Some negative tweets directed at his wife don’t ruffle the feathers of James Reimer.

“For every unfortunate tweet, I think there was 10 or 20 people sticking up for her or me,” the Maple Leafs goaltender calmly said on Tuesday.

“There are a lot of great fans out there, and unfortunately a few of the obnoxious ones, their voice gets heard, But it was definitely a lot louder from people who were supportive and sticking up for her. It’s great to have that support.”
