How Long Will It Take For A Monster To Turn Into A Savio(u)r?

from Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun,

The lanky free agent signee may have moved a big step closer to being one of the most promising in the league with his 15-stop performance.

It took him two nights—20 minutes on Friday and 40 more last night—but Gustavsson recorded a backhanded shutout, was named the game’s first star and will have tongues all around Leafs Nation wagging this morning.

As irrational as the debates will get, there was some added spice when starter Vesa Toskala let in a softy late in the first period on a shot he should have stopped.

Gustavsson had some Swedish accompaniment in one of the last bids to make an impression on management with the regular-season now just four sleeps away.
