from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer,
“The way he plays, he’s always under control and never out of position,” center Claude Giroux said. “He works hard, and when one of your best players has that attitude, obviously everybody is going to follow.”
Max Talbot, the Flyers’ new checking-line center, appreciates having a quality goalie on his side. He had one - Marc-Andre Fleury - when he was with Pittsburgh.
“It’s huge,” Talbot said. “You just look at our last game as an example, with what happened at the end of the second period.”
He was referring to a clutch stop Bryzgalov made on Zach Parise’s deflection in the closing seconds of the period, preserving the Flyers’ 1-0 lead. They won, 3-0.
“There’s a huge difference between going back to the locker room 1-1, or it’s 1-0 with a big save and the momentum,” Talbot said. “There’s a big difference in that save and the whole game in general. That’s what a good goalie is going to do. He’s going to keep us in games and give us momentum with big saves.”
