Phaneuf (upper-body) will miss at least another week.
Phaneuf will miss his third straight game tonight and will likely miss at least three games next week. The Maple Leafs season is pretty much over, so they likely won’t rush Phaneuf back into the lineup.
Reimer allowed four goals on 26 shots in the Maple Leafs loss in Ottawa on January 21st. Reimer hasn’t won a game since December 14th and has gone 0-3-0 with a 3.07 GAA and .912 SV% in January. The way the Leafs are going as of late, Reimer makes for a risky start tonight in Philly.
Lupul (lower-body) has been activated from IR and will play on Thursday.
Lupul has not played since December 31st, but will return to the lineup tonight vs. the Coyotes. The Maple Leafs offence has been a disaster as of late, but Lupul should provide a much needed spark tonight. He has 17 points (9G / 8A) in 26 games this season.
Bernier made 22 saves on 23 shots in the Maple Leafs 2-1 shootout loss to the Devils last night. Bernier will be back in goal for the second game in as many night as the Leafs look to snap a seven-game losing streak. Bernier has gone 1-6-1 with a 2.87 GAA and .887 SV% in January.
Bernier is not on the ice for the Maple Leafs' optional; probable starter.

Lupul (upper-body) practiced on Tuesday; questionable for Wednesday.
Lupul was on the ice again on Tuesday, but only skated on the Maple Leafs fourth line, which is a sign that he will not play tomorrow vs. the Devils. Monitor his status during the Maple Leafs game day skate tomorrow morning.
Phaneuf suffered an apparent hand injury in the Maple Leafs final game before the All Star break in Ottawa. Reports are that Phaneuf aggravated a hand injury in a fight with Eric Staal on Monday and then made it worse while fighting Milan Michalek on Wednesday.
