Flyers pull Bryzgalov in 2nd period

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.

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
