Reimer was pulled early in the second period of Wednesday's game against Columbus after allowing four goals on 20 shots. He was replaced by Jonathan Bernier.

The Leafs' gong show continued Wednesday, although the goals were certainly not all Reimer's fault. But it certainly was an ugly way to send off the 2014-15 season. Reimer was already scheduled to back-up Bernier in Saturday's season finale.

Reimer is slated to start Wednesday's game against the Blue Jackets, TSN's Mark Masters reports.

With Jonathan Bernier slated to start Saturday against Montreal, Reimer's last turn of the season will see him square off against the Blue Jackets, whose nine-game winning streak was snapped by Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Rangers.

Reimer was one of the game's stars Saturday after making 49 saves through regulation in a 2-1 shootout loss to Boston.

High and dry -- his mates certainly didn't give him much support all night long and he bailed them out again and again. He's actually 2-1 in his last three games and has allowed just five goals in that span. That's flat-out hot for a Leafs' goalie, but we're not convinced there's any value here.

Reimer will likely start Saturday's game in Boston, TSN's Mark Masters reports.

Jonathan Bernier will likely get the nod for Sunday's game against the Senators, as the Leafs continue to make use of both goalies. Neither has found much luck of late, but Reimer did have a fantastic outing his last time out, stopping 40-of-41 shots in a 3-1 win over the Lightning.

Reimer made 40 saves in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Lightning.

He stymied the Bolts' snipers and got the help of his goalposts, too. But a win is a win. Unfortunately, those wins come too few and far between to make him a viable fantasy option.

Reimer is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Lightning, Paul Hendrick of Leafs TV reports.

The Leafs will stick with Reimer, who made 22 saves in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Senators, an effort that helped Toronto end a seven-game losing skid.

Reimer made 22 saves in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Senators.

Wins have been few and far between for Optimus Reims (or Jonathan Bernier, for that matter) -- the Leafs have won two of their last 10. And his inflated GAA and save percentage make him nothing more than a desperation roll.

Reimer will be in the crease for Saturday's game against the Senators, Terry Koshan of the Ottawa Sun reports.

After coming on to stop all 11 of the shots he faced in relief of Jonathan Bernier in Thursday's loss to the Panthers, Reimer will be rewarded with the starting nod. Reimer has typically thrived against the Senators over his career (10-3-1, 2.33 GAA, .934 save percentage in 16 appearances), but many of those wins came when he was a member of at least semi-competitive Leafs squads. Needless to say, he doesn't find himself in nearly as favorable of a team context right now, and as such, shouldn't be trusted to deliver positive results.

Reimer allowed three goals on 18 shots before being replaced by Jonathan Bernier early in the second period of Saturday's loss to Ottawa.

Do not pass go. Do not collect $200. And whatever you do, do not activate a Toronto goalie. Seriously.

Reimer will start Saturday's game in Ottawa, TSN's Jonas Siegel reports.

Jonathan Bernier missed Friday's practice for purposes of rest, and Remier has now been confirmed as the starter for Saturday. No injury has been reported, so Bernier may be back in the crease for Monday's game against Minnesota.
