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.
