Jimmy Howard, who started the first three games of the best-of-7 series, did not start because he has the flu, the Red Wings announced. He is Gustavsson's backup.

The Bruins lead the series 2-1.

Gustavsson was 16-5-4 with a 2.63 goals-against average and .907 save percentage during the regular season. He is 4-4-1 with a 3.12 GAA and .893 save percentage in 11 appearances against the Bruins.

Quote of the Day

I think the thing about him, No. 1, he's a competitive guy. We have no issues as far as him fitting in here with this group. No question he's going to be hungry. I think whenever you look at your back end, it's a mix-type thing, and I think [there are] things he can bring to us. He's very mobile, and even though he's not big (6 feet, 201 pounds), he certainly competes. He's a smart player.
