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, )
Mon. Apr 14, 2014
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)
Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Bryzgalov is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Bruins, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Apr 7, 2014
News: Bryzgalov stopped all 24 shots he faced in a shutout win over the Jets on Monday. Impact: That's back-to-back shutouts for 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.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Apr 7, 2014
News: Bryzgalov will start in goal Monday at Winnipeg, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

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)
Sat. Apr 5, 2014
News: 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. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Apr 5, 2014
News: Bryzgalov will start in goal Saturday against the Penguins. Impact: With Darcy Kuemper (upper body) still ailing, the Wild will turn to Bryzgalov for a fourth consecutive start.

Thu. Apr 3, 2014
News: Bryzgalov stopped 24 of 26 Thursday in Chicago, but took the loss in a shootout. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )
