The sideshow that is the Philadelphia Flyers goaltending situation took a surprising twist Monday morning: according to multiple tweets, Brian Boucher will get the start in Game 3 with Michael Leighton getting the nod as the backup. Sergei Bobrovsky will be a healthy scratch.
Bobrovsky was yanked from Saturday afternoon’s contest after surrendering three goals on just seven shots. Boucher stopped 20 of 21 shots faced after taking over in the first period. Still somewhat of a surprising move here from Peter Laviolette and co. to drop their rookie netminder down to third on depth chart. The Flyers and Sabres have won a game a piece as the series shifts to Buffalo tonight.
