Hurricanes' James Reimer: Ambushed in third period
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reimer allowed four goals on 33 shots Monday in a 4-3 loss to Boston in Game 4.

Reimer had shut the Bruins down for the first 40-plus minutes before Boston exploded for four straight goals in a seven-minute stretch. It was a team-wide meltdown by the Hurricanes, who didn't register their first shot of the period until 1:27 remained. Despite the loss -- his first of these playoffs -- Reimer still owns a .934 save percentage in his three starts.

Hurricanes' James Reimer: Gets starting nod Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reimer will patrol the blue paint for Monday's Game 4 showdown with the Bruins, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Reimer has been outstanding in his two postseason starts so far, allowing just three goals on 73 shots in wins over the Rangers and Bruins. While Petr Mrazek has been strong as well -- .930 save percentage and 2.09 GAA this postseason -- Reimer has led the Hurricanes to their only win against Boston in this series.

Hurricanes' James Reimer: Stands tall in second playoff start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reimer stopped 33 of 35 shots in Thursday's 3-2 win over Boston in Game 2.

Reimer got the nod ahead of Game 1 starter Petr Mrazek and turned aside all 27 shots at even strength. The 32-year-old, who also started the clinching win in Carolina's qualifying series, owns a sparkling .959 save percentage in his two postseason appearances and seems the likely starter for Game 3 on Saturday.

Hurricanes' James Reimer: Surprise start for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reimer will patrol the blue paint for Thursday's Game 2 matchup against the Bruins, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

The 32-year-old started just one game for the Hurricanes in their opening-round victory over the Rangers, stopping 37 of 38 shots en route to a win. If Reimer can perform well again in Thursday's game, it could be anyone's crease for the remainder of the playoffs before someone gets the hot hand between he and Petr Mrazek.

Hurricanes' James Reimer: Stands tall to seal series sweep
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reimer stopped 37 of 38 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Rangers in Game 3.

Reimer was a wall in net, with only Chris Kreider's tally 12 seconds into the second period breaking through. The 32-year-old Reimer isn't expected to see the majority of the time in goal -- Petr Mrazek appears to be the preferred starter. Reimer had a 2.66 GAA and a .914 save percentage in 25 contests in 2019-20.

Hurricanes' James Reimer: Set for playoff start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reimer will start between the pipes for Tuesday's Game 3 matchup against the Rangers, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

The 32-year-old will make his first start of the season's restart after Petr Mrazek backstopped back-to-back wins for the Hurricanes. During the regular season, Reimer went 14-6-2 along with a 2.66 GAA and .914 save percentage across 25 games. Coach Rod Brind'Amour admitted he wants to keep both goalies fresh with short time between games, so Reimer will look to carry the team to a qualifying-round sweep Tuesday.

Hurricanes' James Reimer: Good to go once games return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reimer (lower body) is healthy and available once the NHL season resumes. Coach Rod Brind'Amour told reporters, "He was probably a week away, and Petr (Mrazek) was back, so we've got those guys back, which is good," Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

Reimer had been traveling with the team prior to the league stoppage, which was certainly a good sign. If the league resumes a portion of the regular season, the netminder could share the early workload with Mrazek, though in a "direct to playoffs" scenario, Reimer probably wouldn't see much ice the rest of the way.

Hurricanes' James Reimer: Traveling with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reimer (lower body) joined the Canes on the road for the last two games of their trip, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

Reimer's status versus Detroit and New Jersey on Tuesday and Thursday, respectively, remains up in the air, but the fact that he is with the team bodes well for his recovery. Even once cleared to play, the Manitoba native may be hard-pressed to pull starts away from Petr Mrazek (concussion), who is also nearing a return to action.

Hurricanes' James Reimer: Set to miss more time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reimer (lower body) isn't expected to suit up in Sunday's road clash against Pittsburgh, Michael Smith of the team's official site reports.

The 31-year-old has sat out the past five games with the lower-body issue after a collision that forced him to leave the game Feb. 22 against Toronto. With fellow netminder Petr Mrazek (concussion) also set to miss more time, Alex Nedeljkovic is expected to draw the start Sunday with Anton Forsberg set to back up.

Hurricanes' James Reimer: Expected to be out awhile
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Rod Brind'Amour said Reimer (lower body) is expected to be out awhile, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.

Reimer was injured after a collision in front of the net in the first period of Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs. Based on Brind'Amour's post-game comments, it seems like the 31-year-old could missed an extended amount of time. With Petr Mrazek (upper body) also hurt Saturday, the Hurricanes may have to call up Alex Nedeljkovic or Anton Forsberg from AHL Charlotte ahead of Tuesday's game against the Stars.

Hurricanes' James Reimer: Forced to leave game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reimer sustained a lower-body injury in Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs and will not return, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

Reimer was shaken up in a collision in front of the net during the first period. He was able to continue but eventually was forced to leave, replaced by Petr Mrazek. Because the game was tied when he departed, Reimer's record will be unaffected by Saturday's outcome.

Hurricanes' James Reimer: Tending twine Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reimer will get the road start Saturday versus the Maple Leafs, NHL.com's Dave McCarthy reports.

In the second game of back-to-back outings, Reimer will get the nod against the team that drafted him in 2006. The veteran netminder enters the game in a bit of a rough stretch, allowing three goals in four straight games while posting an .885 save percentage. However, he won each contest, and he may need similar offensive support, as Toronto ranks 10th with 3.39 goals per home game.

Hurricanes' James Reimer: Slips against Oilers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reimer made 20 saves in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Oilers.

Reimer still hasn't lost in regulation in the new year, going 6-0-2 in his last eight starts, and on the season he sports a 2.67 GAA and .914 save percentage.

Hurricanes' James Reimer: Tending twine at home
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reimer will draw the start for Sunday's home contest versus Edmonton, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

Reimer will guard the cage for the first time in the past two games, as he's gone 4-0-1 along with a 2.66 GAA and .918 save percentage in his past five starts. The 31-year-old has been outstanding against the Oilers in his career, going 7-2-2 along with a 2.67 GAA and .915 save percentage. He and the Hurricanes will catch a break Sunday, as Oilers star Connor McDavid (lower body) is out.

Hurricanes' James Reimer: Sloppy in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reimer gave up five goals on 38 shots in a 6-5 shootout win over the Golden Knights on Saturday.

Reimer has had better efforts than the one he put in Saturday, but he got the job done in the end. He's won four straight starts to improve to 14-6-1 with a 2.61 GAA and a .917 save percentage through 23 appearances this season. The Hurricanes wrap up their four-game road trip Tuesday in Dallas.

Hurricanes' James Reimer: Starting in Vegas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reimer will start Saturday's road contest versus the Golden Knights.

Reimer will go for his fourth straight win in this matchup, facing a Vegas team that's 4-5-1 in its last 10 games. Reimer has posted a .926 save percentage during his three-game win streak and holds decent value in this matchup with Vegas as a result.

Hurricanes' James Reimer: Wins third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reimer gave up three goals on 33 shots in a 5-3 win over the Coyotes on Thursday.

Reimer didn't start the game very well, but the Hurricanes turned the tide with a three-goal second period. The 31-year-old was able to hang on from there. Reimer improved to 13-6-1 with a 2.51 GAA and a .920 save percentage in 22 appearances. Right now, he's in better form than Petr Mrazek. Reimer might have the edge to get the start Saturday against the Golden Knights.

Hurricanes' James Reimer: Tabbed road starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reimer will guard the road cage for Thursday's matchup against the Coyotes, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.

The 31-year-old has been on a terrific run in his past five games, accumulating a 4-1-0 record to go along with a 1.91 GAA and .938 save percentage in that span. Reimer will draw a nice matchup against a Coyotes offense that ranks 22nd in the league in goals per game this campaign (2.73). Reimer and the Hurricanes draw their opponent at a great time, as Arizona is currently on a 2-5-3 streak in its past 10 games.

Hurricanes' James Reimer: Holds his own in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reimer gave up three goals on 35 shots in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win over the Canucks.

Reimer also saved two out of three shootout attempts to secure the win. The 31-year-old has now won four of his last five starts, with just 10 goals allowed in that span. He's at 12-6-1 with a 2.48 GAA and a .920 save percentage in 21 games. Reimer has earned a more even split of the starts lately, appearing in five of the Hurricanes' last 10 games, but Petr Mrazek should still be considered the No. 1 option for coach Rod Brind'Amour.

Hurricanes' James Reimer: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reimer will guard the goal during Sunday's home game versus the Canucks, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

Reimer was fantastic in January, posting a 3-0-1 record while registering an impressive 1.69 GAA and .944 save percentage in four appearances. The 31-year-old backstop will attempt to pick up his 12th win of the season in a tough home matchup against a hot Vancouver team that's won each of its last five games.
