Bryzgalov, Flyers fall to Leafs

NHL.com | Wednesday, 09.21.2011 / 9:53 PM

Prized free-agent goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov, making his first appearance as a Flyer, allowed stick-side goals to Juraj Mikus, Matt Frattin and Joe Colborne, as the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated Philadelphia by a 4-2 score at the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night.

Displaying a new Philadelphia-themed mask, Bryzgalov, who signed a nine-year, $51 million contract in June, received a loud ovation when introduced. He struggled later, though, as Mikus, pinching in from the point, beat him top shelf with a wrister at 15:54 of the first. Frattin then whacked a rolling puck past him from 20 feet out at 14:31 of the second, as the two teams completed a two-day, home-and-home, preseason split.

"We feel full support here, I liked the reaction," Bryzgalov said. "But I can't be satisfied with my performance."

Ben Scrivens and Jonas Gustavsson combined for 21 saves and Colby Armstrong had two assists as the Maple Leafs concluded a stretch of three games in as many days. Colborne and Frattin added insurance goals in the third. The latter was an empty netter.

"We came out with a lot more pop and intensity tonight," Toronto coach Ron Wilson said, a day after losing to the Flyers, 4-0, at the Air Canada Centre. "We were able to get our legs going early, and we were able to keep it up."

Tomas Hyka and Erik Gustafsson scored for Philadelphia (1-1). Bryzgalov finished with 21 saves.

"I thought he played well," Philadelphia coach Peter Laviolette said of Bryzgalov. "But I think we need to be better defensively in front of him."

The Flyers return to action Thursday night against Detroit in London, Ontario, while the Leafs will host Buffalon on Friday at the Air Canada Centre.
