James Reimer’s Unreal ‘Stick Shift’ Changes Tone of Series As Bruins Head to Toronto for Game 6 (Video)


The Bruins surged in the final 20 minutes of Game 5, but the Maple Leafs were able to hold on for dear life and escape TD Garden with a series-saving victory. Now, the venue shifts back to Toronto for a Sunday night showdown, where the Bruins will once again try to close out the pesky Maple Leafs.

Jaromir Jagr had a great chance at knotting this one up during the frantic final minutes, but James Reimer was somehow able to steer the shot away with the knob or handle of his stick. That left the Bruins one goal short of a dramatic comeback and a chance at winning the game and series in overtime.

For his great play all night and that one save in particular, Reimer is our “Stick Shift” player of the game. Who’s yours?
