    NEWARK, N.J. _ In a surprise move, Flyers coach Peter Laviolette announced he is giving the sizzling Ilya Bryzgalov a rest and that Sergei Bobrovsky will start Sunday night in New Jersey.

    Bryzgalov, who has shutouts in three of the last four games, had started 11 in a row. He was spectacular in the Flyers' 1-0 shootout win in Toronto on Saturday night.

    “We had talked about this, looking at the schedule and what’s coming up _ the back-to-back,” Laviolette said before the game. “Eleven in a row, and every other night pretty much. It’s a chance to get a fresh goaltender in there, and he’ll be ready to play.”

     Bobrovsky will be making his first start since Feb. 12, a 4-3 loss in Detroit. He was used in relief against Pittsburgh on Feb. 18.
