Briere to miss a month with groin injury

Just as quickly as he came back, Danny Briere is gone again.

After missing nearly a month, Briere made his return to the ice last night for the Flyers. His night was cut short when he aggravated his nagging groin injury and now Briere figures to miss another month. The questions will linger as to whether the Flyers rushed him back too quickly but for now the team will have to do without their top playmaker.

The loss isn't huge for a Flyers team that has played most of the season without Briere anyway. The team has gotten used to not having their top center and Mike Richards, Jeff Carter and Simon Gagne have stepped up their play in Briere's absence. Briere needs to get himself 100% healthy before he returns to the ice, hopefully he won't rush back because there is still plenty of season left.
