True, the breakaways and odd man rushes against the Leaves have been numerous for the last two seasons
Last season Reimer and Scrivens rose to the occasion (easier to do in a shortened season).
Bernier was saving their bacon for much of this season, but not so much post Olympics (.904).
Yours truly predicted last summer that he and Reimer would eventually break down under all that pressure.
I watched the first period of the Leaves game last night, Reimer was shaky from the get-go.
And by get-go I mean the pre-game warmup!
NOT kidding, you could see Jersey players licking their chops.
I was reading a Leaf message board and 90% of the fans were screaming for MacIntyre.
From the get-go.
Reimer was constantly caught out of position and beaten, was lucky to only give up one goal in the 1st
(a few Devils missed open nets.... including Jagr!
Apparently, after being pulled, he sat there on the bench with a huge shit-eating grin for the rest of the game.
Not sure what that was all about, but it prompted more twitter attacks on his wife...
Due to offensive language, many of them cannot be printed in this paper. One of the more offensive tweets suggested that April Reimer should stab her husband in the heart while he sleeps.
Personally, I think the Death Penalty is a tad excessive.
Personally, I like
Reimer (AND his wife)
... I seriously hope he plays more down the stretch.
