The Philadelphia Flyers finally introduced their new star goalie Ilya Bryzgalov today.The 31-year-old Russian talked to the Philly media, and give them his first impressions of the area.
Apparently — to the likely dismay of Philadelphians — the city reminds him of home.
“It’s lots of rain,” Bryzgalov said. “I’m a little [not] used to this weather, but it’s fun.”
“It reminds me of Russia a little bit, but it’s great being here, there are lots of trees.”
The Flyers hope Bryzgalov will solve the goaltending crisis that has plagued the franchise for decades.
