Wild Unlikely To Re-Sign Bryzgalov

News: The Wild are not expected to try and sign Ilya Bryzgalov when he becomes an unrestricted free agent this summer, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: It looks like the Wild plan to go into training camp with three goalies and have a competition for the starting job between Niklas Backstrom, Darcy Kuemper and Josh Harding. Ilya Bryzgalov should find a robust market for his services after a strong playoff performance (2.63 GAA in nine games) when the other three Wild goalies were injured.

Bryzgalov, Wild Eliminated In Six

News: Ilya Bryzgalov played well in Tuesday's Game 6 against Chicago, stopping 25 of 27 shots, but that 27th shot was Patrick Kane's series-clinching overtime winner.
Analysis: A tough end to the year for Bryz and the Wild, but the Russian netminder made a respectable showing in the playoffs, considering he's effectively the No. 4 goalie for the Wild. He only allowed six goals in the series' final four games.

Wild's Bryzgalov Lets In Two In Loss

News: Ilya Bryzgalov made 26 saves on 28 shots but took the loss to the Blackhawks in Sunday's Game 5.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov has had three good starts in a row, but Minnesota couldn't pull out the road win. The Wild are now facing elimination at home, but they won the first two games in Minnesota in this series.

Wild's Bryzgalov Gets Second Consecutive Win

News: Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 17-of-19 shots in Friday's win over Chicago to draw the second round playoff series to a 2-2 tie.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov was shaky in the Wild's first two games by allowing seven goals, but he's given up just two goals at home in the last two wins. With no sign of a return from Josh Harding or Darcy Kuemper from injury, Bryzgalov should start in goal the rest of the games in the series.

Bryzgalov Rewards Wild With Game 3 Blanking

News: Ilya Bryzgalov rewarded the Wild for their faith in him Tuesday, shutting out the Blackhawks on 19 shots to draw within 2-1 in the second-round series.
Analysis: Bryz has not been good at all in these playoffs, and a good amount of this performance can be chalked up to strong defense against Chicago's stars -- Patrick Kane had just one shot, Jonathan Toews two -- but you have to give the guy some credit. A postseason shutout is a postseason shutout. Now the question for Bryz's fantasy owners is whether the Wild can play with as much desperation in the remainder of the series as they did in Game 3.

Bryzgalov to Remain Starter For Wild

News: Ilya Bryzgalov will remain the starter in goal for the Wild in Game 3 against Chicago despite giving up three goals or more in each of his last six games, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Darcy Kuemper didn't travel with the Wild to Chicago and is likely out with a concussion (the Wild won't confirm the injury) and the Wild don't want to start John Curry. Josh Harding has been practicing with the Wild, but is an "extreme long shot" to play this series, head coach Mike Yeo. As a result, it looks like the Wild will stick with Ilya Bryzgalov.

Wild Turn To Bryzgalov For Game 2 On Sunday

News: Ilya Bryzgalov will be between the pipes for the Wild on Sunday in Game 2 against the Blackhawks and is hoping for a bounce back after Game 1, reports NHL.com. "My confidence is pretty good. On the one side I'm feeling good, on the other one not very good. I'm not happy with the results [Friday], what we got when I played. Obviously I want to change it."
Analysis: He's looking to bounce back after a queasy Game 1 where he allowed four goals on 21 shots, including three on just eight shots over the final two periods. We're not overly confident he can pull off an improvement, but miracles have apparently happened before. He is 1-3-1 with a 4.16 goals-against average and .821 save percentage in four games this postseason.

Third Period Struggles Doom Wild's Bryzgalov

News: Ilya Bryzgalov gave up four goals on just 21 shots in Friday's Game 1 loss to the Blackhawks.
Analysis: With Darcy Kuemper day-to-day with an upper-body injury, coach Mike Yeo was left with no choice but to give the Game 1 start to Ilya Bryzgalov, who was a disappointment despite not facing an overwhelming amount of shots. Kuemper is likely to be unavailable for Game 2 as well, making it imperative that Bryzgalov tightens things up if the Wild hope to even the series before returning to Minnesota.

Wild's Bryzgalov In Net Friday

News: Ilya Bryzgalov will start in net for the Wild in Game 1, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov will start in place of the injured Darcy Kuemper in Game 1, but Kuemper is considered day-to-day moving forward, meaning Game 1 could be the only action Bryzgalov sees in the series. The seriousness of Kuemper's injury is unknown, however, leaving the possibility of multiple starts for Bryzgalov in the series.

Wild Turn To Bryzgalov On Friday

News: Ilya Bryzgalov is expected to start Friday's game against Chicago.
Analysis: With Darcy Kuemper banged up, Ilya Bryzgalov is on track to start Friday's second-round series-opener against the Blackhawks, with John Curry a candidate to back him up.

Wild's Bryzgalov Comes Up Huge In Relief

News: Ilya Bryzgalov entered Wednesday's Game 7 in relief of the injured Darcy Kuemper midway through the third period, picking up the victory when Nino Niederreiter potted the game-winning tally in overtime.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov faced just one shot in his 13 minutes on the ice, but it was a huge one, as he used his shoulder to knock down a would-be goal. Though the Wild have yet to provide an update on Kuemper's status, there's a chance he suffered a concussion after colliding with the Avs' Matt Duchene in the second period. If that's indeed the case, there would seem to be a good possibility that Bryzgalov will be in the net for Game 1 of Minnesota's second-round series with the Blackhawks.

Bryzgalov Yanked As Wild Lose Game 2

News: Ilya Bryzgalov allowed three goals before being pulled from the crease midway through the second period of Saturday's 4-2 loss at Colorado.
Analysis: He had put together a solid regular season, but a 2-0 deficit in a seven-game series is a four-alarm emergency. There's a fair chance that the Minnesota coaching staff will give the Game 3 nod to Darcy Kuemper, who played well in relief Saturday.

WIld's Bryzgalov Loses Tight Contest

News: Ilya Bryzgalov made 26 saves on 31 shot attempts in an overtime loss to Colorado in Game 1 of the teams' playoff matchup Thursday. Paul Stastny beat him at 7:27 of overtime to give the Avs the win.
Analysis: The Wild have some banged-up goalies behind Bryz in Darcy Kuemper and Niklas Backstrom - neither suited up Thursday - who could become a consideration if they get healthier and Ilya Bryzgalov doesn't step up his game to keep the Wild in the series. He's now allowed 13 goals in his last three starts.

Wild Roll With Bryzgalov

News: Ilya Bryzgalov is slated to start Thursday's game against the Avs, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov heads into the postseason as the Wild's top netminder, with the report noting that coach Mike Yeo has yet to decide who will serve as Bryzgalov's backup for Thursday's contest.

Wild's Bryzgalov Gives Up Five Goals

News: Ilya Bryzgalov gave up five goals on 21 shots in Sunday's loss to Nashville.
Analysis: We wouldn't read too much into this poor outing, as the Wild were locked into their playoff position before the game and treated it more like a preseason game. Ilya Bryzgalov should be the Wild's primary goalie during the playoffs and get nearly every start. He's 7-1-3 with a 2.12 GAA and .910 save percentage as a starter since joining the Wild.

Wild Roll With Bryzgalov On Sunday

News: Ilya Bryzgalov will start Sunday's game against the Predators.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov, who will be making his 11th start for the Wild, heads into Sunday's game with a 1.78 GAA and .923 save percentage in 11 appearances overall in a Wild uniform to date.

Bryzgalov, Wild Make Playoffs With Victory

News: Ilya Bryzgalov stopped just 21 of 24 on Tuesday, but delivered a shootout win against the Bruins.
Analysis: The Wild clinched a playoff spot in the second intermission when Phoenix finished losing to Columbus, but adding a win to the mix certainly makes a psychological difference at minimum. Boston doesn't lose much, so despite the less-than-appetizing stat line, Ilya Bryzgalov's fantasy owners have to be thrilled with the win. But they shouldn't be surprised at this point -- he's come away victorious in five of his last six.

Wild Roll With Bryzgalov On Tuesday

News: Ilya Bryzgalov is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Bruins, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzgalov, who has recorded shutouts in his last two starts, has not allowed a goal in 142:15 worth of ice time, but he'll have his work cut out for him Tuesday against a Boston squad that is 16-1-2 over its last 19 outings.

Wild's Bryzgalov Blanks Jets

News: Ilya Bryzgalov stopped all 24 shots he faced in a shutout win over the Jets on Monday.
Analysis: That's back-to-back shutouts for Ilya Bryzgalov. He also has four wins in his last five starts, and he hasn't let in more than two goals in any of those games.

Wild's Bryzgalov To Start Monday

News: Ilya Bryzgalov will start in goal Monday at Winnipeg, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: It's also likely he'll start Tuesday, as it's not clear whether the Wild will give backup John Curry a start while Darcy Kuemper remains out with an upper-body injury.

Bryzgalov Wild Man With Shutout Win

News: Ilya Bryzgalov stopped all 20 shots he faced in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Penguins. It was his second shutout since joining the Wild.
Analysis: There were a couple of real doozies in there to rob James Neal and Lee Stempniak. Bryz will be the man between the pipes for as long as Darcy Kuemper is out with injury. And he could be there much longer if he continues to brick things up like this. Roll him.

Wild's Bryzgalov Starting Saturday

News: Ilya Bryzgalov will start in goal Saturday against the Penguins.
Analysis: With Darcy Kuemper (upper body) still ailing, the Wild will turn to Ilya Bryzgalov for a fourth consecutive start. Bryzgalov was stuck with a tough-luck loss Thursday against the Blackhawks, but he already has four wins since joining Minnesota.

Bryzgalov, Wild Take Shootout Loss

News: Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 24 of 26 Thursday in Chicago, but took the loss in a shootout.
Analysis: Despite the losing result, Bryz has put together three solid games in a row for the Wild, offering some stability to their injury-ravaged goaltending corps.

Wild Will Start Bryzgalov On Thursday

News: Ilya Bryzgalov is slated to start Thursday against the Blackhawks, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: With Darcy Kuemper (upper-body) unavailable Thursday, Ilya Bryzgalov will make his third straight start for the Wild. He's exceeded expectations in his previous two turns with wins over the Coyotes and Kings, but his weak ratios over the past couple of seasons don't bode well for his chances of continuing his winning ways.

Wild To Start Bryzgalov On Monday

News: Ilya Bryzgalov will start Monday's game against the Kings, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports
Analysis: That's back-to-back starts for Ilya Bryzgalov, who turned away 23 of 24 shots in Saturday's win over Phoenix.
