BOSTON -- As expected, Sergei Bobrovsky will start in net tonight when the Flyers take on the Boston Bruins in a win-or-go-home Game 4.
Despite not having played a full game since the Flyers' playoff opener against the Buffalo Sabres April 14, Bobrovsky has made relief appearances in each of the first three games of this Eastern Conference semifinal series.
Most recently, Bobrovsky came in in relief for Brian Boucher in the second period of Game 3, after Boucher allowed four goals to give the Bruins a 4-0 lead. The rookie goalie has given up three goals on the 24 Bruin shots he's faced.
Bob will start in net for us tonight, coach Peter Laviolette said. Brian came in and played really well for us, and came in and pinch hit for Bob early on and played really well for us. But we find ourselves down three here in Boston, and Bob came off the bench a couple times and looked good.
