Flyers mum on goalies prior to Game 3 vs Sabres

NHL.com @NHL

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Boosh or Bob? Philadelphia Flyers coach Peter Laviolette calls it a fair question.

That doesn't mean he's willing to say which goalie - Brian Boucher or Sergei Bobrovsky - will start Game 3 of their first-round playoff series at Buffalo on Monday. Laviolette repeatedly stuck to his policy of not discussing potential lineup changes after practice Sunday.

Boucher is suddenly back in the conversation a day after he stopped 20 of 21 shots in a 5-4 win that evened the series at 1-1. He did that in relief of Bobrovsky, who was yanked after allowing three goals on seven shots.

It doesn't matter to the Sabres which of the two starts. They're more focused on becoming more disciplined after being penalized 15 times in the first two games.
