Ilya Bryzgalov slammed his stick off his right goalpost, then used two hands to whack it again, this time with more force atop the cross bar.

The Flyers had wiped out a 6-2 deficit to take an early third-period lead Thursday night. Then, their new $51 million goalie allowed two quick ones and his team again was trailing.

The Flyers rallied again, Bryzgalov faltered again, and the Winnipeg Jets wound up prevailing 9-8 in a wild and crazy shootout at the Wells Fargo Center.
