PHILADELPHIA -- After leaving the game for the final nine minutes of the second period, Brian Boucher was back in the Philadelphia Flyers' net to start the third period.
Boucher appeared to injure his left hand or arm stopping a Johnny Boychuk shot with 9:22 left in the second period, and was replaced by Sergei Bobrovsky with 8:59 left in the period.
Bobrovsky stopped all six shots he faced.
In nine Stanley Cup Playoff games, the Flyers have changed goalies mid-game five times. However, this was the first time it wasn't for performance-related reasons. Boucher stopped 21 of 23 shots before being injured.
