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

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
