Ilya Bryzgalov recently gave quite the interesting Russian interview, where he explained that he “…got very tired this season, to be honest.” He was referring to the massive amount of pressure he felt playing goal in Philadelphia, specifically in dealing with the fans and media.
All we want here at theScore is for Ilya to not change. We hope he doesn’t get beaten down, we hope he continues showing his wonderful, eclectic, entertaining personality. When that guy is in a playful mood, there’s just nobody like him. With his season coming to a close, we figured it was time to compile the all-time 10 best Ilya Bryzgalov quotes in a Backhand Shelf video.
