James Reimer would shake off this collision with Jarret Stoll to backstop the Leafs to victory over the Kings.

TORONTO SUN: James Reimer replaced an injured Jonathan Bernier (lower-body injury) to make 31 saves (shaking off a collision with Jarret Stoll in the process) to carry the Maple Leafs to a 3-2 victory, snapping the Kings eight-game win streak.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: No updates as to the severity of Bernier’s injury.

EDMONTON SUN: Four unanswered third period goals lifted the St. Louis Blues to a 6-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers.

VANCOUVER SUN: Canucks captain Henrik Sedin supported embattled head coach John Tortorella, whose future behind the Vancouver bench has become the topic of conjecture among Vancouver pundits and fans.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Plenty of panic among Canucks followers of late, but it remains to be seen if ownership feels the same.

MONTREAL GAZETTE: Canadiens coach Michel Therrien gave his players the day off following their 4-1 defeat at the hands of the Boston Bruins. As for Carey Price’s status, it’s believed his lower-body injury is tendinitis in one of his knees, which bodes well for his eventual return.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: The Habs recent woes aren’t just related to Price’s absence. They’re still struggling to find the back of the net.

OTTAWA SUN: Starting goalie Craig Anderson (shoulder) might not be ready to play when the Senators face off against the Canadiens on Saturday.

WINNIPEG SUN: Expect the Jets to do whatever it can to re-sign interim head coach Paul Maurice. It’s rumored he’s reluctant to continue coaching in Winnipeg beyond this season due to family commitments.

CALGARY SUN: Flames center Lance Bouma is earning praise for his willingness to block shots.

    Dreger tweeted this morning that it is nothing serious with Bernier. Randy said he knew of it before the start of the game. Reimer did a great job.
