Starter James Reimer has had a pretty great start to the season until he went down with an injury. Yesterday, the Leafs called up Garret Sparks to back-up Jonathan Bernier. Bernier started last night's game against the Washington Capitals. He had a pretty awful game, which led people to tweet things like this:
File this under JUST SAYIN'... Garret Sparks has a 1.90 GAA and a .938 SV% in 11 AHL games this season.— The Leafs Nation (@TLNdc) November 29, 2015

Well, we did it. The Sparks has been freed. The former 7th round pick will make his first NHL start tomorrow.
Garret Sparks will make his first NHL start tomorrow. Told after practice by Mike Babcock.— Jonas Siegel (@jonasTSN1050) November 29, 2015
That was easy.
