TORONTO -- Toronto Maple Leafs goalie Jonathan Bernier left the game Thursday against the Boston Bruins midway through the third period with a lower-body injury.

He will have an MRI on Friday, coach Randy Carlyle said.

After colliding with Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron at 8:22 of the period, Bernier dropped to the ice on his knees hunched over and needed help from a trainer to leave, favoring his left leg. James Reimer came into the game.

Bernier made 25 saves in his fifth game since returning from a strained groin sustained March 13 against the Los Angeles Kings.

Toronto led 3-2 at the time and won 4-3 in overtime.

Quote of the Day

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
