PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Jaromir Jagr scored two goals and Ilya Bryzgalov rebounded strong in net from a string of bad games to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 5-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night.

Bryzgalov needed an outing like this one to restore the confidence he said was shot after an 0-4-1 stretch with a 4.62 goals against average. He allowed four goals on 10 shots in relief in Philadelphia’s 9-8 loss to Winnipeg on Thursday.

Bryzgalov blamed himself for the defeat, calling it the low point of his career.

He was just fine against the Hurricanes. The lone goal he allowed wasn’t even his fault. Scott Hartnell slid headfirst into Bryzgalov in a rush for the puck, knocking the goalie off his feet and on his back, allowing Jussi Jokinen an open look for the tying goal in the second period.
