If Jonathan Bernier is forced to miss a sixth straight game on Tuesday night with a groin strain, the Maple Leafs will be forced to decide between starting James Reimer or Drew MacIntyre in net.

Reimer has started five straight games since relieving an injured Bernier against the Kings on Mar. 13. However, after a strong performance against Los Angeles, Reimer has struggled mightily.

Through his five games started, Reimer has allowed 12 goals on 75 shots (.840 save percentage) with his team losing every time out.

Starting back-to-back nights for the second time in less than week, Reimer allowed three goals to the New Jersey Devils on 10 shots Sunday night. MacIntrye entered in relief of Reimer early in the second period and stopped all 12 shots he faced. Still, the Leafs fell 3-2.

Unless Bernier proves ready for action, the Leafs will be forced to decide whether to turn back to Reimer or to give MacIntyre the first start of his NHL career against the best team in the Western Conference, the St. Louis Blues.

Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle said on Monday that he's not certain when Bernier will be ready to return, but said that he's making progress.

With their playoff hopes slipping, who should the Leafs turn to Tuesday night, Reimer or MacIntyre?

As always, it's Your! Call.
