LGD - Game 74: Marching In

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.

Dry March and SV% Expectations

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.

Leafs Postgame: Sold Our Goals To The Devil

I'm not even worried about this game. It was a bad game. There were some really questionable goals. The Leafs have lost five straight. If a couple of teams that have games in hand win a single one of them, they're out of a playoff spot. David Clarkson has two points in his past 24 games, and James Reimer's stock is crashing faster than Enron's.

But please, just let Phil Kessel be okay. That's all I ask. That was a rough helmet hit to the head, and while he came back on seconds after the ref held him back (of course he did, it's the Leafs), he didn't seem in great shape after impact. That play would be an awful way to finally miss a game with the team, having played in 362 straight since his debut. Let's talk about the game, though.
