Some fans in Philadelphia might not be behind Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov, but he's got at least one invested observer solidly in his corner.
"I like the way he plays," said Hockey Hall of Famer and Flyers goaltending legend Bernie Parent. "Is there room for improvement? Of course, you never graduate as a goalie, but I really like what I see."
Parent said this Thursday afternoon, prior to seeing Bryzgalov's 25-save performance against the Pittsburgh Penguins. It was Bryzgalov's fourth straight win and lowered his goals-against average to 2.84.
