Flyers’ Boucher returns to Game 2 with injury

Flyers goalie Brian Boucher returned for the start of the third

period of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against

Boston after leaving because of an injury.

Boucher appeared to hurt his left wrist and crouched in pain

midway through the second period of Monday night’s game. Sergei

Bobrovsky stopped six shots the rest of the period.

It was the fifth time in nine playoff games the Flyers made a

goalie switch. The score was 2-2 when Boucher left and when he

returned.

The Bruins lost defenseman Adam McQuaid in the first period

after he crashed headfirst into the boards. McQuaid tried to throw

an elbow at Mike Richards, but the Flyers captain sidestepped him,

and McQuaid went down in a heap. He was on the ice for several

minutes and needed help back to the locker room.
