CSN displayed a weird stat after Daniel Briere scored a goal

This is an odd one. After Daniel Briere scored to make it a 1-1 game against the Washington Capitals, the CSN broadcast displayed an interesting graphic. Usually these tend to mention how many goals the player has scored so far that season or something along those lines. Instead, CSN chose to display when Briere last scored four goals in a game. Spoiler alert: He hasn’t scored...
