No. Team defense was bad, but Bryzgalov was plenty bad all on his own regardless of the D. It's not the D's fault his speed and positioning were off and he struggled to track the puck. It doesn't matter how good the D is...if you're letting in as many unscreened top-circle wrist shots and blue line shots as Bryz was, the goalie is letting you down.
