As most Bryzgalov or Tellqvist owners saw I had Mikael Tellqvist pegged to start Sunday's contest. I was a bit surprised that Gretzky wouldn't/didn't go back with Telly since he's been playing well. I feel a bit better about my judgement now as after the game Gretzky noted Tellqvist had a lower-body injury.

"He had a minor injury and it was one of those things where we really couldn't take a chance of him getting hurt more," Gretzky said. "We made the decision today we were going to go with Bryzgalov. It's a simple as that."
