Boucher gets nod for Game 3; Nodl out

BUFFALO -- Flyers goalie Brian Boucher will start Game 3 in Buffalo, and Michael Leighton will be his backup.

Sergei Bobrovsky will be in the press box.

The series is tied at one game each.

Injured winger Andreas Nodl will be replaced by Nik Zherdev.

Buffalo will get a boost as defenseman Jordan Leopold returns from a broken hand. He is about a week ahead of schedule.

Also today, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren strongly denied an NBC report that Chris Pronger suffered a second break in his right hand a few weeks ago. Pronger took some wrist shots at today's practice in Buffalo but will not play.
