Danny Briere has been suspended three games for a cross-check to the head of New York's Frans Nielsen on Saturday night. The team confirmed the news.
Briere will miss tonight's game against Carolina, Thursday's game against the New York Rangers and Saturday's game against those same New York Islanders. The threat of retaliation in Saturday's game might have something to do with the length of the suspension.
