Flyers place Leighton on IR, recall Boucher

The Philadelphia Flyers placed goalie Michael Leighton on injured reserve with an upper-body injury and recalled Brian Boucher from Adirondack of the American Hockey League.

Leighton has appeared in only one game this season, giving up five goals on 26 shots in a loss to Tampa Bay.

Boucher is in his third stint with the Flyers, having led the team to the 2000 Eastern Conference Finals as a rookie and shared goaltending duties with Leighton on their run to the 2010 Stanley Cup Final.

Quote of the Day

It's a date that's been circled on my calendar, so it's kind of nice to have it here and get it over with (Thursday). This is a little bit of the closing of the book on the move. That's kind of how I'm looking at it.
