‘Ruff reiterated the team’s stance that Briere does not have a sports hernia, the injury that will keep winger J.P. Dumont sidelined until after the Olympic break. “My understanding from the doctors is that it’s not,” Ruff said. “I have the utmost confidence in our doctors. I know it’s been rumored, but hopefully we’re not going down that road. Does that mean Danny isn’t getting one? I can’t answer that. Maybe he has to be evaluated again. We’ll just keep trying to figure out the best plan of action.”‘
