Leaf Nation's worst nightmare may have occurred. Leaf savior James Reimer did not return for the second period against the Montreal Canadiens on tonight after run over by Brian Gionta in the first period. The only way the diminutive Gionta would give someone a headshot was if they were on their knees. Well that's exactly what happened on the play.
A very ordinary Jonas Gustavsson filled in for Reimer and gave up 3 goals on just 18 shots. This type of goaltending is not going to cut it if Reimer has to miss some games to an injury. No other goalie in the organization has played even one game in the NHL.
On a more positive note Mikhail Grabovski appears to be returning to form. He scored two goals against the Habs including the winner in overtime. Phil Kessel continued his hot streak with another goal and assist to hang onto the league scoring lead. He sripped the Canadiens player of the puck in front of Price and beat him high on the glove side.
