Reimer out at least one week with MCL strain

The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Tuesday that goaltender James Reimer sustained a mild MCL strain during the second period of Monday night's game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Reimer is expected to be out for a minimum of one week.

Ben Scrivens replaced Reimer in the 5-2 win and stopped 32 of 33 shots.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
