Ilya Bryzgalov again missed practice on Friday with the flu as call-up Jason Bacashihua worked practice with Sergei Bobrovsky.

Flyers coach Peter Laviolette said he would have no hesitation in using Bacashihua this weekend against the Rangers or Red Wings if he had to.

"I'd love the chance," Bacashihua said.

The 29-year-old has not played in an NHL game since 2006-07 when he was with the St. Louis Blues.
