Flyers' Danny Briere proves it's not how you start, it's how you finish


After a week long layoff following their series clincher over the Pittsburgh Penguins in the opening round of the NHL Playoffs, the Philadelphia Flyers looked rusty at times in Game 1 of their second round series against the New Jersey Devils Sunday.Danny Briere celebrates! Photo: Alex Brandon/AP

But good teams still find a way to win despite not being on their A game. And after Danny Briere scored the (official) game winning goal 4 minutes and 36 seconds into overtime, all of Philadelphia breathed a collective sigh of relief. The Flyers came away with a 4-3 win and didn’t let New Jersey maintain any momentum they may have had following their first round series win over the Florida Panthers.

With his goal, Briere has 106 career playoff points in 104 career playoff games. It was a rough season for Briere, who only scored 16 goals. If there’s one thing Philly fans have learned up close and personal the last several seasons however, it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish- and Briere is as clutch as any player in the NHL come playoff time.

The Flyers will play Game 2 on Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. In the meantime, get a complete recap of the game here at our partnering site Buzz On Broad.
