Flyers G Bryzgalov out at least 1 game with chip fracture in right foot

PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov will miss at least one game with a chipped fracture in his right foot. Bryzgalov will not make the trip for Thursday's game at Toronto.

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren says the injury is not serious and Bryzgalov should return to the net this weekend.

He was injured in warm-ups when he was struck with a puck before Monday's 5-3 loss against Tampa Bay and was limping around the locker room. Bryzgalov had an MRI on Tuesday that revealed the injury.

Bryzgalov is 32-15-7 with six shutouts this season.
