PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Flyers pulled goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov just 3:07 into the second period of Game 4 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series after he allowed five goals on 18 shots by the Pittsburgh Penguins.
He was replaced by Sergei Bobrovsky, who started Game 1 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs for the Flyers, but played just two games, allowing 10 goals on 81 shots.
Bryzgalov entered the game with a 3.96 goals-against average and .868 save percentage that were better only than the Penguins' Marc-Andre Fleury. Despite his poor play, the Flyers led the series 3-0.
