08:21 AM ET 10.28 | A very expensive hole is forming the Flyers net. Ilya Bryzgalov has allowed nine goals in a 24-hour span and an unfathomable 18 goals in his last four appearances. He has lost five straight and his biggest critic looks to be himself. "I'm terrible and I want to apologize in front of the fans, in front of my teammates and I don't know what's going on," said Bryzgalov. ... "I just can't stop the puck. That's it. It's very simple. You can't ask more from the forwards, they scored eight goals and we're still losing. Obviously it's terrible goalie. It's me. ... "I have zero confidence in myself right now," said Bryzgalov. "I'm lost in the woods right now." He's not the only one.

Goalie problems in Philly. Who knew?

If the Flyers are going to pull thier goalie after 4 goals they're going to have to carry three of them.

I feel like saying told ya.

But I didn't think Bryzgalov was going to have a major collapse until the playoffs.

Bryzgalov in Phili was a terrible fit from the beginning.

The Flyers have their own history of Russian goalies choking in the playoffs, they didn't need to bring in another Russian goalie who has chocked in the playoffs outside of Phili.

Besides, I said at the time of the move, and still think so, that Bob is better in net.

Ilya's taking the heat but Bob let in the first FIVE goals last night.

It's a riot to have the odd games like that...memorable. Heckuva show for the fans...Yep...I'm sure Cromster and Phantom had a riot.
Bryz may be sorry that he went to a city with parks afterall. In Philly, don't they bury people in them...or just bad goalies?

He's probably wishing he went to the KHL...

Yep, there is a real goalie controversy brewing in Philly. Which goalie is the worst? Bobky or Bryz?

Yeah...but Bryzgalove only faced 10 SHOTS and that was when the Flyers had a chance to take the game back.

If they buried bad goalies in that city the city greenspaces would be overflowing.

You're on a roll today Danny. Glad you're still with us and not hurling yourself off a building...I told you it would be much better to just hurl...Like Glenn Hall, just get it out of your system before the game starts.

Nice win for the Habs in Beantown last night too...and a shout out to the Habs for potting one on Price just to make it close...as the Bruins couldn't score. LOL

funny that a 17 goal game after the thread yesterday.
Philly eats goalies (as I said when the signed this guy) like the Rangers eat snipers

I know it's out of character but I was being nice to Phantom. :-)

Doesn't seem to matter who is playing goal for Philly if their defense lets everyone and their mother sit on the goalie's front step.
