Ilya Bryzgalov Injury Update: MRI Reveals Chip Fracture

The Philadelphia Flyers received a blow on Tuesday, when an MRI revealed a chip fracture in goalie Ilya Bryzgalov's right foot.

The team announced that Bryzgalov will miss Thursday's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, but he is considered day-to-day and the injury is not considered serious, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

Bryzgalov, who had been brilliant recently before allowing four goals in 14 shots against the Tampa Bay Lightning Monday night, reportedly limped off the ice after being struck in warm ups on Monday. He was also seen limping in the locker room after the game, and required x-rays in addition to the MRI.

Sergei Bobrovsky will make his second start since Feb. 12 on Thursday against the Maple Leafs. Bobrovsky has not seen much action recently as the Flyers rode Bryzgalov's hot streak -- Bryzgalov has started 19 of Philadelphia's past 20 games.
