Flyers Goalie Kind of Quits Russian Team (Lockout Ending?)

Over the weekend, Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov left his post (posts?) at CSKA Moscow, for reasons that could either be really interesting or really mundane. On Sunday, a Russian journalist tweeted that Bryzgalov had said that he was quitting CSKA “because lockout is ending.” Bryzgalov, known for saying weird things, said it wasn’t true in a tweet that ended with a :-) emoticon. Another reporter said the Russian team had simply tired of the goalie and was cutting him. Now, it’s been reported that Bryzgalov is returning stateside simply to see a doctor about an upper-body injury, and will be back with CSKA soon. Or whatever. [USA Today]
