Injured Leafs Bernier and Ranger skate, but not guaranteed to play against Blues

TORONTO - Jonathan Bernier and Paul Ranger skated Monday, though that's far from a guarantee that the injured Maple Leaf players will be ready to face the Blues on Tuesday night.

Bernier has missed five straight games with a groin injury suffered March 13. Coach Randy Carlyle said Toronto's No. 1 goalie is making progress but couldn't say for sure that he's be available against St. Louis.

The same goes for defenceman Ranger, who has missed the past two with a neck injury. Ranger was hurt Wednesday on a hit from Alex Killorn of the Lightning.

A handful of other players were on the ice at Air Canada Centre the morning after the Leafs' loss at the New Jersey Devils, their fifth straight.

Quote of the Day

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.
