Ilya Bryzgalov gives up a bad one

This shot should not reach the back of the net.

A storyline that's at times been overlooked in the second round of the playoffs is that thanks to injuries to Niklas Backstrom and Darcy Kuemper, as well as Josh Harding's battle with Multiple Scleroris, is that the Minnesota Wild are currently forced to dress and play their fourth-and fifth-string goalies.

Ilya Bryzgalov is the man they're leaning on between the pipes right now and he actually played quite well in a 4-0 shutout win over the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3.

But late in the first period of Game 4, perhaps Minnesota's best period of the series, Bryzgalov gave up the type of bad goal that has to drive teams crazy when he allowed this bad angle shot from Patrick Sharp to somehow get through his pads and barely trickle across the goal line

The Wild had a 1-0 lead at that point.
