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

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
