Flyers' G Bryzgalov Won't Talk to Media Day Before, Day of Games

Philadelphia goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov will not be available to members of the media the day before and the day of Flyer's games, according to reports from NBC Sports.

In response to the recent announcement, the Philadelphia chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers Association has filed a complaint which could mean fines for the Flyers organization for failing to give reporters adequate player access.

It also appears that this new Bryzaglov interview policy will be in effect during HBO’s 24/7 documentary leading up to the Winter Classic featuring the Rangers and the Flyers. Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia's Tim Panaccio tweets the no access rule will not go over well with HBO, as the 24/7 feature aims to showcase professional hockey with an unprecedented level of transparency.

Bryzgalov has a reputation for being brutally honest in his interviews. His most recent post-game interview showcased a seemingly dejected Bryzgalov, who claimed he had no answers for fans after his poor performance in a high-scoring 9-8 loss against the Winnipeg Jets. There is speculation that this interview led to the newly imposed no media policy for the goalie.

This season Bryzgalov has a 4-4-1 record with a 3.16 goals against average and an .880 save percentage.
