The Toronto Maple Leafs will host the Montreal Canadiens tonight at the Air Canada Centre. It will be the Leafs’ final home game before they venture out on a three-game Western road swing that will see them visit Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver. Here are a few notes going into tonight’s game:
Reimer to start
Tonight’s game against Montreal will be a big one for the Leafs; they have dropped two straight and now find themselves just one point inside of playoff position. Yet still, despite the fact that he allowed four goals to the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night, the Leafs will turn back to James Reimer in goal this evening.
This move comes as somewhat of a surprise given the Leafs’ current situation, but one must keep in mind that Reimer also made 35 saves against the Flyers. He has been stellar lately and has improved his statistics to a 2.77 goals against average and a .910 save percentage.
