The sound of glove and blocker slapping together don't make much sound, but that was James Reimer on the bench trying to applaud along with fans when Jonathan Bernier was making those big saves on Saturday night.

Reimer had been replaced earlier in the night by the man who is in competition to take the No. 1 job away full time. But Reimer said he wasn't thinking about that as he saluted his rival.
