Already eliminated from the playoffs and without goaltender James Reimer for the rest of the latest in a string of damned seasons, the Toronto Maple Leafs lost another goalie when Jonas Gustavsson was hurt during warmups before the Leafs faced off with the Flyers. Nicknamed the Monster, Gustavsson seemed to be taken out not unlike Goliath, when a teammate’s shot caught him inside the pads and felled him like a sniper from the rafters.
The Leafs were forced to go with Jussi Rynnas in his first NHL start, and sadly for the Finnish goalie, he was little more than a trashcan in a street hockey net as the Flyers coasted to a 7-1 win. Gustavsson did emerge on the bench in the second period, though Randy Carlyle didn’t opt to give Rynnas the mercy pull in favor of an injured goalie.
