WINNIPEG - James Reimer, playing in his home province, heard his name chanted derisively.

Captain Dion Phaneuf was booed every time he touched the puck.

And the Leafs, when all was said and done in a wild night at the MTS Centre, put that six-game winning streak further in the rearview mirror.

After getting trounced 48 hours earlier in Dallas, the Leafs lost again, falling 5-4 in overtime against a Winnipeg Jets team that has re-discovered its mojo with former Leafs coach Paul Maurice running the bench.

Coach Randy Carlyle has noted time and again that the goaltending has given the Leafs a chance to win, but it didn’t happen on Saturday night, as Reimer was poor in the finale of a four-game trip.
