Philadelphia Flyers forward Daniel Briere has been suspended for two games, without pay, as a result of a late hit on an unsuspecting opponent -- Avalanche defenseman Scott Hannan -- during NHL Game #335 in Colorado Monday night, the National Hockey League announced today.

The incident took place at 9:06 of the second period, immediately following Hannan's goal.

THANK YOU. Very glad they decided to punish the little bitch.

+1. If only they would suspend all the other players that have thrown cheapshots recently.

If they suspended everybody who threw a late hit like that one, there wouldn't be a full roster in the NHL and the AHL and ECHL would have to shut down.

I agree that Richards is the one that really deserves to be suspended.

Any Flyer that gets suspended is a good thing.

Yes, this hit deserves a 2 game suspension but the hit on Parise at the end of last game got zero punishment at any level. Of course, if Parise had gotten hurt that hit would have been a 5-10 game suspension but as long as we have this nice consistency... :lol:
