VIDEO: Danny Briere Gives Ryan Miller Love Tap After Game 7 Goal

As the first period wound down in a scoreless first period between the Philadelphia Flyers and Buffalo Sabres in Tuesday night's Game 7, the Flyers felt like they were going to leave for the dressing room with nothing to show for 20 minutes of hockey that they thoroughly dominated. 

But then, Danny Briere won a faceoff, Braydon Coburn teed up a shot and a Mike Grier deflection sent it through the five-hole of goaltender Ryan Miller. Briere, skating towards, the net, was a wee bit excited as the puck crossed the goal line, and that excitement came out with a slight message to Miller, his ex-teammate and friend.

Watch as Briere skates through the crease after the goal.

And, of course, in GIF form.

What was the meaning of this, Mr. Briere? (video of his post-game conference here)

Q: Did you say anything to Ryan Miller when you hit him in the back of the head after the first goal?

"No. That was a little excitement, over joy, a little bit after that goal."
