For all the troubles that the Bruins have had this season, at least Tim Thomas and Tuukka Rask have been solid. The Philadelphia Flyers, losers of two straight, cannot say that about their current goalie situation. "I have zero confidence in myself right now," declared Philadelphia Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov following his team's 9-8 (!) loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night. "I can't stop the puck, it's very simple," he continued, in a self-deprecating rant that is as eye-opening for Bryzgalov's candor as it is for how hard he is on himself.

Ilya Bryzgalov was acquired by the Flyers in the offseason and signed to a big deal, but he's struggled in Philly. He called himself terrible and said he was lost after giving up 4 goals on 10 shots.

The teams were pretty evenly matched in the first period, which ended with both teams tied at 1. However, the Candiens took over and completely outplayed...
Jaromir Jagr scored two goals and Ilya Bryzgalov rebounded strong in net from a string of bad games to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 5-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night. Bryzgalov needed an outing like this one to restore the confidence he said was shot after an 0-4-1 stretch with a 4.62 goals against average.

The Philadelphia Flyers seem to be on a roller coaster ride this season. They have certainly had their share of ups and downs, but that’s to be expected with all the new faces in the lineup.
One of those new faces, goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov, has been inconsistent in the games that he has played in. [...]
Tim Thomas led the Bruins onto the ice for pregame warmups, meaning he'll be between the pipes tonight when the Bruins take on the Canadiens in a little over a half hour.
