Judging from the morning skate, Reimer will get the nod Saturday night against the Senators over Jonathan Bernier.
Reimer is 8-1-1 with a 1.69 goals-against average and .949 save percentage in his career vs. Ottawa. Bernier has never faced the Senators.
Reimer earned the opening-night start based on his strong training camp and pre-season and gave up three goals on 35 shots in the season opener at the Montreal Canadiens. Bernier allowed one goal on 37 shots in his Leafs debut at the Philadelphia Flyers.
Right-winger Nikolai Kulemin was not on the ice for Toronto's morning skate at Air Canada Centre. Spencer Abbott, who was recalled Saturday morning, took line rushes in Kulemin's place.
Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
