Jonathan Bernier leaves Maple Leafs' game vs. Bruins due to injury

TORONTO - Jonathan Bernier left the Toronto Maple Leafs' game against the Boston Bruins on Thursday night with a lower-body injury.

Bernier's left knee appeared to bend awkwardly after Paul Ranger pushed Bruins centre Patrice Bergeron into him. The Leafs' starting goaltender remained down on the ice in pain before he was forced to leave the game.

Backup James Reimer began stretching immediately when Bernier was injured and entered at the 7:22 mark of the third period.

Bernier missed five straight games in March with a groin injury. This was his fifth straight game since returning from that absence.

The Leafs led the Bruins 3-2 when Bernier left the game. He stopped 25 of the 27 shots he faced.

Quote of the Day

I mean, any of those 14 teams (in the lottery) it would have been an absolute honor. If I am selected by Edmonton it will be amazing, a dream come true. They have a lot of amazing young players there.
