Agreed. I'd like to see Bryz stop one of those two breakaways, but when the only 2 goals you allow all night are on breakaways resulting from horrible defensive coverage, you played a pretty damn good game. And you definitely deserve a "W".

It really is a shame to see the forwards and defensemen let Bryz down like that; no excuse for basically losing a game 2-1 when your own goalie stands on his head and you're facing another team's 3rd string goalie (he was 3rd string till they traded Bishop).

Former Flyers goalie Antero Niittymäki has decided to retire from pro hockey due to constant hip problems.

Quote:
Former NHL goalie Antero Niittymäki, 32, is forced to retire from hockey due to hip ailments.
- It is final now. When your body is done, it's done.

Niittymäki was almost forced to quit his career a year ago but thanks to the installation of an artificial hip joint replacement, he decided to try for one last time. He signed a one-year contract with TPS, but was restricted to only about 10 starts all season.
- The artificial joint replacement held up pretty well, but the other hip started to bother. And when you're not able to train properly it's hard to play well. It was getting tough mentally.

Hip problems have plagued Niittymäki for a long time. He estimates that his other hip will require an artificial joint replacement at some point in future.

- There is wear and tear. It looks like I'll have an artificial joint in my other hip too before I'm forty.

Niittymäki says he had time to deal with the end of his playing career in peace and quiet.

- This didn't come out of the blue. I've been preparing for this moment for the past few years. However, it is a bit sad, because without injuries I could have played for another 5 to 7 years.

- But I'm not bitter at all. I got to play 14 years as a professional and won championships and medals. It was a tremendous career especially since I wasn't exactly a star in the juniors.

Niittymäki intends to keep himself busy with the activities of his three children.

- Our son, 7, plays hockey, so I'm probably going to be involved in junior coaching. Our daughters, 3 and 6, are in gymnastics so I'll be busy driving them to activities.

Loved Niitty when he was here. Hope he lives a long healthy life without hockey.

He also back stopped the then philadelphia phantoms to a Calder Cup in 2005 where he posted a .943 sv% and a 1.75 GAA through 21 games.

Other notable in Niitty's career:

Early career
First goaltender to record an overtime goal in North American pro-hockey (11 April 2004)
Philadelphia Phantoms' franchise record for first goal by a goaltender
Philadelphia Phantoms' franchise record for lowest career GAA (2.19 GAA)
Philadelphia Phantoms' franchise record for lowest GAA during the postseason (1.75 GAA in 2005)
Philadelphia Phantoms' franchise record for most saves in a period during a playoff game (23 saves, 1st period, 29 April 2005)
Philadelphia Phantoms' franchise record for most saves in the postseason (611 saves in 2005)
Philadelphia Phantoms' franchise record for most shutouts in a season (7 SO in 2003–04)
Philadelphia Phantoms' franchise record for most shutouts in the postseason (3 SO in 2005) tied with Neil Little
Philadelphia Phantoms' franchise record for most wins by a goalie in a season (33 wins in 2004–05)

NHL
National Hockey League record for most consecutive wins, current streak and lifetime, and most lifetime undefeated wins, against a single team, for his streak of 17–0–0 against the Atlanta Thrashers tied with Chris Osgood (whose streak is against the Tampa Bay Lightning)
Philadelphia Flyers' franchise record for most saves in a game (54 on 5 January 2008)
Philadelphia Flyers' franchise record for first shootout win (6 December 2005)
Philadelphia Flyers' franchise record for most losses by a goalie in a season (29 in 2006–07) tied with Bernie Parent
Tampa Bay Lightning's franchise record for most saves in a game (47 on 25 March 2010)

he owns the record for most saves in a game for two different NHL franchises, that's pretty cool actually. How many other goalies can say that.

It's a real shame he couldn't stay healthy.

He has posted a .910 or better in 20 of his 37 starts, over which his avg sv% is a .937. While not good enough overall it's not exactly rare seeing him play well being as though he's done this in over half his starts.

I assume they just decided to leave Leighton because he'll be acquired again in the offseason.

Bryz played well last night but so did Lehner. I don't think it's fair to take that away from him. The Flyers came close to tying in the remaining minutes of the game and Lehner closed the door.

Outside of the goal, the closest chance the Flyers had to score another was the Hall chance where Lehner got a kick save on it.

He still stopped all the ones he's supposed too. I think he played well.

would have been nice to have our 3 breakaways on Lehner.

he was not tested with many high % scoring chances or breakaways.

You seem to give ringing endorsements for Bryz, but you don't seem to like Lehner. When Lehner is putting up very good numbers.

He is a highly touted goalie and is most likely gonna be the future starting goaltender (3-4 years) for the Senators and a very good one that that... better than Bryz

you noticed...

Bryz, team MVP, and yet no respect for the backup goalie who WON last nite..

not surprized.

i thought Lehner played very well, and as usual the Flyers found a way to make a backup look like the next King Henrik.. we have it down to a science.

Lehner tore up the american league. he is awesome. i wish we had him, but even tho he won last night it was a pretty easy night for him. he coulda pulled a bryz and took a nap through the first two periods. bryzgalov had a great game and i still think we can win a cup with him. not a stanely cup but like a really nice coffee cup.

Lehner isn't really a "backup" goalie.

The fallacy is "you people" believe this would happen here.

There are certainly better goalies than others, and I would have kept bob (maybe stolarz will be a badmofo in 4 years), but bob wouldn't have made much of a difference with this trainwreck.
