The Toronto Maple Leafs squeaked away with a 2-1 home shootout victory after being out-shot 50-28 in regulation. The Leafs seem to be getting used to finding a way to win games in which they are outplayed and out-shot, not a bad characteristic to have. Joffrey Lupul scored the shootout winner for Toronto tonight against a Washington Capitals club that was previously 5-1 in shootouts. Leafs goaltender James Reimer stole the show and seemed poised for a shutout until Alexander Ovechkin scored at the 15:50 mark of the third period. Reimer finished the game with 49 saves and now leads the NHL with a .947 save percentage. He is currently in a contract year. The Maple Leafs have won three of their last four games thanks to their goaltending from both Jonathan Bernier and James Reimer. Some say having a goaltending controversy is a bad thing, at the moment the city of Toronto will disagree.
