Woonsocket’s Brian Boucher Injured in Bruins Game 5

BOSTON (AP) – Philadelphia Flyers goalie Brian Boucher

(BOO-shay) is out of Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinal

series against Boston because of an apparent knee injury.

Boucher skated off the ice favoring his left knee with 15:25

left in the second period. He was hurt when two players fell on him

while pursuing a loose puck in the crease.

He stayed on the ice, and the referee quickly waved to the

Flyers bench.

Boucher was replaced by Michael Leighton, who is making his

first career playoff appearance. He hadn't been in a game since

March 16.

Boucher has a 2.43 goals-against average in the playoffs. The

Flyers need a victory in Game 5 to stay alive in the best-of-seven

Eastern Conference semifinal series.
