Briere beat him to the puck!!!!! why should that be a bad thing?
if the puck is along the boards and you beat the player to the puck how is it NOT possible to have your back to the defender?
whether or not you think Briere(I could understand it if he turned himself at the last moment but he didn't) put himself in a bad spot doesn't excuse to shove him from behind into the boards....he CHOSE to extend his arms and shove him from behind.
