing Brian Propp's 12 goals and 28 points in 1987.

This year, the 5-foot-10 Briere added inspirational speeches to his postseason resume. With the Flyers trailing in the second intermission of Game 6, he fired them up by saying he wasn't ready for the season to be over.

He has to do it again against Boston. Game 1 is Saturday.
