  • Red Wings' James Reimer: Gets overtime win

    Reimer made 33 saves on 35 shots in a 3-2 overtime win over the Blackhawks on Sunday.

    Reimer was the busier of the two netminders, facing 35 shots, including three in overtime, to get the better of Petr Mrazek in the goaltending duel. Both goals allowed by Reimer came in the second period, including a late power-play goal by Nick Foligno to give the Blackhawks a 2-1 lead. The 35-year old netminder turned away the remainder of the shots and finished with a .943 save percentage. Despite this strong game, Reimer remains the backup to Alex Lyon. While this performance was encouraging, it's unclear when Reimer, who has a win in three of his past four outings, will see his next start.

  • Red Wings' James Reimer: Starting in Chicago

    Reimer will start between the road pipes in Sunday's matchup with Chicago, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Reimer was unbeatable in his last start Saturday versus the Flames, stopping all 38 shots sent his way en route to a comfy 5-0 victory. He'll try to pick up his sixth win of the season in a favorable road matchup with a Blackhawks squad that's 11-15-2 at home this year.

  • Red Wings' James Reimer: Shutout in rare start

    Reimer made 38 saves in a 5-0 win over the Flames on Saturday.

    He was especially busy in the second period when the Flames outshot the Red Wings 16-8. Reimer was a difference-maker on the penalty kill, stymying Calgary on all five power plays with 10 stops. It was the second shutout of the season for Optimus Reim, who made his first start since Jan. 14. Don't expect big things from Reimer, who toils behind Alex Lyon, but he can be considered situationally if the matchup is favorable.

  • Red Wings' James Reimer: Slated to start Saturday

    Reimer is expected to start in Saturday's road game versus Calgary, per Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News.

    Reimer has a 4-6-2 record, 3.22 GAA and .894 save percentage in 14 outings in 2023-24. This is set to be his first game since stopping the six shots he faced in a relief appearance against Dallas on Jan. 23. The Flames are 12-12-1 at home, so Reimer should have a fair shot at winning this contest.

  • Red Wings' James Reimer: Needed in relief Tuesday

    Reimer turned aside all six shots he faced after replacing Alex Lyon to begin the third period of Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Stars.

    Reimer entered the game with his team down 5-2 and gave the Wings a chance to mount a comeback, but it fell just short. The 35-year-old has gotten only two starts since Christmas with Lyon taking over the top job in the crease, and Reimer's 4-6-2 record, 3.22 GAA and .894 save percentage on the season don't make a compelling case for more action.

  • Red Wings' James Reimer: Gets win over Toronto

    Reimer stopped 28 of 30 shots in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Reimer had been on the bench for seven straight games after a three-game span in which he allowed 17 goals. He bounced back well after his extended break, limiting the Maple Leafs to a pair of second-period tallies. While this was a solid effort, it's unlikely Reimer will displace Alex Lyon from the No. 1 spot. For the season, Reimer is at 4-6-2 with a 3.30 GAA and an .893 save percentage over 13 appearances.

  • Red Wings' James Reimer: Starting Sunday

    Reimer will guard the road goal versus the Maple Leafs on Sunday, Daniella Bruce of the Red Wings' official site reports.

    Reimer will get between the pipes for the first time since Dec. 27. Alex Lyon has enjoyed a run of playing time, including Saturday's 5-3 win over the Kings. Reimer will see a Maple Leafs team that has lost two games in a row after a four-game winning streak.

  • Red Wings' James Reimer: Fades late against Minnesota

    Reimer made 25 saves in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Wild.

    Minnesota blew open a 2-2 game with three straight goals in just over two minutes during the third period. Reimer is wilting under a heavier workload with both Ville Husso (lower body) and Alex Lyon (upper body) on IR, and he's coughed up at least five goals in four of his last five outings with a horrendous 5.09 GAA and .853 save percentage over that stretch. It wouldn't be a surprise if Michael Hutchinson began to see more action until Detroit's goaltending crew gets healthier.

  • Red Wings' James Reimer: Slated to start Wednesday

    Reimer is set to start on the road against Minnesota on Wednesday, per Jessi Pierce of

    Ville Husso (lower body) and Alex Lyon (upper body) remain on injured reserve while Michael Hutchinson is expected to serve as the backup goaltender Wednesday. Reimer has a 3-5-2 record, 3.16 GAA and .897 save percentage in 11 appearances this year. He's struggled recently, allowing 18 goals on 132 shots (.864 save percentage) over his last four contests. The Wild are tied for 20th offensively this season with 3.03 goals per game, so this could be a good opportunity for Reimer to rebound.

  • Red Wings' James Reimer: Nearly blows early lead

    Reimer turned aside 37 shots in regulation and overtime as well as both shootout attempts he faced in Friday's 7-6 win over the Flyers.

    Detroit handed Reimer a 5-1 lead before the first intermission, but the veteran netminder coughed it up over the next two periods. Detroit was actually staring at a 6-5 deficit with about five minutes left before Dylan Larkin got the game-tying goal. Reimer managed to bounce back to pick up his first win since Oct. 22. He's been tagged for five or more goals in three of his last four outings. With neither Ville Husso (lower body) nor Alex Lyon (upper body) currently available, the Wings have little choice but to keep rolling with Reimer.

  • Red Wings' James Reimer: Starting Friday

    Reimer will patrol the home crease versus Philadelphia on Friday, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports.

    Reimer has taken over as the Red Wings' No. 1 goaltender as Ville Husso (lower body) and Alex Lyon (upper body) are both out of action. Reimer is currently on a five-game losing streak -- he is 2-5-2 with a 2.87 GAA and a .903 save percentage this season. The Flyers dropped a 4-2 decision to Nashville on Thursday and are tied for 23rd in NHL scoring, averaging 2.88 goals per game.

  • Red Wings' James Reimer: Downed by Jets

    Reimer made 36 saves in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to Winnipeg.

    The Red Wings defense was simply overwhelmed, and Reimer had little chance on any of the pucks that beat him. With Ville Husso (lower body) on IR and Alex Lyon (upper body) also unavailable, the Detroit crease belongs to Reimer at the moment, but he's given up 12 goals on 89 shots while taking the loss in three straight appearances.

  • Red Wings' James Reimer: Starting versus Jets

    Reimer will start on the road versus the Jets on Wednesday.

    Reimer has been gifted an opportunity to stake a claim to playing time with Alex Lyon (upper body) and Ville Husso (lower body) both suffering injuries within the last week. Reimer hasn't won since Oct. 22, and he's at a poor 2-4-2 record with a 2.61 GAA and a .908 save percentage through nine games this season. He'll be backed up by Michael Hutchinson for the foreseeable future. The Jets have won four of their last six games, scoring 22 goals in that span.

  • Red Wings' James Reimer: Thrust into action in relief

    Reimer allowed two goals on 14 shots in a 4-3 home loss against the Ducks.

    Reimer came on for an injured Ville Husso (lower body) late in the opening frame. He allowed a power-play goal to Adam Henrique late in the first period, and an even-strength marker to Troy Terry early in the second before settling into the game. Considering the circumstances, Reimer did a pretty good job hanging in and giving his team a chance at a comeback victory. If Husso is forced to miss time, Reimer might see his workload meaningfully increase.

  • Red Wings' James Reimer: Loses after lengthy layoff

    Reimer surrendered five goals on 34 shots in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Stars. The sixth goal was an empty-netter.

    Reimer hadn't started since Nov. 16 in Sweden versus the Senators. He tuned up with a 20-minute relief outing on Saturday, but he couldn't carry any momentum into this start. The 35-year-old is down to 2-3-2 with a 2.58 GAA and a .911 save percentage over eight appearances. He's currently the Red Wings' No. 3 goalie, so it will require either an injury or poor play from Alex Lyon or Ville Husso to get Reimer back into the mix on a regular basis.

  • Red Wings' James Reimer: Gets starting nod against Stars

    Reimer will be between the pipes on the road versus Dallas on Monday, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Reimer will take the first game of the Red Wings' back-to-back, which will leave coach Derek Lalonde with a decision about using either Ville Husso or Alex Lyon versus the Blues on Tuesday. Reimer clearly earned his start after saving all 11 shots he faced in a relief appearance against Ottawa on Saturday. With Detroit carrying three goalies, Reimer's playing time has been too inconsistent for fantasy managers to keep him on their rosters full-time -- he had not played in the previous nine games before Saturday.

  • Red Wings' James Reimer: Flawless in relief

    Reimer saved all 11 shots that came his way in relief duty on the way to Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Senators.

    Reimer stepped into the crease to start the third period after scheduled starter Alex Lyon permitted four goals on 25 shots. Ironically, Reimer hadn't played since a Nov. 16 contest against the Senators in Sweden for the NHL Global Series, when he set aside 29 of 34 shots and ended up saddled with an overtime loss. The Red Wings are unique because they have three goalies on the active roster, with Ville Husso's 14 appearances leading the trio. There's simply not enough work for Reimer to stand out in fantasy, despite his impressive 2.18 GAA and .922 save percentage between seven contests.

  • Red Wings' James Reimer: Falls to Sens in OT

    Reimer turned aside 29 shots in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Senators.

    It was a wild affair in Stockholm, as Ottawa took a 4-0 lead early in the second period only to see Detroit storm back and tie it before the second intermission. Reimer made a number of big stops to help keep the comeback alive, but he'd probably like another crack at the OT winner -- with just two seconds left, Tim Stutzle took a two-handed swing at a puck in midair that the netminder had lost sight of, and it fluttered over Reimer's head as he reflexively ducked. It's the first time this season the 35-year-old has given up more than three goals in a game, but despite his sharp 2.30 GAA and .917 save percentage, he only sports a 2-2-2 record. With Ville Husso remaining back in North America for the birth of his child, it'll likely be Alex Lyon in the crease for the Red Wings on Friday against the Maple Leafs.

  • Red Wings' James Reimer: Starting Thursday

    Reimer will be in goal for Thursday's NHL Global Series game versus the Senators, Max Bultman of The Athletic reports.

    With Ville Husso (personal) not on the trip due to the birth of his child, Reimer will get the nod in the Red Wings' first game overseas. Head coach Derek Lalonde did not rule out Reimer playing both contests -- the Red Wings also face the Maple Leafs on Friday, but Alex Lyon could get that start. Reimer has allowed seven goals on 81 shots over his last three games, going 0-2-1 in that span.
