Ilya Bryzgalov Is Having A Grand Old Time Playing Angry Birds

Seemingly every goalie is either injured or terrible right now. It's a bad time to be a netminder. But not for Ilya Bryzgalov—he just discovered Angry Birds Star Wars.

Bryzgalov is tending goal for Russia at the IIHF World Championships, happy to leave behind talk of a potential Flyers amnesty, or an increasingly combative relationship with the Philly media. Bryzgalov has gone silent recently—presumably to focus on hockey (he beat the U.S. team 5-3 on Tuesday). But his Twitter account woke up today, and it's all about a different sort of game.


We presume all but that last one were auto-generated by the game, but it's still a very Bryz sort of poetry.
