Flyers forward Danny Briere has been suspended two games by the NHL for his hit on the Colorado Avalanche defenseman Scott Hannan on Monday night in Denver.

Hannan left the game after the second-period hit and did not return. He was diagnosed with a neck injury.

"I respect the decision," Briere said. "I'll live with it, and try to move on after the two-game suspension."

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said: "We were informed that Danny Briere was suspended two games by the NHL for his hit last night on Scott Hannan. It’s obviously disappointing to not have Danny in the lineup for the next few games, but it’s a decision that the league has come down with and we’ll live with it. We look forward to having Danny back in the lineup in two games."
