It’s Bruins’ Thomas vs. Flyers’ Boucher … at least to start

Thomas/By S. Bradley

PHILADELPHIA — As expected Tim Thomas led the Bruins onto the Wells Fargo Center ice for warm-ups, and Brian Boucher did the same for the Flyers.

So the two veterans will be your starting goaltenders for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series between the teams. Of course, for Philadelphia, there’s no telling who will finish. The Flyers have changed goalies in-game four of eight times in the playoffs, including Saturday’s Game 1 Boston win. Several Flyers players this morning responded to questions about the constant goalies changes by saying “that’s just our way.”

Here are the lines and D pairs as for warm-ups for the Bruins and Flyers:

Lucic-Krejci-Horton

Marchand-Bergeron-Recchi

Kelly-Peverley-Ryder

Paille-Campbell-Thornton

Chara-Seidenberg

Kaberle-McQuaid

Ference-Boychuk

Carcillo-Richards-Versteeg

Hartnell-Briere-Leino

Van Riemsdyk-Giroux-Zherdev

Shelley-Betts-Powe

Carle-Meszaros

Timonen-Coburn

O’Donnell-Syvret

So it looks like in addition to Danny Syvret replacing Chris Pronger, Jody Shelley will take over a fourth-line spot for Zac Rinaldo.
