Now, many are going to make the argument that both Flyers goaltenders, Ilya Bryzgalov and Sergei Bobrovsky have been streaky at best. The hot-and-cold play by both goalies has been spoken for by the Flyers defensive skaters who have taken the blame for allowing too many shots on either goalie.
That problem is hopefully patched up by the last-minute trades for defensemen Pavel Kubina and Nicklaus Grossman, both of which had team-leading defensive numbers for their previous clubs before being traded to Philly. So with the defense being set, hopefully, the goalies will have a better focus during the game.
With that issue now stated, back to the goalies themselves. Both Bryzgalov and Bobrovsky have had good seasons in net for Philly. Bryzgalov holds a 32-16 record in net and has a .908 save percentage. Bobrovsky also holds a winning record at 14-9 with a slightly inferior save percentage of .901.
These figures don't make these goalies the best in the league but it shows that the Flyers hold two competent players that can be interchangeable if one were to succumb to injury or start playing poorly.
The duality the Flyers possess at this position will prove invaluable come the playoffs if they make a title run. This being even more prevalent since Bryzgalov has only played in one game since suffering a chip fracture in his foot that caused him to miss more than a week of play.
