Gryba had no points, an even plus/minus rating and 17 penalty minutes in four Stanley Cup Playoff games. He was suspended for Games 2 and 3 of the first round against the Montreal Canadiens for an illegal hit on Lars Eller in Game 1.
Benoit replaced Gryba in Game 2, his only postseason action, and had an assist on the Senators' goal in a 3-1 loss.
Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
— Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock on rookie goaltender Garret Sparks, who made 24 saves in his first NHL start, a 3-0 win vs. Oilers
