Brian Boucher joins TNT’s NHL coverage as between-the-benches analyst

Brian Boucher will join TNT’s top line as its “between the benches” analyst and will be part of its future Stanley Cup coverage, The Post has learned.

In the process, Boucher will leave ESPN to reunite with his former NBC teammates, top play-by-player Kenny Albert and game analyst Eddie Olczyk.

TNT has regular season and playoff action, including a conference final every year.
