For the second time in less than three months, Jonas Gustavsson has been forced to seek emergency medical attention for his heart.
Anyway you cut it, that’s scary stuff, a situation that no pro sports team dares trifle with.
So as soon as Maple Leafs head coach Ron Wilson heard that the prize rookie goaltender’s heart was racing after playing an outstanding first period Tuesday night against the Montreal Canadiens, he didn’t wait to find out if Gustavsson could continue.
“I’m not going to be responsible for someone keeling over during a game,” said Wilson after the Leafs’ hard-earned 3-0 triumph. “The game’s not that important.”
