When Jonathan Bernier's groin took a turn for the worse against his former Los Angeles Kings, two things became apparent; James Reimer was going to have a chance to bring his reputation back up (for various reasons, it didn't happen), and Drew MacIntyre was to have an opportunity to show that he's more than just a minor league goalie.

The reasons for why can be debated, but ultimately, MacIntyre only played once, coming in for Reimer during a loss to the New Jersey Devils. He stopped every shot, but ultimately, didn't get to have his first career NHL start. Unsurprisingly, Drew was a bit disappointed.

Ah yes, the 2007/08 Leafs season. The team started a spectacularly bad 0-7-1.

Tuesday night the Leafs allowed a staggering 23 shots in the first period as they went on to lose 5-3 to the Blues. There’s no question the Blues are a very good team but that makes it six straight losses for the stumbling Leafs and the Leafs Nation is angry my friends. As if that wasn’t ugly enough all six losses have come in regulation time.

James Reimer has finally been cast off to a far away land, also known as the bench! The Leafs' prayers have been answered! The season has been saved!  After all, the team plays better when he's on the ice! 

Somebody get me an eighteen wheeler. The final score was 5-3 St. Louis, and it's a miracle that it was that close.
