An MRI on Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier has revealed an MCL strain and the goalie is expected to be out of action for three weeks.

Head coach Randy Carlyle delivered the news after practice on Friday.

Bernier was hurt during Toronto's 4-3 overtime victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday night. He left the game midway through the third period after teammate Paul Ranger pushed Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron on top of him.

Bernier had stopped 25 of 27 shots to that point and was replaced by James Reimer.

"We were just kind of spinning around, pushing each other in front and he was looking for position," Ranger explained to media after the game. "I was pushing him around, next thing you know, I just pushed him and he was on top of (Bernier).

Bernier missed five games in March with another groin injury.
