Red Wings goalie Jonas Gustavsson leaves game against Canucks after 1st period with dizziness

DETROIT - Red Wings goalie Jonas Gustavsson has been replaced by Jimmy Howard against the Vancouver Canucks because of dizziness.

Gustavsson started the game and stopped all eight shots he faced in the first period Monday night, but didn't return to play in the second period.

The Red Wings wanted to rest Howard, who had played two straight games following a four-game absence after aggravating a left knee injury.

Gustavsson was able to start for the fifth time since a groin injury landed him on injured reserve for a second time this season.

He is one of three goalies on Sweden's Olympic team, along with Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers and Jhonas Enroth of the Buffalo Sabres.

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
