Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov doesn’t often get very angry with reporters.

But he let off some steam Thursday night after a 3-1 loss to the Ottawa Senators (see game recap).

His anger was directed at some media outlets who reported he had fallen asleep during a team meeting and was subsequently benched in favor of Steve Mason, who started Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Islanders.

Bryzgalov was asked whether the last couple of days have been hard on him.

“You know guys, to be honest, I don’t know where you get this information,” Bryzgalov replied. “Be honest, did you read yourself what you wrote? That’s embarrassing. You have to prove your sources.

“That was never happening. You became not professional journalist. It’s embarrassing, seriously. You’ve got to do your job better.

“I’m only pointing at guys who were involved in this because it’s really embarrassing and you have to be better. Step up, guys. Prove your information, find a reliable source.”
