Friday's FTB: Two games in the next eleven days

The Leafs are about to take an early Christmas break.

Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

The Leafs have lost the first two games of their three game Central Division road trip. They have the night off tonight, and then face the St. Louis Blues on Saturday. From then through Monday December 14 The Leafs will play only one game. There is a giant hole in the schedule from December 9th through the 14th. This may also explain why Bernier took the conditioning stint with The Marlies; he's not actually missing many games. Bernier will make his Marlies debut tonight in lovely Rochester, a city that's "Made for Living"

Speaking of goalies, James Reimer bumped his sv% one notch over Carey Price last night to 0.935%. GBSR!
