Flyers goalie Brian Boucher was pulled at 15:36 in the first period of tonight's Game 5 between Buffalo and Philadelphia.

Coach Peter Laviolette pulled the plug after Boucher allowed three goals on 11 shots, the first two of which were on bad-angle shots by Tyler Ennis and Thomas Vanek.

Michael Leighton, who helped lead the Flyers to the Stanley Cup finals last season, came in as Boucher's replacement.

The best-of-seven series is tied at 2.

Scott Burnside will have more on this and other highlights after the game, but in the meantime, you can follow his Twitter feed here.
