Devils chase Reimer early in second period

Toronto Maple Leafs v Detroit Red Wings

<> at Joe Louis Arena on March 18, 2014 in Detroit, Michigan.

It remains to be seen if James Reimer will lose his fifth game in a row on Sunday - the Toronto Maple Leafs could very well make a game of it against the New Jersey Devils - but his tough times continue either way.

The Devils scored three goals on 10 shots against Reimer tonight, chasing him a little less than two minutes into the second period.

It’s not just the last five games that have been difficult for the 26-year-old, either. Things have been rough for him since Jan. 23, as these game logs show. In short, he’s only won once in that span with six regulation losses and two non-decisions.

Some believe Reimer has been thrown under the bus while a team craters in front of him - just ask his agent - but performances like tonight’s will lead people to blame the young netminder. Especially if the Maple Leafs slide all the way out of the playoffs.
