The Pittsburgh Penguins might just take a bad situation – Tomas Vokoun being out with a scary blood clot – and make it about as entertaining as possible. The team is reportedly interested in Ilya Bryzgalov Lisa Hillary reports.

(It seems prudent to put reportedly in bold in this case because well let’s just say that the Penguins-Flyers rivalry brings out the … feisty side in many people.)

Naturally even if the “interest” is there the Penguins might pass. They didn’t even bring the 33-year-old in on a professional tryout so this could be some really surface-level stuff.

Despite the circus that’s likely to follow Bryzgalov especially if he signs with Pittsburgh it wouldn’t be a bad idea. While Breezy struggled in Philadelphia he also put up fantastic numbers in Phoenix. Not bad for a backup who might not even command much of a contract.
