Jonas Gustavsson's game returns while playing for the Marlies
The good news is what ever had been bothering Jonas Gustavsson, whether lack of confidence or his technical game, it seems to have been resolved. In the 5 games played with the Marlies (interrupted by another heart procedure) he is 3-1-1. Very encouraging is his GAA of 1.14 and a SAVE% of .955.
The return of his game couldn't have come at a more important time. With Reimer getting bonked in the head and Giguere's wonky groin, we may be seeing Gustavsson back in a Leaf uniform pretty soon.
But with a group of crippled goalies, a run at a playoff spot might be a stretch now. Unless help is on its way.
