The numbers don't lie: Danny Briere has been "Mr. Postseason" in his career.

In 104 career playoff games, he has 106 points. He has 26 goals in his last 41 playoff games.

Oh, and he has seven goals in seven playoff games this season, including the overtime tally in the Flyers' 4-3 win over New Jersey on Sunday at the electric Wells Fargo Center.

“I remember growing up watching the Montreal Canadiens and Patrick Roy. He was an example of the bigger the game was, he seemed to get better and better," Briere said on Monday.

He also recalled "Claude Lemieux scoring all those big goals. Those were examples when I was growing up. I remember when I got to Buffalo, Chris Drury was another example for me....He always had a knack, not just the playoffs but the regular season - of big plays at the right time. I don’t know how else to explain it. But in my mind, it’s probably more mental than anything.’’

Briere was asked when it sunk in that HE was among those guys?

"I don’t really see myself in quite that category," he said. "Those guys that I mentioned all have Stanley Cups. Until you win, you can’t be considered in that group, I guess.’’

Since he left Buffalo, Briere has 36 playoff goals; all the Sabres combined have 33.
