sieve goalie Brian Boucher as their starting goalie for game two of the Eastern Conference Semifinal. That could be good news for the Boston Bruins.
PHILADELPHIA — Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette left no doubt about who his starting goaltender will be tonight against the Bruins in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series at the Wells Fargo Center.
Brian Boucher, the Game 1 starter who was pulled in the second period of Boston’s 7-3 win, will get another chance to solve Boston’s offense.
Also, according to the Boston Herald Flyers
Thug Defenseman Chris Pronger is a scratch for game two and will not play tonight. I guess the Bruins forwards don’t have to worry about being hacked by Pronger the lumberjack.
PHILADELPHIA — Late word from the Flyers camp that cornerstone defenseman Chris Pronger will not play tonight, due to a new, undisclosed injury incurred in Saturday’s series-opener. There was no confirmation on his ailment, but it was believed to be in the lower back, upper leg or perhaps both. Pronger returned from a broken hand to play the final two games of the Flyers’ first-round series vs. Buffalo, and played 19:45 in Game 1 against the B’s.
