James Reimer G TOR 5 Days

Reimer finished with 22 saves in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to Ottawa.

He allowed three first-period goals, but then closed the door until late in the third. The Leafs' goalies are in tough with the team in the state its currently in. We have a hard time recommended either in this situation.

Reimer will be in the net for Wednesday's outing against the Senators, Sportsnet 590 The FAN reports.

Reimer's entry into the lineup ahead of No. 1 goalie Jonathan Bernier doesn't come as a huge surprise given his outstanding success throughout his career against the Senators. He owns a 10-2-1 mark, 2.05 GAA and .942 save percentage across 14 appearances, numbers that far outpace what he's typically posted during his five seasons with the Leafs.

Reimer turned away all 18 shots he faced after entering in the opening minute of the second period in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Hurricanes.

Starter Jonathan Bernier was lit up, but Reimer used the relief appearance to turn in his second impressive performance in a row. That said, he still won't get many starts, and with a 3.27 GAA he's not a particularly reliable option between the pipes.

Reimer was excellent in turning aside 39 of 41 shots, but ended up on the losing end Thursday against the Sharks.

Two early San Jose goals proved too much for the Leafs to overcome even though Reimer locked things down after that. It's a sharp outing, yeah, but it's also Reimer's fifth consecutive loss.

Reimer will start in net Thursday against the Sharks, Jonas Siegel of TSN 1050 reports.

Reimer will receive the start Thursday on the second night of back-to-back games. He made 35 saves despite taking a 5-1 loss in his last outing, but will look for better results Thursday after a long layoff between starts.

Reimer made 35 saves in a 5-1 loss to the Jets on Saturday night.

The loss wasn't his -- he kept his mates in the game when they really shouldn't have been. The Leafs were at the end of a seven-game road trip in which they won just twice, so fatigue was obviously a factor.

Reimer will start Saturday against the Jets, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.

As expected, Reimer will get the call Saturday after Jonathan Bernier took the loss to Minnesota in the front half of a back-to-back set.

Reimer is likely to make the start in goal Saturday versus the Jets, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.

With Jonathan Bernier confirmed as the starter for Friday's game against the Wild, expect coach Randy Carlyle to follow his usual pattern of leaning on his backup goalie for the other game of the back-to-back set. Reimer has performed rather inconsistently this season, owning a 6-6-0 record and poor ratios (3.39 GAA, .905 save percentage) over his 15 appearances.

Reimer made 38 saves against Tampa Bay on Monday night, but like Sunday, he surrendered a two-goal lead and Toronto lost 3-2.

Like Sunday, he also made some nifty saves, but the odds were stacked against him with such a powerful lineup bearing down on him. There is no word on Jonathan Bernier's return from illness, so expect Reimer to protect the twine tent until Bernier gets back.

Reimer will be between the pipes for Monday's game against the Lightning, TSN's Jonas Siegel reports.

Reimer will start for the second consecutive game as regular goaltender Jonathan Bernier sits out again with an illness. He will face a stiff test Monday from a Tampa Bay squad that currently sits second in the NHL with 3.19 goals per game.
