Bryzgalov apparently is the person who broke the news that he won't be playing.

Among what he is quoted as saying:

Bobrovsky "gives us chance to win."

That he, Bryzgalov, is "going to have a nice tea and enjoy the bench"

"Of course [it is disappointing]. I’m a human. I’m not made from the steel."

One of the biggest questions heading into Sunday's practice day apparently has been answered.

According to goalie Ilya Bryzgalov, he will not be starting in the Winter Classic. That means backup Sergei Bobrovsky, who turned in a strong performance in Thursday's win against Pittsburgh, will play against the Rangers on Monday afternoon.

"I have great news and even better news," Bryzgalov said. "OK, great news is I’m not playing tomorrow night and better news is we have a chance to win the game (Monday)."

Several players said after Sunday's practice that Bobrovsky is being rewarded for his consistent performance this season.
