Reimer Backstops Canada To Win

The 2014 World Hockey Championship continued on Friday and it was a good day for Leafs netminder James Reimer as he stopped 21 of 22 shots in Canada’s 6-1 win over Italy. Reimer is 2-1 in three games with a 2.27 GAA.

With the win, Canada sits in first place in Group A ahead of Sunday’s showdown with Sweden (9:45am TSN).

Nazem Kadri and Morgan Rielly were both held off the scoresheet but Rielly did play 15:47 which was the highest ice-time for him in the tournament. Kadri played over 11 minutes.

The other Leaf in action on Friday, Jake Gardiner and the USA defeated Kazakhstan 4-3 in overtime. Gardiner didn’t record a point in 19 minutes of action. He has two points in five games so far. The USA plays Finland Sunday (9:45am TSN2) as the round-robin portion winds down with just two games remaining.

Nik Kulemin and Russia didn’t play Friday as they are back in action Saturday when they face Latvia. Kulemin has four points (three goals) in four games in the tournament.
