In a crucial Game 5 battle between Toronto and the Boston Bruins, the Leafs netminder was forced to stand on his head, including an acrobatic stop midway through the second period of his squad's 2-1 win.
If you ask Patrice Bergeron, he'd probably say a crime was committed on Friday night.

The offender? Leafs goalie James Reimer. The offence? Robbery.

In a crucial Game 5 battle between Toronto and the Boston Bruins, the Leafs netminder was forced to stand on his head, including an acrobatic stop midway through the second period of his squad's 2-1 win.

With the two teams deadlocked in a scoreless tie, Bergeron picked up a deflected point shot and ripped it on what appeared to be an open net.

Not so fast. Reimer extended his pads and made an amazing save on the Boston forward.

With the Leafs down 3-2 in the best-of-seven NHL Eastern Conference quarter-final, they head back to Toronto for Game 6 Sunday (CBC, CBCSports.ca, 7:30 p.m. ET).
