sounds like Bryz played a great game

Big Game for Bryzgalov

In the wee hours of this morning U.S./Canada time, Ilya Bryzgalov got the start in goal for CSKA Moscow in a road game against Amur Khabarovsk. Located a mere 20 miles from the Russia-Chinese border, Khaborovsk is nearly 5,300 miles away from Moscow.

Playing in front of a crowd of 7,100 fans, CSKA nipped the home team by a 2-1 score. Bryzgalov was the star of the game for his team, which understandably did not have its skating legs for much of the match.

Bryzgalov turned back 33 of 34 shots to earn the win. He was especially good in the second period, stopping 14 of 15 shots and helping CSKA survive three penalty kills. CSKA then controlled most of the third period and earned the one goal win.

Igor Grigorenko scored his second goal of the game to break the 1-1 deadlock with 4:39 remaining in regulation. Alexander Osipov scored the lone goal for Amur.
