Morning skate notes: James Reimer starting for Leafs
|12.03.11 at 11:42 am ET|
The Bruins got back on the ice Saturday morning in anticipation for the second game of a home-and-home with the Maple Leafs. Boston currently leads Toronto by one point in the Northeast division after Wednesday’s 6-3 victory at Air Canada Centre.
All of the regulars were on the ice for the Bruins Saturday morning, with the exception of defenseman Steven Kampfer and forward Jordan Caron. Both players were sent to Providence Wednesday so they could get some game action, and both players played in Friday’s 4-1 loss to the Connecticut Whale. Caron had an assist, while Kampfer went without a point and had an even rating.
One are that remains a bit of a question mark for Saturday is the Leafs’ goaltending situation. Jonas Gustavsson is slated to be the starter, but No. 1 netminder James Reimer has been cleared to play.
[UPDATE: 12:32 pm] Both Reimer and coach Ron Wilson told reporters that it will indeed be Reimer in net. The Leafs have not lost a game in regulation this season with Reimer in net (4-0-1).
