Bryzgalov wants you to credit Devils instead of bashing Flyers

For anyone aware of Ilya Bryzgalov‘s eccentric personality before HBO fixed its cameras on him,* the idea of him playing in a harsh media and fan environment for the Philadelphia Flyers was fascinating. (Or worrisome, if you were a Philly fan “in the know.”)

After all these months, Breezy’s tiger-protecting naivete is still sort of charming. When asked about the New Jersey Devils’ dominant 4-1 win – and the Flyers’ flaccid effort – Bryzgalov told Sam Carchidi how he’d like the story to be framed.

“Bryz says give Devils credit instead of criticizing Flyers.”

My guess is that will happen right around the time that the Philadelphia Eagles erect a Donovan McNabb statue.

* – Yes, he said weird and hilarious things well before 24/7 came along.

    Take an innocuous comment made by player, turn it into a story about how weird a Russian goalie is, insert a tiger joke, and repeat. Come on, PHT, you can do a little better than that. Aren’t the universe, bear, and tiger jokes getting a little old now?

      Do you watch hockey or just like to bash Philadelphia since they knocked your pathetic excuse for a hockey team out of the playoffs?

        why would you ever cheer for the Pirates? They are just as bad as the Pens
