James Reimer will backup Jonas Gustavsson on Saturday

James Reimer will not be an active participant in the big series against the Boston Bruins but he is getting close to a return for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Leafs head coach Ron Wilson said Tuesday that Reimer is expected to be the backup goaltender to Jonas Gustavsson on Saturday in the second of this week’s two games against the Bruins. After that, they will consider a possible start for Reimer, who has been out since Oct. 22 with a concussion.

Neither Reimer nor Wilson was willing to offer when that might be, although the Leafs have a busy stretch next week, with games Monday in New York against the Rangers followed by a home game Tuesday against the New Jersey Devils and a game Friday in Washington against the Capitals.

“We haven’t set a timetable yet, it just based on how I feel out there,” Reimer said after a spirited Leaf practice on Tuesday. “It’s just a matter of getting the timing back. A few more practices and we should be ready to go.”

Reimer sported a new plain black mask in Tuesday’s practice. He said he is trying a new design to see if it’s suitable in the wake of his injury but expects to wear his old mask when he returns to action. That leaves the new mask with the paint job celebrating his Optimus Reim nickname in limbo.

Awesome news. I figured he'd be available around the Boston home and home but I personally would save him until after those two games.

I'd like him to start in a situation with a lot less pressure, and against a team we haven't been beaten horribly by.

GREAT news! This means we're going to see him in of of the next 3 games! If Gus does well in Boston, you let him plat both games. If he falters you give Reimer the look in the 2nd game.

It's great to see the coaching staff handling a goalie well for a change. Unlike tossing Gustavsson in for his first game of the season against the Stanley Cup champs, they're giving Reimer a chance to find his groove against some weaker teams.

If that want to be so careful then why not send him down for a conditioning stintÉ

Does Reimer start in Boston if Gus lays an egg tomorrow?
