News and notes from around the crease…
Reimer gets a shot
The Leafs will get James Reimer some much-needed game action tonight against Carolina, as he’ll make his first start since allowing three goals on 12 shots against Detroit on Dec. 21.
Carolina hasn’t confirmed its starter yet, but Anton Khudobin seems likely to be in goal.
Hiller gets a rest
Andersen last played on Dec. 29 — allowing three goals on 23 shots in a loss to San Jose — but has been stellar this season overall, posting a 9-2-0 record with a 1.98 GAA and .927 save percentage.
Andersen will take on Marek Mazanec in the Preds goal.
Stars at Devils: Cory Schneider in for New Jersey. No word yet on a Dallas starter.
Bruins at Kings: No confirmations yet. Jonathan Quick likely for Kings.
