Source: Lower-body injury Leafs' Bernier suffered not considered very serious

The injury that caused Jonathan Bernier to leave the Maple Leafs' game in Los Angeles is not believed to be very serious, a source told The Canadian Press.

Bernier left Thursday night's game against the Kings with a lower-body injury and was replaced by James Reimer, who stopped every shot he faced to pick up the victory.

The Leafs travelled from Los Angeles to Washington on Friday and did not have practice. A team spokesman said there would be no official update released on Bernier's status.

Toronto is set to practise Saturday afternoon at the Washington Capitals' practice facility in Arlington, Va., then play them Sunday afternoon.
