In Soviet Russia, goaltender get girl!
Not since From Russia with Love have we’ve seen two better looking Russian women than the wives of Ilya Bryzgalov and Sergei Bobrovsky. Kick save and a beauty, guys. Well done.
Sergei Bobrovsky spoke with Puck Daddy’s Dmitry Chesnokov (an Irish fellow, no doubt). Here are a few highlights. You can read the entire post here.
Were you surprised when the Flyers traded captain Mike Richards and Jeff Carter?
I heard the news when I was in Greece. I went online and exclaimed from the surprise. Carter and Richards are two big players and persons for Philadelphia. The backbone of the team. The captain and his assistant. I couldn't imagine they would both leave in one sweep.
Ilya Bryzgalov told Sovetsky Sport that this is "wolf's world. Especially for goaltenders. There are so many of them and there is only one place in goal."
I agree. Competition is very tough. No one wants to be number two… Of course we won't sharpen each other's skates. But healthy working relationship is the engine for progress.
We won’t sharpen each other’s skates. Awesome.
Sergei, in January you told me that marriage is a very serious decision. And that you were not ready for this step… And in half a year you had your wedding!
And what's to wait for? I am confident in the girl I chose. I gave it some thought and decided to get married.
Did the fact that Olga could not obtain a U.S. visa have any effect?
It was one of the reasons. She was never approved for a U.S. visa. People at the U.S. embassy thought that we did not have any relationship. The entire season Olga flew around Canada and we met in cities where Philadelphia played. But the U.S. denied her entry. Now we will submit documents again. But right now Olga is my official wife. I don't believe we will be denied again…
We documented one such rendezvous earlier this year… and some math on his post-romp starts.
