Sergei Bobrovsky to start Game 4 for Flyers

Flyers coach Peter Laviolette [1] announced Friday at TD Garden that Sergei Bobrovsky will start for the team in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals vs. the Bruins. Boston leads the series, three games to none.

Rhode Island native Brian Boucher [2] has started the first three games of the series, dropping all three contests and allowing 11 games. He was pulled in favor of Bobrovsky in Games 1 and 3 and left Game 2 briefly with an injury concern. Bobrovsky has allowed three goals in 55:15 this series.

“We found ourselves down three here, and Bob has come off the bench a couple times and looked good,” Laviolette said in a pre-game briefing with the press. “We are getting him back in there tonight.”
