The Leafs’ Goalie Tandem

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

Isn't it sweet when a summer plan comes together as originally drawn up?

When the Maple Leafs acquired Jonathan Bernier in June, it was with the hope that the competition with James Reimer would give Toronto the kind of 1-2 punch in net it hasn't had in years.

The NHL statistics Thursday morning listed Reimer sitting fourth among goalies with a .942 save percentage, Bernier just behind at .939, good for sixth overall.

Not bad.

"This is how we had envisioned it, that both guys would fight for the net, that they would get along, they'd be good teammates, they'd push themselves to different levels. So far, that's all occurred," Leafs GM Dave Nonis told ESPN.com Thursday morning. "So, we've been fortunate."
