James Reimer has been cleared by doctors to play and is expected to back-up Jonas Gustavsson tonight in Boston. Reimer, when asked by the G&M's James Mirtle about his return, could hardly contain his happiness:
"I'm ecstatic," Reimer said. "You know, I love to play. This is what I love to do. To be able to get back in the lineup and even just back practising was great."
With Colby Armstrong nearing a return as well, it appears the Leafs are closing in on a mostly healthy roster. Hopefully the Leafs can run off a string of games without losing anyone else to IR.
