James Reimer isn't making the decision about a starting goaltender easy for Toronto Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle.

Reimer, who led the Maple Leafs into the Stanley Cup Playoffs last season for the first time since 2004, is battling offseason acquisition Jonathan Bernier for the starting job. He didn't hurt his chances Saturday night by making 24 saves in a 3-1 victory against the Detroit Red Wings at Air Canada Centre.

"I tried to prove myself every day in practice and preparing myself and taking care of myself off the ice," Reimer said. "I feel like I've done the best that I can, and now it's up to Randy."

Josh Leivo scored twice and John-Michael Liles had the other goal for the Maple Leafs, who visit the Montreal Canadiens in their season-opener on Tuesday night.

"I think both of our goalies have played well," Carlyle said when asked about a starter. "I think that's probably to be our toughest decision."

Mitch Callahan had a third-period goal for the Red Wings, who open their season at home against the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday night.
