from Dmitry Chesnokov of Puck Daddy,
Goalie Ilya Bryzgalov had an eventful first season with the Philadelphia Flyers. He recently spoke with Natalia Bragilevskaya, SovSport’s reporter in Philadelphia, about losing to the New Jersey Devils and that David Clarkson goal; how difficult the critics have been to deal with this season; and whether he ever regretted signing with the Flyers.
Q. You’re in a bad mood, Ilya?
BRYZGALOV: “Of course. I was expecting different. But New Jersey played better.”
What can you say about yourself? You made a few mistakes.
The Clarkson goal that turned out to be the deciding one in the series.
“Yes, I made a mistake. But when a player makes a pass and the opponent intercepts it, no one says anything, right? I understand that I am being criticized by everyone but the lazy. But I am trying not to think about it.”
Can you take out anything positive from this season?
“I gained invaluable experience.”
What is it?
“It is difficult to describe with words. It is a psychology, a new view on life.”
