Coincidence, or Contingency Plan?

After yesterday's loss against the Columbus Blue Jackets, there was maybe one thing that everybody could agree on; James Reimer had a very solid outing. In his first start since January 25th, Reimer made 30 saves on 32 shots, and neither goal against was particularly "weak". It was a start that the 1B of the Leafs' Goaltending Operation absolutely needed to have for the sake of getting more opportunities to play.

But what if I said that those opportunities could come from another team? What if I said the organization has, maybe unintentionally, a setup in place that has them prepared in case of a goalie trade tomorrow? It's a crazy thought, but run with me here.

This team does know that the Olympic Break is over, right? I mean, the first line is still chugging away as if they never missed a beat (because they didn't) but the Leafs entered tonight having lost their first two games since returning. The opening twenty and final five minutes displayed a team that looked ready to snap the trend. The rest of the game displayed something that was worse than the opposite, which lead to a 2-1 loss.

Today is Canadian Armed Forces day at Ricoh Coliseum, which means hockey, soliders, camo jerseys, and... Jerry D'Amigo Bobbleheads? I'm not 100% sure where the last one ties into the others, but the fans certainly weren't complaining. Most important was the hockey though, and the Toronto Marlies took on the Lake Erie Monsters in their last game of the weekend, and homestead. They did so by ending it all on a high note, with three third period goals being the difference in a 5-2 victory.
