Briere's mother passes away

Sad news out of Gatineau, Quebec, as it was reported by several sources, Flyers writer Anthony San Filippo among them, that Danny Briere's mother, Constance Brunet, passed away.

Brunet, 60, was the victim of a brain aneurism.

This is especially tough news for the 34-year-old, who was coming off a 16-goal, 49-point season last year which included an odd stretch between January 7 and March 13 (23 games) without hitting the back of the net. He rebounded with eight goals and 13 points in 11 playoff games.

This article is absolutely tasteless. The guys mother just died and you include a comment about a scoring drought. Please change professions. You are a pariah and should no longer report news you insensitive idiot!
