No one felt worse about the Flyers' 5-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning than the man who gave up five goals on just 16 shots: Ilya Bryzgalov.

"Outstanding," he snapped, when asked to evaluate his performance Tuesday night at the St. Pete Times Forum. "How I can describe it? What do you think? Lose 1-5. After f------ 2-4. After 0-6. How do you think I think about my game? What do you think?"

Bryzgalov was the obvious weak link in the Flyers' otherwise solid performance against the Lightning. Especially early on, the Flyers dominated, pouring shots in on Bolts goalie Mathiu Garon, tricking the Lightning into taking foolish penalties. But they just couldn't produce.

"It's frustrating," Jaromir Jagr said. "We didn't score goals on our chances we had in the first period, when we outshot them like 17-4. Just when we had chances, most of the time, we didn't score. It looked like nothing was going our way. Two weeks ago, everything was going our way. That's the way it is."

That's especially true of the first period. It took the Lightning nearly eight minutes to register a shot in the opening stanza – but it only took Bryzgalov a pair of shots to allow a goal. He gave up the game's first mark right off a faceoff to his left, when Bruno Gervais sent one past him from above the circle that appeared to deflect off Brayden Schenn and past the goal line.

Bryzgalov said he felt "physically good, mentally good," but he still looked shaky. Teammate Andrej Meszaros called that first Lightning goal a "lucky" one. Nonetheless, the Flyers gave up just four shots in the game's first 20 minutes.
