Bryzness Manager: Bryzgalov Breaks Flyers Shutout Streak Record in 3-2 Win

Bryzness Manager: Bryzgalov Breaks Flyers Shutout Streak Record in 3-2 Win

A season after the Flyers went all 82 games without a single shutout, their new netminder has broken the franchise's record for consecutive minutes without allowing a goal. Ilya Bryzgalov would eventually allow two goals in the Flyers' 3-2 win over the Islanders, but not before stretching his streak to 249:43, which bested John Vanbiesbrouck's previous mark set in 1999. It's also a personal best for Bryz, whose previous career best was 249:15, which he set in the 2006 playoffs with the Anaheim Ducks. 
Bryz wasn't the only player to top a career best. A pair of top-line forwards did as well. 
Zac Rinaldo opened the scoring for the Flyers, who held a lead in the first 10 minutes of a game for the first time in 26 games. The fourth line was working hard early, and Rinaldo appeared to be throwing the puck on net just to set up something for Max Talbot, who was trailing. Instead, the hard-angle shot caught Evgeni Nabokov by surprise and snuck past him on the short side. 
The Isles kept buzzing, and less than a minute later, it was a one-goal game. John Tavares scored his fifth goal in four games with more than five minutes on the clock. 
The defense steadied despite a wave of attack from the Islanders, and Bryz remained strong enough to hold the fort for another Flyers win. 
NotesJaromir Jagr was outstanding in this one, narrowly missing on a play where he just dominated his way through several Islanders. His presence on the top line is clearly a reason Giroux and Hartnell have had career years. 
Sean Couturier and the fourth line were strong overall as well. Coots led all forwards in ice time on the night, and just he has all season, played valuable late minutes. 
The defense played well through two periods, limiting the Isles to long shots and limited screening opportunities and second efforts. But they lapsed hard late, and the Isles very nearly came all the way back. Perfection wasn't going to last forever.

Wiggins' heave banks in, leads Timberwolves past Thunder
OKLAHOMA CITY -- Andrew Wiggins' 3-pointer from a few steps inside halfcourt banked in as time expired to give the Minnesota Timberwolves a 115-113 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday night.

Oklahoma City's Carmelo Anthony had hit a 3-pointer with 5.1 seconds left to give the Thunder the lead before the Timberwolves inbounded to Wiggins, who rushed up the court and got free with help from a crushing pick by Karl-Anthony Towns before pulling up for the winner.

Wiggins scored 27 points and Towns had 27 points and 12 rebounds for Minnesota (2-1).

Russell Westbrook scored 15 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter for the Thunder, who were coming off a loss at Utah on Saturday night. Anthony scored 23 points and Paul George scored 14 points on 6-for-20 shooting. Steven Adams had 17 points and 13 rebounds for the Thunder (see full recap).

Allen Crabbe scored 20 points, Nets beat Hawks
NEW YORK -- Allen Crabbe scored 20 points, DeMarre Carroll had 17 and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Atlanta Hawks 116-104 on Sunday.

Caris LeVert and D'Angelo Russell each had 16 points to help the Nets improve to 2-1 with their second straight victory.

Marco Belinelli had 19 points for Atlanta. The Hawks have lost two in a row to drop to 1-2.

Atlanta point guard Dennis Schroeder went down with an apparent ankle injury with 3:37 left and had to be helped off the court.

Brooklyn found a way to win once again without Jeremy Lin, who was lost for the season on opening night with a knee injury, holding off the Hawks after leading by 16 points late in the third (see full recap).
