After Marc-Andre Fleury went down with an injury earlier this month, we were all extremely concerned for how an already-struggling Minnesota Wild team would cope without arguably their most important player. Well, thank goodness for Filip Gustavsson, who stepped up in Fleury’s three-game absence and delivered some sensational performances.
Unfortunately, the injury bug caught Gustavsson as well just before Sunday’s game against the Arizona Coyotes and the team had to recall veteran depth netminder Zane McIntyre on an emergency basis because of it.
And suddenly, just before the Wild’s upcoming game against the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday, he’s healthy again! Gustavsson is back and we’re seeing some stability in between the pipes for hopefully a very long time.
Off the trail...
