Ilya Bryzgalov Is Like A Kicked Puppy Who Must Learn To Trust Again

The Bryz Show has moved to Minnesota, and is likely to get his first action this weekend. At today's media's scrum, the usually expansive Bryzgalov was not so eager to play along.

From Michael Russo of the Star Tribune:

Q: How much are you looking forward to starting Sunday?

A: We practice to play in the game.

Q: How excited are you to play in front of the home fans?

A: Yeah, sure.

Q: Feel more comfortable in practice?

A: Yeah, better and better.

Q: Any superstitions or routines?

A: No.

I can't imagine why Bryzgalov might be wary of reporters.

Russo notes that he was told by Edmonton scribes that it took Bryzgalov a little while to warm up to them, so this is just a case of a guy once righteously burned by the Philly media testing the new waters before diving in.

At least Bryz's old tormentors have moved on with their lives, right?

Jesus fucking christ.
