PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – After playing well in relief of an ineffective Sergei Bobrovsky in Game #2, Brian Boucher (pictured) will get the start in net for the Flyers in Game #3 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal Playoff Series with the Sabres.
Boucher stopped 20 of 21 shots he faced Saturday as the Flyers evened the best-of-seven series at a game a piece with a 5-4 victory. Bobrovsky allowed three goals on seven shots in less than a period of work.

There are also reports that Michael Leighton, who spent much of the season with the AHL’s Adirondack Phantoms will actually serve as Boucher’s back-up tonight, moving Bobrovsky to third-string status.
Faceoff tonight in Buffalo is set for 7:00 pm.
