TORONTO -- In light of Jonathan Berniers injury, goaltender Drew MacIntyre is rejoining the Toronto Maple Leafs, his agent said in an email. [url=https://www.cheapducks.com/357c-jason-marshall-jersey-ducks.html]Jason Marshall Jersey[/url] . MacIntyre, 30, had been back with the AHLs Toronto Marlies since Bernier returned from a five-game absence with a groin injury March 25. Bernier left Thursday nights 4-3 overtime win over the Boston Bruins with what looked like a left leg or knee injury. Asked if Bernier re-aggravated his groin problem, coach Randy Carlyle called it only a "lower-body" injury and said the 25-year-old goaltender had an MRI scheduled. James Reimer relieved Bernier and stopped 10-of-11 shots he faced against Boston. Hes expected to shoulder the load for the rest of the season, beginning Saturday against the Winnipeg Jets, if Bernier is out. MacIntyre made one appearance in March for the Leafs but has never started an NHL game. His agent, Thane Campbell, confirmed MacIntyre was returning to Toronto. It was unclear if hed be back in time for the Leafs practice Friday morning. The Marlies were in Utica, N.Y. for a Friday game against the Comets, the Vancouver Canucks top minor-league affiliate.

And in that time span, the Tampa Bay Lightning have remained near the top of the Eastern Conference without star forward Steven Stamkos. Playing a key role in the Lightnings recent success has been the play of veteran forward Martin St. Louis, who was passed over by his own general manager Steve Yzerman for a spot on the Canadian Olympic team. The veteran winger and team captain has been on a tear since the Olympic team announcement, racking up 14 points in 10 games since Jan. 7. "I dont think its motivation to be honest," said St. Louis, whose Lightning were set to face the Maple Leafs on Tuesday. "I feel like I played some good hockey this year - Ive had some good bounces - but I dont think (being left off the Olympic team) is motivation. "I mean, Im motivated for Game 1 or Game 10. To play in this league and be successful you need to be motivated. Its been like that my whole career. I dont think these last 10 games Ive been more motivated." St. Louis, who captured his second career Art Ross Trophy last season as the league leader in scoring, also grabbed the spotlight with the first four-goal game of his career against San Jose on Jan. 18. And while hes taken much of the offensive workload in Stamkoss absence, he believes its been a team effort. "At first it was a little shock, obviously, to loose Stammer," he said. "But once thhe dust settled, we realized were where were at without him. [url=https://www.cheapducks.com/877c-adam-henrique-jersey-ducks.html]Adam Henrique Jersey[/url]. "You have to juggle some lines and find a little bit of an identity. I think we settled down and played some pretty good hockey. We have a lot of young guys that have accelerated in terms of their progress with the amount of ice time theyre getting (and) theyve done well." A lot of credit also goes to great chemistry with his teammates. Summer signing Valtteri Filppula is second in team scoring, while forwards Tyler Johnson, Alex Killorn and Ondrej Palat are making big contributions at both ends of the ice. "If you told us before the season started where wed be after Game 53 knowing all the adversity - not that I didnt believe wed be there - I would think a lot of things would have to go right for us to be here," said St. Louis. "Things have gone well considering all the adversity weve gone through." And at age 38, St. Louis himself is still going strong at a point-a-game pace. "Id like to think that Ive been pretty consistent the past few years," he said. "I expect myself to play like I have, so I dont think this year is better than others. "Obviously I had to adjust a little bit not playing with Stammer and I kind of had to re-invent myself a little with shooting the puck a little bit more. Its hard to shoot as much as I have when you play with a 60-goal guy." ' ' '
