From Toronto Star:
Reimer, making his second straight start and fourth consecutive game appearance, couldn’t thwart Alfredsson, though it would be a stretch to blame Toronto’s No. 2 goalie — de facto No. 1 in the injury absence of Jonathan Bernier — for the outcome. Yet coach Randy Carlyle came rather close in his post-game comments.
“He was OK. He was just OK.”
The colour rose on Reimer’s cheeks when that remark was passed on.
“He said I was just OK? I thought I was good. I don’t know if I was great and I would like to be great. I thought I made some good saves when I needed to. That third one, you want to make a big save for your team there. Unfortunately it wasn’t the case tonight.”
The intrigue mounts: Will Carlyle have the nerve to start Marlie call-up Drew MacIntyre on Wednesday night or go back again to the Reimer he so casually wrote off Tuesday night — assuming Bernier remains on the DL with his groin strain.
The plot thickens.
