Gustavsson in net for Red Wings

Jonas Gustavsson is in goal Monday for the Detroit Red Wings against the Boston Bruins, making his season debut in place of Jimmy Howard.

According to MLive.com, Howard injured his hand making a save during the Red Wings' 5-2 win against the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday.

Gustavsson sustained a groin injury late in training camp that kept him out until Oct. 11, when he was activated off injured reserve.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
