Travis of Throw The Snake fame hipped us to this Ilya Bryzgalov(notes) interview on 12 News in Phoenix, previewing the Phoenix Coyotes' first-round series with the Detroit Red Wings.

He's got a lot of "if you wanna be the best, you gotta beat the best" bravado at the start regarding the Wings and some Vezina Trophy talk near the end, but that's not why this video is posted here. You're about to watch one of those delightfully squirmy "hockey interview by non-hockey interviewers" segments (a shootout question at the start of the playoffs, for example); and, at around the 2:10 mark, the sight and sound of Bryz performing Haddaway's hit song "What Is Love" in a "Night At The Roxbury" tribute.

That right there may earn Bryzgalov more Vezina support than a 2.29 GAA.

Good to see playoff fever sweeping the local media, as even baseball is taking a back seat to the Mighty Yotes. We hope someday that Ilya Bryzgalov is a household name in Phoenix, to the point where it's not misspelled "Illya Brzgalov" on the 12 News video page.
