Maple Leafs goalie James Reimer leaves in second period with left leg injury

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

Reimer was hurt during a scramble four minutes into the second period with Toronto up 3-1.

The 24-year-old stayed down for a few minutes before being helped to the locker-room clearly favouring his left leg.

Reimer, who is 5-3-0 this season, was replaced in the Toronto goal by Ben Scrivens.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
