Ilya Bryzgalov is easily one of the most interesting players in the NHL and his discussions about the Universe on HBO’s 24/7 have become legendary; he even unveiled a Star Wars mask this year. Unfortunately for Bryzgalov, his time with the Philadelphia Flyers has been pretty forgettable. His stats have been pretty bad for a guy that signed a 9-year $51 Million deal two years ago. On Wednesday night during the Flyers game against the Montreal Canadiens, Bryzgalov actually ducked on a shot that was coming at his head. Sure the shot from David Desharnais was deflected, but Bryzgalov is a goalie, it is his job to stop pucks. You have to wonder if his time in Philadelphia is almost up. [YouTube]

One theory: Bobrovsky is playing without the kind of pressure there is in Philadelphia. So now the Flyers have acquired a goaltender from...
Well just hours after the aquisition of Steve Mason as the new backup for Brygalov the high flying Canadiens took on the Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center.

The shots were abounding the first 10minutes, 7-6, and with about 6:30 left in the first, the Montreal Canadiens struck first. Alexei Emelin wrists a...
