With Brian Boucher confirmed to be returning as the backup goalie for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals, the Flyers are back at full strength at just the right time. Of course, if all goes well, Boucher will never see a minute of ice time but it's good to have a dependable goalie ready to step in should Michael Leighton succumb to an injury.
With Jeff Carter rounding into form and Ian Laperriere showing no recurring issues with concussions, the Flyers might be the healthiest they have been all season. Given how good the Blackhawks are from top to bottom, the Flyers are going to need all hands on deck and ready to contribute. Enjoy Stanley Cup Finals Game One, folks, and relish every minute of the Flyers playing for the Cup.
