Goalie Nods: Reimer appears headed for his first start

News and notes from around the blue paint…

Reimer looking to bounce back

For those who don’t remember how things went down the stretch for the Leafs goaltender last season, it wasn’t pretty. With Jonathan Bernier sidelined due to a knee injury, James Reimer made five consecutive starts losing all five games in regulation. It was part of a stretch, which saw the leafs lose eight consecutive games in regulation causing them to miss the playoffs for the eighth time in nine seasons. The Leafs won in just two of Reimer’s final 14 appearances.  It won’t get any easier for Reimer tonight as it appears Henrik Lundqvist is set to make his second start of the season.
