James van Riemsdyk has taken up residence in Randy Carlyle's doghouse.

The Maple Leafs winger has gone seven games without a goal, his longest slump this season, and Carlyle showed his displeasure on Monday.

Van Riemsdyk finished with 18 minutes, five seconds of ice time in a 3-2 shootout loss against the Boston Bruins, but played just three minutes 11 seconds in the third period. He didn't get on the ice in the final eight minutes and did not have a shift in overtime.

"I think James has got some work to do in some areas," Carlyle said.
