Bryzgalov Has Moved On

From Don McGowan at CanWest News,

The 27-year-old Russian, who had played his entire NHL_career with the Ducks, was touched when the Anaheim crowd applauded him as his career highlights were displayed on the Honda Center video screen.

“The crowd stood up and gave me cheering,” said Bryzgalov, who was named Tuesday as the NHL’s No. 2 star of the week ending Nov. 25. “This was a great moment. I started a bit of crying because I don’t expect 17,000 people to stand up and start cheering. It was a great moment.”

That’s where the sentimentality ended.  Bryzgalov stopped 23 shots and two more in overtime as the Coyotes beat the defending Stanley Cup champions 4-3.

“We are all professionals,” Bryzgalov said. “We came to (Anaheim) to win this game. Right now, I play for the Coyotes, so no friends on the ice. We have to beat this team. We need the points. No sharing.”
