08:23 AM ET 03.27 | An injury in this area may present a hu-man-gous issue. Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren, through a team spokesman, said goalie Ilya Bryzgalov was fine after the team's 5-3 loss to lowly Tampa Bay on Monday at the Wells Fargo Center. Bryzgalov's limp said otherwise. Bryzgalov, who has become the Flyers' meal ticket, limped noticeably around the locker room after the game and apparently had X-rays. ... The Flyers do not permit their players to talk about injuries. Holmgren is the only one who addresses injuries, and he goes to extremes to avoid talking about them. Bryzgalov was asked if he needs a breather. "I just an employee here," he said before limping away.

Uh oh.....

Well, they weren't going anywhere with him in net, so this is probably a wash.

Hmmm...odd for him to put it that way. Perhaps Bryz isn't too happy with being asked to not be so talkative with the media"?

Probably not. His improved play has coincided with him dialing back all the chatter with the media. He seems to have found a good balance. Hopefully, this injury isn't anything serious and he can get a breather before the playoffs.

And, I'm going to find that person, tie him to a tank and drag him over to the conversation pit!

So they can stick Bobky in the net for the next game and hope whatever it is will go away with a little rest. Even as a heartless Penguin fan I gotta feel bad for the guy. He finally gets his game back and goes on a run only to get hurt. Any idea what may have caused it?

There were a couple of bad turnovers last night that led to Lightning goals, that were hardly Bryz's fault.
