There were no one-liners, no wise cracks and no quotes at all coming from Ilya Bryzgalov leading into the Flyers' second-round playoff series with the New Jersey Devils.

Asked to do an interview on Friday, Bryzgalov refused.

He was low key and didn't do any talking on Saturday, either.

Regardless, his teammates figure Bryzgalov is in the right frame of mind for this Eastern Conference semi-final because he stopped 75 of 76 shots in three starts and one relief appearance against New Jersey this season.

"It's always reassuring when your goalie feels good against certain teams," said Flyers center Danny Briere. "Matchups are sometimes very key in the playoffs, depending on how you feel against certain opponents. Knowing that Bryz has played good all year, that's a big plus."
