James Reimer G TOR 5 Days

Reimer made 33 saves through overtime and then turned away all shooters in the shootout to help lead the Leafs to a 4-3 win over the Kings on Sunday night.

It was Reimer's second start in 11 games ... and his second win. Jonathan Bernier remains the clear starter, but Optimus Reims is delivering the way a quality backup should. Match-up play is your best path forward with him.

Reimer will start Sunday against the Kings, David Alter of the Leafs' official site reports.

Reimer is expected to start in net against the Kings on Sunday, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.

Reimer has made 10 appearances this season with a combined .908 save percentage. It's unlikely that this role as the starter will continue, however, as fellow goalie Jonathan Bernier is boasting a better save percentage at .920 over 22 games this season.

Reimer (groin) was back on the ice for Saturday's morning skate, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.

It sounds like Reimer's removal from Friday's practice due to the groin ailment was mostly precautionary, as he'll be cleared to back up Jonathan Bernier for Saturday's tilt with the Red Wings. He's tentatively expected to make his return to the net for the second game of the Maple Leafs' back-to-back set Sunday versus the Kings.

Coach Randy Carlyle said Reimer tweaked his groin in Friday's practice but believes it's only a minor concern for the goalie, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.

Carlyle indicated that he is still tentatively planning to use both of his goalies for the Leafs' weekend back-to-back, though it looks like Reimer will make his turn on Sunday against the Kings. He'll likely serve as Bernier's backup for Saturday's game against the Red Wings, though the Leafs would obviously prefer not to have to use him.

Reimer stole Wednesday's game against Detroit with a 41-save performance in a 2-1 shootout win.

Man, he pulled this one out for his mates, who didn't find themselves in the offensive zone very often. He had zero rust on him, even after sitting and watching Jonathan Bernier get nine straight games. He's not likely to see much playing time, so that makes him most valuable as a handcuff to Bernier.

Reimer will start Wednesday's game against the Red Wings, TSN's Jonas Siegel reports.

Reimer will give regular goaltender Jonathan Bernier his first night off in a while and take the ice Wednesday night for the first time since Nov. 18. He will need to shake off the rust quickly facing a Detroit team that has won nine of its last 11 games entering Wednesday's contest.

Reimer is on track to start Wednesday's game against the Red Wings, TSN's Jonas Siegel reports.

Reimer has not officially been announced as Wednesday's starter, but with the Maple Leafs playing Tuesday and again a day later, it seems likely regular goaltender Jonathan Bernier will get the night off, and allow Reimer to start his first game since Nov. 18.

Reimer is expected to start Saturday's game against the Canucks, according to a report on Toronto's Sportsnet 590 The FAN.

It hasn't been confirmed, but it seems logical -- he hasn't seen action since mid-November. But the Orcas are looking to win their sixth game in seven. This is a risky play. The Leafs are surging, but Optimus Reims may be rusty. Use with caution.

Reimer allowed six goals on 25 shots in relief Tuesday in a horrible 9-2 loss to the Predators.

Both Reimer and starter Jonathan Bernier were left high and dry all night long -- the Leafs were flat out embarrassed on the night. None of this was on the goalies.
