This is Gustavsson's first start since March 13th when he was lit up for five goals on 22 shots. He gets the call tonight after Jimmy Howard had a great weekend. Howard went 2-0-0 with a 1.00 GAA and .971 SV% vs. the Ducks on Friday and Sunday. Gustavsson has a good matchup against a Coyotes team who have lost five straight.
Jimmy Howard has the flu and did not practice this morning so Gustavsson will be between the pipes tonight against the Flames. He allowed three goals on 24 shots in his last start vs. the Blue Jackets. Gustavsson has a good matchup vs. the Flames so he could make for a good spot start.
Gustavsson will give Jimmy Howard the night off after three great games in a row from Howard. Gustavsson played very well in his last outing stopping 25 of 26 (.962 SV%) shots that he faced in a 2-1 win over San Jose. He has a great matchup tomorrow against Columbus.
Jonas Gustavsson will start tonight, barring a setback.
Gustavsson was supposed to make a start last week but was forced to miss it because he tweaked his groin earlier in the day. He is set to make another start tonight when the Red Wings face San Jose. Gustavsson could be worth a spot start tonight but it is tough to put faith in a goalie who has barely played this season.
Jonas Gustavsson (groin) should be able to back-up Jimmy Howard on Wednesday. The team reassigned Tom McCollum to the Grand Rapids Griffins after he dressed as Howard's back-up during Sunday's 8-3 win over Vancouver.
“They think it's just a slight aggravation,'' Holland said of Gustavsson. “If things change, we can fly somebody out tomorrow.''
#RedWings have recalled Jonas Gustavsson and reassigned goalie prospect Petr Mrazek to @griffinshockey.
Gustavsson has yet to make a start in the NHL this season because he got hurt filling in for Jimmy Howard in the Red Wings first game this season. Howard is a workhorse so Gustavsson likely won't be fantasy relevant but could be worth the occasional spot start.
