Danny Briere will have a conference call tomorrow at 10 a.m. with the NHL discipline committee to discuss a possible suspension for his stickwork on the Islanders' Frans Neilsen in the final minute of the Flyers' 6-1 win last night.

Briere and Neilsen were jawing prior to a faceoff and after the puck was dropped Briere went to Neilsen's face with his stick. He was called for a cross-check major and then given a game misconduct.

That led to a lot of pushing and shoving between both teams and included a game misconduct for Dan Carcillo.
