PHILADELPHIA - 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 defenceman 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.
