Flyers G Boucher replaces Leighton against Sabres

The Philadelphia Flyers are shuffling goalies again, with Brian

Boucher replacing Michael Leighton to start the second period of

Game 6 against the Buffalo Sabres.

With the Flyers facing elimination, Boucher took over with the

Sabres up 3-1 on Sunday and after Leighton allowed three goals on

seven shots in the first period. Buffalo leads the best-of-seven

series 3-2.

It marked the third time this series the Flyers have changed

goalies during a game. Leighton got the start on Sunday, two days

after replacing Boucher, who was yanked after allowing three goals

on 11 shots in Buffalo’s 4-3 overtime win.

Despite his struggles in Game 5, Boucher is 2-1 in the series,

including a 28-save performance in a 1-0 loss in Game 4.
