Toronto Maple Leafs goalie James Reimer “has a headache,” following an early first-period collision with Josh Leivo, according to head coach Randy Carlyle.

Reimer left the game against the Carolina Hurricanes just 32 seconds into the first period.

“There is a history there, you have to be worry about it for sure,” said Carlyle, as per Mark Masters of TSN.

However, according to numerous members of the media in Toronto, it appears Carlyle thinks his goaltender will be at practice tomorrow.

“James came out to cover the puck & I couldn’t turn. I tried jumping over him, but my knee caught his head,” said Leivo, according to Masters.

Jonathan Bernier came in for Reimer, but was credited with the loss after allowing three goals – all in the third period – on 37 shots. The Leafs were defeated 3-2 by the visitors from Carolina.
