News: The Minnesota Wild have switched goalies for Game 3 of their playoff series against the Colorado Avalanche, giving Darcy Kuemper the start instead of Ilya Bryzgalov. Impact: Coach Mike Yeo confirmed the change after the pre-game morning skate on Monday. Yeo pulled Bryzgalov for Kuemper midway through the second period on Saturday when the Wild fell behind 3-1. The Avalanche won the first two games of the series. (STATS, 1:14pm)

News: Bryzgalov allowed three goals before being pulled from the crease midway through the second period of Saturday's 4-2 loss at Colorado. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: 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. Impact: 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 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Bryzgalov is slated to start Thursday's game against the Avs, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Bryzgalov gave up five goals on 21 shots in Sunday's loss to Nashville. Impact: 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. 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Bryzgalov will start Sunday's game against the Predators. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Bryzgalov stopped just 21 of 24 on Tuesday, but delivered a shootout win against the Bruins. Impact: 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, 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Bryzgalov recorded his second consecutive shutout with 24 saves at Winnipeg on Monday. Impact: Bryzgalov, who already has three shutouts in 10 games for Minnesota, has posted an 0.98 goals-against average over his last five starts.(STATS, 5:35pm)
Sun. Apr 6, 2014
News: Bryzgalov stopped all 20 shots he faced as the Minnesota Wild beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-0 on Saturday night. Impact: Bryzgalov posted his second shutout since being acquired by the Wild on March 4. He was steady throughout and made a pair of outstanding saves in the second period to keep the shutout intact. He's 3-0-1 with a 1.22 goals-against average in his last four starts.(STATS, 1:54pm)
