Video: Ilya Bryzgalov on His Reception in Winnipeg

Philadelphia Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov discusses the serenade of mocking he received in Winnipeg on Tuesday night.

Not a humongous big deal—at all—but here’s video of Ilya Bryzgalov joking with reporters about the constant chants by Winnipeg Jets fans during the Flyers’ 5-4 OT win at the MTS Centre on Tuesday night, as well as the boos he’s heard in Philadelphia lately. [Video below]

 

Always a little easier to laugh it off after a win, though it wasn’t Bryz’s best game (nor his worst). I think we all know the reception at home will be better once his play evens out and, hopefully, rounds into the top-10 form the team was targeting when it signed him. Also, as we said in the recap, it was hard not to appreciate and even get a laugh out of the concerted, constant effort the Jets fans put together to once again rip Bryz, who once scoffed at the idea of moving to Winnipeg. It’s good to have hockey back there.
