Bryzgalov, who signed a nine-year, $51 million contract with the Flyers before last season, has been playing for CSKA Moscow during the NHL lockout. After a slow start, he has regrouped, lowering his goals-against average to 2.41 and raising his save percentage to .907 in 10 games.

Michael Leighton is the Flyers' backup goalie.
