Leafs’ Reimer, Canadiens’ Price both given the hook

4 Comments

It’s been a difficult night for goalies across the National Hockey League on Saturday.

Toronto Maple Leafs goalie James Reimer, making his third consecutive start, was yanked from the net after allowing four goals on 19 shots against the Winnipeg Jets. Two of those goals came 37 seconds apart in the second period, as the Jets landed a three-goal lead at the time.

Jonathan Bernier came into the game for Toronto.

And in Montreal, Habs’ goalie Carey Price was pulled after giving up four goals on 26 shots. Not entirely his fault on this occasion. The reeling Canadiens were being outshot 26-3 by the Capitals at one point in the game, as Washington opened up a four-goal lead in a span of 10 minutes and 31 seconds in the second period of that game.

This comes after Columbus Blue Jackets puck stopper Sergei Bobrovsky was pulled in the second period against the Buffalo Sabres.
