It's hard to believe the Philadelphia Flyers could score eight goals against the Winnipeg Jets, yet it was Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov whose confidence was shattered during the game. That's because the Flyers gave up nine.
After surrendering 14 goals in their last two games combined, the Flyers will look to plug the leaks at home Saturday night at 7 p.m. against the Carolina Hurricanes (CSN-PH).
The Hurricanes enter a Friday night meeting against Chicago with the fourth-worst goal differential in the NHL (-6) and have lost three straight games, two of them overtime losses. They have been led by center Jeff Skinner, who has scored four goals and six assists through nine games.
Bryzgalov allowed four goals on ten shots against Winnipeg in a relief role and noted afterward that he has "zero confidence" in himself right now.
"It's just, I can't stop the puck," said Bryzgalov, who has a 5.05 goals-against average and .802 save percentage in his last four appearances. "It's very simple. You can't ask more from the forwards. They scored eight goals, and we're still losing."
