Breaking News: Daniel Briere Leaves Game with Lower Body/Groin Injury

Chris DiFrancescoAnalyst IMarch 5, 2009

Daniel Briere left the game in the third with what GM Paul Holmgren says is a "lower body" injury. I'm pretty sure this is a groin issue.

At this point, Briere should be shut down for the season. This is slowly becoming another Peter Forsberg situation. The Upshall deal better pan out the way the organization is touting it to.

With the playoffs coming very soon, another enforcer in Carcillo isnt going to bring you anywhere near team production like Scottie Upshall was bringing. Upshall didn't bring much, but he is a more effective asset than Carcillo at this point.
