Danny Briere left the ice early today; Lower Body Injury

Danny Briere left practice early Friday because of what Flyers coach John Stevens called "a lower-body injury."

Since Briere missed most of last season with groin and abdominal injuries, alarms are going off in Flyerdom right now.

The Flyers recalled David Laliberte from the AHL Adirondack Phantoms.

Simon Gagne is already sidelined with a double-hernia, and Briere is doubtful for for Saturday against Carolina.

GM Paul Holmgren reported that two of Gagne's doctors have given conflicting solutions to repairing his hernias. The Flyers, Gagne and the doctors are trying to resolve those issues.

On a positive front, it looks like Blair Betts (shoulder) and Ryan Parent (groin) will return from injuries and be back in the lineup Saturday.

@tpanotch - Danny Briere left the ice early at practice. Lower body injury. You don't think this is a repeat of last year?
IDK how serious, but this is a big concern regardless
