It looked not long ago that James Reimer would be playing for anyone but the Maple Leafs in 2014-15. Tonight, however, he’ll be making his second straight start for Toronto in a game against Colorado at the ACC.
Reimer got the win Sunday at MSG, stopping 24 of 26 Rangers shots before leaving as a precautionary measure in the third period after a collision with Rangers forward Dominic Moore. The Leafs won the game, 6-3 — an important result for them after dropping their first two contests with Jonathan Bernier not playing particularly well between the pipes.
Now, Reimer’s hardly won back the job yet. He hasn’t even lasted a full game yet. But it’ll be interesting to see how all this plays out. When a team has two capable netminders, it usually is.
