Wild vs. Phoenix Coyotes

Posted by: Michael Russo under Wild game coverage Updated: November 18, 2009 - 6:49 PM

Good evening from high above the Xcel ice.

If you were listening to Russo Radio, and even if you weren't, here's that Q&A with Gary Bettman that was talking about on the show from MacLean's. It's a good read.

In regular season, Brysgalov is 1-7-0 with 3.42 GAA and .891 SV% in 8 decisions vs. Wild. Lowest win pct (.125) of any goalie with 5 or more decisions, and highest GAA.

In regular season at Xcel Energy Center, is 0-5-0 with 4.02 GAA and .874 SV% in 5 decisions vs. Wild. Has placed in most games as visitor at Xcel Energy Center without having his team register at least one point (khabibulin is 0-5-1).
NOTE – Bryzgalov was 3-1-0 with a 2.09 GAA and a .929 SV% in four playoff appearances vs. Wild in 2007.

Enjoy the game.
