Maple Leafs goaltender Jonas Gustavsson suffers injury in warmups

TORONTO - Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Jonas Gustavsson was helped off the ice prior to Thursday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers after suffering an apparent leg injury.

Trainers rushed to Gustavsson's aid after he went down while taking shots during warmups.

Gustavsson took a shot from Clarke MacArthur off his left knee and was favouring that leg as he limped to the dressing room.

Instead of taking his scheduled start against the Flyers, Gustavsson began the game with the Leafs' trainers, receiving treatment for the injury while staying in his full equipment. He is considered Toronto's backup goalie for the game.

Jussi Rynnas, on emergency recall from the American Hockey League because of an upper-body injury to James Reimer, took the crease in his place.
