The Toronto Maple Leafs list James Reimer as their No. 1 goalie but newly acquired netminder Jonathan Bernier makes no attempts to camouflage his objective.

"I’ve been waiting. . .to get my chance (to start)," said Bernier, traded to the Leafs in June for Matt Frattin, Ben Scrivens and a conditional draft pick. Bernier showed what he could do in his limited appearances with the Los Angeles Kings, but admits to being frustrated at getting stuck behind Jonathan Quick. "It was very frustrating. That’s hockey," said Bernier. "When you get your chance, you’ve got to take it. That’s what happened with Jonathan Quick. He was there before me. Never really gave me a chance to prove what I could do. But he’s one of the best goalies in the NHL. It was hard for me after that to try to steal the job." In Toronto, it'll be different. Reimer performed admirably in the role in 2013, bouncing back from an injury-filled 2011-12 campaign that brought a legion of doubters. Reimer has one year left on a deal at $1.8 million, after which he will become a restricted free agent. Bernier got a two-year deal at $2.9 million a year.

Ryan Spooner sustained a right groin adductor tear on Sunday.

Spooner is expected to need four-to-six weeks to recover. In other words, don't expect him back until mid-November at the earliest. He has an assist in five games with the Bruins this season.

David Schlemko underwent surgery to remove a bone fragment in his hand.

Schlemko will need three-to-four weeks to recover. The timing of his injury is particularly unfortunate given that the 30-year-old defenseman had just been recalled on Saturday.

Al Montoya will be the Canadiens' starter on Wednesday.

That will provide Carey Price, who has struggled out of the gate, his first game off of the campaign. Montoya had a 2.67 GAA and .912 save percentage in 19 contests this season.

Adin Hill will probably start again on Thursday.

Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet said that Hill would likely start, but didn't confirm it. Hill did stop 31 of 33 shots on Tuesday, so he played well enough to earn another start. Plus Antti Raanta hasn't resumed skating yet, so he probably won't be an option Thursday night.

Jonathan Bernier is projected to be Colorado's starter on Thursday.

Bernier has a 1-1-0 record, 2.52 GAA, and .912 save percentage in two starts. He's a solid backup goaltender, but Semyon Varlamov is the clear number one in Colorado.

Connor Hellebuyck will be the Jets' starting goaltender on Friday.

Winnipeg is in a stretch of just two games over the span of 11 days, so it's important to get Hellebuyck a start after Steve Mason played between the pipes on Tuesday. Otherwise Hellebuyck would be going nearly two weeks between appearances.
Oct 18 - 3:39 PM

Jaroslav Halak will start for the Islanders on Thursday.

Halak will be facing the rival New York Rangers. He has a 1-2-0 record, 2.62 GAA, and .907 save percentage in four contests this season.

Alexander Steen (hand) has been taken off the injured reserve list.

Steen declared himself ready to return, so look for him to play on Wednesday. This will be Steen's first game of the campaign after suffering a broken hand during a preseason contest. He had 16 goals and 51 points in 76 contests last season.

Tuukka Rask left Wednesday's practice after Anders Bjork collided with him in front of the net.

Rask had to be helped off the ice, which is obviously concerning. To make matters worse, Rask wasn't able to return before the conclusion of the Bruins' morning skate. Boston hasn't spoken yet about Rask's status outside of the initial announcement that he had to leave the practice, but obviously missing him for any significant amount of time would be a significant problem for the Bruins.

Wayne Simmonds sustained a lower-body injury during Tuesday's game.

Simmonds left midway through the third period. The Flyers termed his absence as precautionary, but he'll be reevaluated on Wednesday. Consider him day-to-day for now. He has gotten off to a hot start with five goals, seven points, and seven penalty minutes in six contests.
Oct 18 - 5:23 AM

Roman Josi picked up a goal and an assist in Nashville's 4-1 win over Colorado on Tuesday night.

This was Josi's first game back in the lineup after he missed three games with a lower-body injury. His power play goal at the 13:30 mark of the second period made it 2-1 for Nashville. Josi also helped set up Colton Sissons' goal later on in the period to make it 3-1 for the Predators. Josi finished the game with a plus-1 rating, two penalty minutes, seven shots on goal and one hit in 22:30 of ice time. These were Josi's first two points of the 2017-18 season.
