James Reimer Called Up

From AM640's Jonas Siegel on Twitter:

@jonas640: Tyler Bozak and James Reimer called up.

I'm not surprised by Bozak, last night at MSG both Jiri Tlusty and Tyler Bozak were listed as healthy scratches for the Leafs. James Reimer's promotion means that something is happening with our goaltending situation. Since Joey Mac is already up for Gustavsson and can remain up as long as the Monster is injured it's unlikely this has anything to do with that. That leaves only two possibilities:

1. Siegel meant to say Bozak and Tlusty are up, going off last night's scratches. (Unlikely.)

2. Something's up with Vesa Toskala. (My guess is he's "injured".)

Edit: via the Toronto Star:

Marlies goalie James Reimer has been recalled and will dress as Joey MacDonald's backup tonight after starter Vesa Toskala apparently suffered an undisclosed injury during a 7-2 loss in New York last night.

Emphasis mine. Toskala suffered an "undisclosed injury" exactly at the end of a terrible game. He's spent and Burke is trying to figure out what to do with him. Moving on let's hope it doesn't take long for the defense to start looking good and then let's hope the offense follows.

Edit2: Viktor Stalberg is cleared to play and will be in the lineup tonight against Colorado.
