Canadiens' coach on hot seat

Unfortunately for Jacques Martin and the Montreal Canadiens, the Columbus Blue Jackets — the current remedy for whatever ails a team in need of a win — don’t visit the Bell Centre until the beginning of December.

Report: Reimer to miss at least one start

The Toronto Maple Leafs may not have No. 1 goaltender James Reimer for their game against the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday night.

TSN is reporting that Reimer, 23, will miss Monday’s showdown after suffering a minor neck injury in the early stages of Saturday’s 5-4 overtime win at Montreal.

He managed to finish the period before meeting with team doctors during the intermission, when it was then ruled that he wouldn’t finish the game.
