NEWARK, N.J. – Flyers goaltender Brian Boucher left tonight’s preseason game against the New Jersey Devils after just 11 minutes and 54 seconds of game action.
Boucher stopped two shots and allowed a goal to Dainius Zubrus before abruptly leaving with what Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren is calling a “lower body injury.”
Boucher may have tweaked his groin or hamstring when attempting to make a save, though it wasn't clear what was troubling him.
"They don't think it's too bad," coach John Stevens said after the game. "He seems to have a little bit of an issue there so we didn't want to push it ... I am sure we are not going to know exactly what it is until we get it looked at by our doctor."
