James Reimer went down, Jonas Gustavsson came in and the Toronto Maple Leafs rallied to a late rescue.

And thanks to Mikhail Grabovski's OT winner, the Leafs earned a 5-4 victory and Gustavsson got his first win since Jan. 6.

Leafs Nation seemed to come to a stop when Reimer didn't come out for the second period. Word after the game was that he'd suffered a whiplash-like injury and should be okay, according to coach Ron Wilson. His removal was more precautionary.

"He could have finished the game, but this early in the season we didn't want to risk it," said Wilson.

With calls for Jacques Martin's firing echoing through Montreal because of the Habs' slowest start in 16 years, two energy-filled squads that don't like each other very much went right at it.

Montreal ran Reimer, the Leafs ran Carey Price.

Reimer, who was 4-0-1 to start the season and a big reason for the team's hot start, got the worst of it when Montreal captain Brian Gionta collided with him.
