Flyers update: Pronger out again, Boucher likely in

The Flyers had an optional skate of their own Sunday morning in Voorhees, N.J. before coming to Buffalo. Injured defenseman Chris Pronger did not skate but did make the trip here. He's still not practicing with the team and will not play in Game Three. As each day passes with Pronger not practicing, you wonder if he's going to play in this series at all. The latest word is the team is holding out hope for Game Four on Wednesday. We'll see.

In goal, Sergei Bobrovsky was on the ice taking extra work Sunday after getting pulled in the first period Saturday. Brian Boucher took the day off, a sign that he's likely getting the start Monday. Boucher stopped 20 of 21 shots after coming in with the Flyers in a 3-2 hole.

Forward Andreas Nodl, limited to just 3:43 of ice time in Game Two due to an upper-body injury, may be out Monday and would be replaced by either healthy scratch Nikolay Zherdev or tough guy Jody Shelley, who has been out with a broken orbital bone.
