Brian Boucher Leaves Game Two With Hand Injury

After taking a wrist shot to the glove in the middle of the second, Bian Boucher immediately favored the hand as if it caught him in a bad spot. After the Flyers went down to the other end, Boucher got a whistle and left the game at 11:01 of the second period.

Sergei Bobrovsky replaced him, the second time in two games Bobrovsky has come off the bench. It is also the fifth time in nine games the Flyers’ backup goalie has played this postseason.

On his way off the ice, Brian Boucher was caught by cameras showing his hand to the trainers. Interpret that as you will, but it doesn't look like he'll return. Johan Backlund went from sitting in the press box to dressed in the Flyers locker room, prepared to be the backup goalie on the bench for the rest of the game if Boucher cannot go.

More when word arrives.
