He's keeping us in games and really, one can't ask much more from a back-up. I'd like to see that SV% grow but I think with more games, we might just see that.

I'm half hoping Riemer is out for a few more....give Gus a chance to get into a groove.

That's pretty impressive that you remember the quality of the goals that were scored on Fleury between 5 and 8 years ago.  Very impressive actually.

I know its a skill.  I still remember Theodore's backhand save against boston and that was like 10 years ago.

Gus looks better and better with every start. What a relief.

He has stepped up huge and is looking like a guy who would like to play a lot more.

Good news for the Leafs.

Siegel says Gustavsson starts tomorrow in Ottawa. Can't believe he's going back to back.

Gus deserves the start but in a back to back game shouldn't they put in Scrivens?
I guess we're optimists because we are Maple Leaf Fans.

Well Gus is the backup so back to back games really shouldnt be an issue.. it's not like he's got 60 more games to play. Great gamer tonight.. he's making some ridiculous saves. He's still getting scored on.. but they're not bad goals.

I don't think there is anything wrong with giving him a shot to run with things and let reimer not feel rushed back too early. If memory serves me right some of his games last year wouldn't have been losses had he had the feeling that the guys would at least score more then 2 goals at max for him.  Offensively we can give him a better chance to squeak out a win then before. Let's take the chance to build up his confidence in himself and the rest of the guys, nothing bad can come from it.

Boyd Devereaux tried to lose. He was just so horrible when he tried to shoot wide he accidentally score 3 times.

Yeah, the team doesn't play until Wednesday with another pair of back-to-backs, maybe start Gustavsson tonight, and then play him again on Thursday just to keep Reimer in good condition.  Start playing Reimer regularly again after that.

I don't think it's a big issue playing lots over the course of the season, but back to back nights is tough on players. You see fatigue on everyone and considering he faced 37 shots, it wasn't an easy workload for him. I just hope he's rested enough to make the stops he needs tonight.

He's probably going to get lots of rest when Reimer's back. I suspect he slept pretty well last night after playing well against the Pens. He seems to be getting better and more confident with each game. I'd ride him for a few more games until he falters or Reimer returns.

That was a heck of a shot in the head he took when he came out hard late in the game. Gus appears to be more durable and tough than previous years.
