The former Flyers center was a vital piece in the success of the team over his six seasons in Philadelphia. Fans did not forget the excitement and grit Briere provided during his tenure in Philadelphia and it showed in the standing ovation he received after a video montage.
Briere scored 124 regular season goals to go along with 159 assists for 283 points in his six seasons in Philadelphia. But everyone knows that Briere is "Mr. Playoffs" as he comes alive when the lights are brightest. In 68 career playoff games with the Flyers, Briere put up 72 points (37 goals, 35 assists) with his best performance coming in 2010 when he scored 12 goals and dished out 18 assists for 30 points in 23 playoff games during the Flyers run to the Stanley Cup Finals.
Thank you for the memories, Danny.
