Bryzgalov Leads Flyers to Shutout Win Over Devils
Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 17 shots for this third straight shutout and fourth in five games to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 3-0 win over the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night.
Sean Couturier, Jakub Voracek and Danny Briere scored to provide the offense.
After an underwhelming start to the season, Bryzgalov has dominated of late and proved worthy of the nine-year, $51 million contract he signed in June. He stretched his shutout streak to more than 196 minutes and has stopped 152 of 154 shots.
The Devils didn’t test him much, but it might not have mattered. He went 3-0 last week with a 0.65 goals-against average and a .979 save percentage in three starts.
