Jay Greenberg has a CSN article:

“Bryzgalov is one of those goalies that psychologically can beat you,” said a coach of many years in the Western Conference. “There’s a feeling sometimes when you play against him you are not going to score, which forces players to squeeze sticks too tight or think you have to overwhelm him with shots on goal.

“He makes players drop their heads. And those kinds of goalies are unique. As a coach, you run around all over the place trying to fix problems, when, in fact, the problem usually is in goal.”

Anybody reading this know a team like he described? But would anybody who is reading this know Bryzgalov if they fell over him? And now that we mention it, yikes, couldn’t that happen, too?

“He’s been durable,” said the coach. “Another big reason to like him.”
