Philadelphia Flyer Danny Briere scores in rehab assignment

PHILADELPHIA – Danny Briere had a goal and an assist in the first game of his minor-league conditioning stint to lead the Philadelphia Flyers’ AHL affiliate to a 7-1 win on Wednesday night.

Briere saw his first action in more than a month because of a groin strain. He had surgery Oct. 25 to fix a torn abdominal muscle and he left a Dec. 2 game against Tampa Bay with a groin injury. He hasn’t played for the Flyers since that game.
