Leafs' Reimer suffers lower-body injury
Toronto Maple Leafs goalie James Reimer left Monday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers with an undisclosed injury to his left leg.

TORONTO – The Toronto Maple Leafs lost goaltender James Reimer to a lower-body injury during a 5-2 victory against the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday at the Air Canada Centre.

Reimer went down early in the second period and had to be helped from the ice. After the game, Leafs coach Randy Carlyle was hopeful that Reimer won't miss too much time.

"He is probably going to miss some time, but it won't be a long, drawn-out process as far as our assessment," Carlyle said. "There will be more tests tomorrow and we will have an update."

Reimer was credited with a win for his effort; he made 12 saves and allowed a goal in the 24 minutes he played. It was his third consecutive win and he improved to 6-3-0 this season.

Meanwhile, the Flyers were without forward Sean Couturier. A team representative confirmed that he was suffering from flu-like symptoms. The 20-year-old had not missed any of the Flyers' 12 games heading into Monday's action.

Quote of the Day

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
