The Maple Leafs practiced in Detroit on Monday as they get set to close out the five-game road trip against the Wings on Tuesday (7:30pm Sportsnet, FAN590).
Following the hour-long skate at Joe Louis Arena, head coach Randy Carlyle gave an update on Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier. The netminder left Thursday’s game against Los Angeles after the first period and didn’t dress in Sunday’s loss.
“Jonathan Bernier went for an MRI today and it was revealed that he has a low-grade groin strain,” Carlyle said. “We don’t believe it is week-to-week but rather day-to-day.”
Carlyle mentioned that Bernier first tweaked the injury during a morning skate in San Jose and after playing the first period against the Kings, had to remove himself from the game.
Bernier has a 25-16-7 record with a 2.64 goals-against average, a .925 save percentage and a shutout this season.
