(SB Nation) - Ilya Bryzgalov will miss Thursday night's game between his Philadelphia Flyers and the Toronto Maple Leafs with what the team is calling a chip fracture in his right foot. General manager Paul Holmgren made the announcement on Tuesday afternoon, listing the goaltender's status as day-to-day following an MRI that revealed the injury.
Bryzgalov was seen shaking off a leg ailment during warmups prior to Monday night's loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning, and after that game reporters noticed a visible limp in the locker room. Bryzgalov played the entire game and there were no blatantly obvious signs that he was playing through an injury.
Sergei Bobrovsky, who hasn't played since March 11, will start while Bryzgalov is out of the lineup. Jason Bacashihua will be recalled for the game vs. Toronto.
The Flyers also announced an upper-body injury for defenseman Kimmo Timonen, although there's no word on his status for Thursday and beyond.
