Bryzgalov Ducks the Puck

I’d like to preface this by saying that if it wasn’t for Ilya Bryzgalov standing on his head at times this season with that poor excuse of a defense that Paul Holmgren “constructed,” the Philadelphia Flyers probably wouldn’t have half the win total that they do right now (which is 16, in case you were wondering). But I digress…

The Philadelphia Flyers continue to pay the giant pile of steaming Russian poo $51 million while said poo goes and does something like this:

As if completely forgetting at that moment that his position on the ice is goalie, you know, the guy who’s supposed to use any and all body parts and selected accessories to keep the goddamn puck out of the net, Bryz went all deer-in-headlights, saw a knuckling puck come flying toward his (Star Wars goalie mask covered) face, and got the hell out of the way. The force was not with him in that instant, and NBC’s brutally-honest Mike Milbury, rightfully so, let the Russian bear have it.

But hey, all things considered, this team is on, by far, it’s best run of the season (sadly, though, it’s just a 3-game winning streak) and miraculously sits only 4 points out of a playoff spot with 12 games left. Crazier things have happened I guess.
