Video: Bryzgalov wants this one back

Apr 13, 2014, 10:15 PM EDT

For the most part, Ilya Bryzgalov has taken full advantage of his opportunity to grab at least a temporary hold of the Minnesota Wild’s starting job. That doesn’t meant that Bryzgalov hasn’t had his, well, Bryzgalov moments.

Sunday was a prime example of that, as this odd goal happened (and maybe helped the Nashville Predators turn it another unusually high-scoring game for head coach Barry Trotz):

      Stick to the board where the short bus drops you off, eh Leonard? You don’t want to worry anyone…. :)

    Like was pointed out to you all in another thread–you never EVER intentionally dial down momentum. When the pony wants to run…you RUN THE PONY! That game of rest for Breezy sure did him good, didn’t it? Throughout his whole career–a streaky goalie and what do you do? Break the chain… Yeo has quickly developed into a very fine coach–but this one came from the pain of youth and inexperience. He’ll learn.

    Momentum means EVERYTHING this time of year. Just ask the Blues… It’s a gift from God–and, if you have a clue, you NEVER do anything to break it for any reason…

    Now–game one… MASSIVE character test. This game will determine the series…

    That’s an oopsie! He fall down, go boom!

    Went to the game and had to chuckle when he wiped out on that clearing attempt. The whole game was lackluster, as Yeo didn’t play the big guys on the penalty kill, played guys out of position (Blum/Niederietter), and no one really tried to block shots for fear of getting injured for the playoffs. First period was fun — should have left at the first intermission.

    There should be a contest of worst goalie gaffs. Bryz’s here is pretty bad. I don’t know if Jonathan Quick’s would win though:

    He went down like he was shot by a cannon!
