Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier  is out a minimum of three weeks after an MRI revealed a strain of the medial collateral ligament in his left knee, head coach Randy Carlyle said Friday.

Bernier was injured in the third period of the team's 4-3 overtime win over the Boston Bruins on Thursday after Maple Leafs defenseman Paul Ranger checked Bruins center Patrice Bergeron into Bernier.

Bernier also missed five games earlier this season with a groin strain. The Maple Leafs will now rely on backup James Reimer.

Toronto, who has four regular-season games remaining, is one point behind the Columbus Blue Jackets for the final wild-card playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
