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

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
