Found May 11, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
James Reimer did not appear intimidated in the first playoff experience of his NHL career, but through the first four games of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against the Boston Bruins, he had not made a monumental save that swung momentum in his team’s favor. That all changed in the second period of Friday’s game at TD Garden, as Reimer's acrobatic right toe stoned Boston’s...

James Reimer’s Unreal ‘Stick Shift’ Changes Tone of Series As Bruins Head to Toronto for Game 6 (Video)

The Bruins surged in the final 20 minutes of Game 5, but the Maple Leafs were able to hold on for dear life and escape TD Garden with a series-saving victory. Now, the venue shifts back to Toronto for a Sunday night showdown, where the Bruins will once again try to close out the pesky Maple Leafs. Jaromir Jagr had a great chance at knotting this one up during the frantic final minutes...

The Good, The Bad, and James Reimer Locks it Down, Again by   Bradshaw Furlong

My prediction for this series is officially bust (thankfully, of course). The Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Boston Bruins by a score of 2-1 (second game in a row) and force a seventh and deciding game tomorrow night, in Boston, as well as picking up their first playoff home win. After neither team scored for [...]

James Reimer Stonewalls Bruins As Maple Leafs, Red Wings Stave Off Elimination (Videos)

James Reimer gave Bruins fans flashbacks Friday night, as his save on Patrice Bergeron was straight out of Tim Thomas‘ playbook. With Bergeron bearing down on him, the Maple Leafs goalie threw out his right leg and just nicked the puck with his toe, sending it wide of the net. After being Toronto’s weak link thus far in the teams’ opening-round series, Reimer was stellar in...

Maple Leafs goalie James Reimer makes incredible save against Patrice Bergeron (Video)

There has been some pretty impressive saves so far in the 2013 NHL Playoffs but this save made by Toronto Maple Leafs goalie James Reimer has to rank among the best. Watch as Reimer makes an incredible toe save of a shot by Boston's Patrice Bergeron in Toronto's game five victory:

Tuukka Rask, James Reimer Both Raising Their Games As Both Teams Look for Any Advantage (Video)

What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object? Better yet, what happens when two immovable objects meet up in an NHL playoff game? That’s what the Bruins and Maple Leafs are dealing with on Sunday night, as Tuukka Rask and James Reimer continue to one-up each other at opposite ends of the ice. The two goalies are locked in to an extent rarely seen, but the game...

Game 7 It Is, Maple Leafs 2 Bruins 1

The Bruins made James Reimer look like the Vezina winner. (sounds familiar to last year with Braden Holtby)The Bruins and Maple Leafs went into the third period scoreless, before a Krejci turnover lead to a Maple Leafs rush and a shot by Nazem Kadri tipped by captain Dion Phaneuf and past Tuukka Rask. Minutes later, Bruins "favorite" Phil Kessel knocked home his third...

Dion Phaneuf, Phil Kessel Keeping Toronto’s Season Alive Among Best Images From Bruins’ Game 6 Loss (Photos)

Before this series, few people outside of Toronto and the Reimer household would have been able to pick James Reimer out of a crowd. Now the 25-year-old netminder is making himself an unwelcome household name in New England. Reimer came through with another stout effort in goal for the Maple Leafs on Sunday, stopping 29 of the 30 shots the Bruins put on goal. The Leafs’ 2-1 win...

April Reimer and Elisha Cuthbert’s misunderstood stare down

After Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneuf made a horrible pinch in the offensive zone in overtime, the Boston Bruins went down on an odd-man rush and Bruins forward David Krejci scored the game-winning goal on James Reimer.  The goal that Reimer let in was particularly weak, and the reaction from his wife April Reimer and Phaneuf’s fiance Elisha Cuthbert seemed like it...

Maple Leafs Daring to ‘Poke the Bear,’ But Have Yet to Pay Price for Physical Play (Video)

Bruins fans have heard it so many times: “Don’t poke the bear.” Still, that’s exactly what the Maple Leafs did in Game 5, including a couple of borderline hits on Zdeno Chara and Adam McQuaid. The Bruins usually thrive in those sorts of situations, but James Reimer seems determined not to let them. All in all, there’s plenty of drama still to play out in this series. NESN...

Videos- The Better Save Last Night?

James Reimer on Patrice Bergeron...     Or Jimmy Howard on Teemu Selanne... Continue reading "Videos- The Better Save Last Night?"

Richard Cloutier: Random Thoughts

I haven't done one of these in a while, so I figured what the hell. - Everyone is making a big stink about James Reimer's wife April giving Elisha Cuthbert the stink eye after Dion Phaneuf screwed up the Leafs game. My thoughts? "Damn, April Reimer is hotter looking that Elisha Cuthbert." I mean, Elisha is hot and all, but she always has that 'I just woke...

NHL Playoff Observations -- Friday

Just a few things that caught my eye: James Reimer, two; Roberto Luongo, zero. Playoff wins, that is -- isn't that what Leafs' fans thought they'd get out of a Bobby Lou trade? Any chance they eat crow? Where are you, Rick Nash? Brad Richards? And how much cash is tied up in you two stiffs? It's tough to dominate 19:59.58 of a period...

The Reimers And Phaneufs Will Still Be Breaking Holiday Bread

((HT: Sportsnet/CBC)) At least, the HQ doesn't think so... It was Phaneuf's attempted kill shot of the Bruins Nathan Horton which resulted in the game-winning goal in last night's Leafs loss in overtime to Boston. As is CBC's custom, the "Hockey Night in Canada" crew had a camera fixed on Leafs' goalie James Reimer's wife, April, and his...

Leafs survive, force Game 6 at home

Tyler Bozak and Clarke MacArthur scored and James Reimer stopped 43 shots Friday night to help the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Boston Bruins 2-1 and stay alive in their first-round playoff series. Game 6 is Sunday in Toronto, with the decisive seventh game back in Boston on Monday, if necessary. Boston has won both games in Toronto in the series and has not lost on the Leafs&...

NHL Playoff Observations -- Sunday

Just a few things that caught my eye: Optimus Reim. Reim Minister. I don't care if the nicknames are any good; I just know the goalie is. James Reimer has proved his detractors wrong and even Roberto Luongo has become a fan. Bobby Lou's tweet after the game? #REIM4SOCHI. Now that's funny. Ho hum, Henrik Lundqvist was the difference for the Rangers. Again...
