29 year old Illya Bryzgalov of the Phoenix Coyotes was named the first star of the week in the NHL. The Coyotes were not expected to have a good season but Bryzgalov is proving the exact opposite of what the media was saying. He has posted a 5 win, 1 loss record with an amazing 1.14 goals against average, a .953 save percentage, and 2 shutouts. The Coyotes might end up having a better season than expected thanks to star goalie Illya Bryzgalov.
