Eugene Melnyk signs the Ottawa Senators’ paycheques, but James Reimer owns the Sens in the nation’s capital.

The Maple Leafs goaltender was at it again on Saturday night, stopping 47 shots in regulation and overtime and two more in the shootout as the Leafs departed the Canadian Tire Centre with a 4-3 victory.

Reimer improved to 7-0-0 in his career in Ottawa and the Leafs snapped a seven-game road losing streak, during which they were 0-4-3.

“I felt really good, whether the potatoes were good here, I had a lot of energy,” Reimer said with a smile. “They threw a lot of pucks at the net, but what tires a goalie out is the end-zone time. Not necessarily the shots, it’s them working and cycling. That’s when you are in your crouch and you are looking and moving and trying to fight through traffic.

“They were cycling a bit, but a lot of their chances and shots came off rushes. As a goalie, then, you don’t get too worn out.”
