Ilya Bryzgalov Injury: Philadelphia Flyers Downplay Loss Of Goalie

The Philadelphia Flyers tried to downplay the impact of Ilya Bryzgalov's injury Wednesday, saying that Bryzgalov should be healthy soon and the team still has enough pieces left to finish off the regular season strong.

"Maybe I'm naive, I just don't think it's too bad. Hopefully he comes back. That's all. We try to stay positive as much as possible. I still believe he'll be back soon and he won't miss much time," said Danny Briere.

"It's no big deal," Braydon Coburn added. "It's okay. We have seven or so games here left. It might be good for Bryz to recharge his battery and prepare for the playoffs."
