I never thought I would say this.
Where was Bryzgalov?
I know I've been a critic of Bryzgalov. Some might even say harsh. But i admitted after the last game against the Wild that Bryzgalov got just what he needed. A solid win, where he played very well, against a team he should have beaten. He did exactly what was expected of him. And after a solid performance, who started?
Now Bob has had a good season. But no matter how you look at it, we need Bryzgalov to perform if the Flyers are going to have a shot at the Cup. And he performed last game. And a start against the lowly Islanders would have been the perfect way to continue to build on what his last win gave him. But instead, Bobrovsky started, and the result was an atrocious performance for the Flyers. The Islanders haven't won in Philadelphia since 2007, but boy did they win tonight. 4-1 in fact.
Matt Read scored the only goal for an awful Flyers attack. The Islanders dominated this game. Yes, you heard right, the Islanders dominated a game. I'm as shocked as you are. And now, I ask only one thing. Put Bryz back in, and let him build on his last win.
