Briere leading Flyers charge against former team

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Philadelphia Flyers center Danny Briere is getting a big kick out of being booed in Buffalo.

If the fans are booing him, then the Sabres former co-captain figures he must be doing something right in helping the Flyers win two straight to secure a 2-1 lead in their NHL first-round playoff series.

Four years after leaving the Sabres to sign with the Flyers in free agency, Briere has become the focus again in Buffalo for his ability to score clutch goals.

After scoring the decisive goal in a 5-4 victory in Game 2 last weekend, Briere sparked a two-goal second period in the Flyers' 4-2 victory Monday.

Game 4 is at Buffalo on Wednesday.
