Briere out vs. Rangers

Flyers forward Danny Briere will not play in today's game against the Rangers because of what general manager Paul Holmgren termed lower body soreness.

Briere, second on the team in points, is listed as day-to-day, Holmgren said.

This is the first game Briere will miss due to injury this season. He previously was suspended for three games in November.

The Flyers have four games remaining in the regular season over the next 7 days -- today against the Rangers, Tuesday in Ottawa, Friday in Buffalo and Saturday in the regular-season finale at home against the Islanders.

With Washington's win last night, the Flyers have fallen out of first place in the Eastern Conference for the first time since Jan. 4.


Last night, the Flyers recalled defenseman Danny Syvret from Adirondack, of the AHL. He will be available to play today.
