James Reimer Cleared to Play Saturday

NHL

Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender James Reimer has been cleared to suit up for Saturday’s game against the Boston Bruins, SportsNet Canada reports.

Head coach Ron Wilson told reporters that Reimer would be the back up to Jonas Gustavsson.

Reimer suffered concussion-like symptoms after colliding with Montreal Canadiens forward Brian Gionta.  The goaltender has not played in a game since Oct. 22.

The Leafs are currently fifth in their conference but have won three of their previous four games.
