Ilya Bryzgalov Goes To Play Puck, Falls Down, Gives Up Goal

Minnesota Wild goalie Ilya Bryzgalov went to play the puck against the Nashville Predators and it went as poorly as possible. Bryzgalov caught a rut and fell down, sliding into the corner as the Preds put the puck into the empty net. Not a good look right before the playoffs.

Minnesota Wild: Ilya Bryzgalov is the playoff goalie

Forgive me for completely taking a 180 degree turn when it comes to my thoughts on the Minnesota Wild’s goaltending situation. Just three weeks ago, I was exclaiming that Darcy Kuemper has to be the guy moving forward. The most recent piece I posted claimed that if Josh Harding is healthy he deserves the nod in the playoffs. Today, I’m going to say something that just over a...

Wild Getting Great Goaltending From Bryzgalov

from Scott Burnside of ESPN, For the record, Ilya Bryzgalov is now 4-0-1 since we wrote that the Minnesota Wild would have the worst goaltending in the Western Conference going into the playoffs, and maybe the worst goaltending of all 16 playoff teams regardless of the final grid.

Ilya Bryzgalov Makes Ridiculous Stick Save on James Neal

Ilya Bryzgalov made a humongous big save on Saturday night on James Neal. It’s a wonder that Bryz made this sprawling stick save on his way to his second shutout in his last eight starts. The ex-Philadelphia Flyer goaltender has been playing great lately, taking over the starting job from rookie Darcy Kuemper and winning three of his last four starts. [] The post Ilya Bryzgalov...

WATCH: Wild goalie makes fan's night by giving her stick

YouTube Prior to Wednesday’s tilt against the Canucks, Wild goalie Ilya Bryzgalov handed his stick to a young fan waiting at the glass by the end of the bench.  Bryzgalov was just traded to Minnesota from Edmonton in early March.  Things like this go a long way to getting your new fans on your side.
