New Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov celebrated a rite of passage: stopping at Ninth and Passyunk in South Philly for a cheesesteak.

He was steered into Geno's, where they let him get a taste of the grill work.

No doubt, he used English -- though he ordered a "Bryz (Whiz) without."

His $51 million contract translates to about 5.6 million Whiz steaks, with plenty left over for Freedom Fries.

(Fixed my math.)
