Boucher leaves in 2nd, back in 3rd
By James Murphy
PHILADELPHIA -- Flyers goalie Brian Boucher can’t buy any luck when he plays the Bruins.
Boucher was chased from Game 1 of this series in the second period after allowing five goals on 23 shots, then with 8:59 left in the second period of Game 2, the Rhode Island native left the game with an apparent hand injury and was replaced by Sergei Bobrovsky.
Boucher appeared to hurt his glove hand on a Johnny Boychuk shot, but was back in the net to start the third period.
Last season, Boucher injured his knee in Game 3 against the Bruins and never returned in the series. Michael Leighton replaced him and went on to lead the Flyers to their historic comeback from a 3-0 series deficit.
