I hate waking up early. You see, I live on the internet in the year 2014, which means live hockey is a thing that is being discussed until at least 1AM. I'm brainstorming ideas, I'm trying to break my high score in Flappy Bird... I do a little bit of a lot, get very distracted, and getting to bed at 3AM is a job well done. So when the Marlies decide to play a game early enough to serve breakfast in the media room... it's a long day. Red Bull is consumed. I can only imagine how it must be for the players.
With that said, it didn't look like the early morning threw them off much. Toronto and Rochester combined for 90 shots, and the Marlies won 2-1 in front of about 8000 school children.

SIGNING ALERT! SIGNING ALERT! SIGNING ALERT!
The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed 2009 5th-round draft pick Eric Knodel to a one-year entry level contract. He will report to the Toronto Marlies immediately.

Look - if you get a chance to use this video in a post, you use this video in a post, Ok?
Seriously though, James Reimer has commented on the big dumb idiots who said big dumb idiot things to his wife April.
Reimer: If you are disappointed in the way I play, come to me, tell me. Don't go to somebody's wife, especially hiding behind a phone.— David Alter (@DavidAlter590) March 25, 2014

This was the scene the last time the Leafs faced the St. Louis Blues. James Reimer was shelled for three goals on fifteen shots in the first period alone before being replaced by Jonathan Bernier.
It looks like Bernier will be replacing Reimer against the Blues again, only this time it will be at puck-drop.

Goaltenders, by nature, are easy targets. They're the last ones to make a mistake before the puck goes in, and when they're doing their job at their absolute best, the results are boring and forgettable until you look at the scoresheet at the final buzzer.
I'm going to keep this short, but sweet. Nobody is going to deny that James Reimer is struggling a bit. His numbers since the Los Angeles game look like his post-concussion numbers in 2011/12, and he's let in a couple of weak goals over the past few days. But to act like the's the only fault, the reason the Leafs are losing. Is close minded. Quite simply; the Leafs are under performing so badly, that they'd need hall of fame quality goaltending to weather this tide.
