Gustavsson made only his fourth appearance of the year Tuesday in a loss against Toronto, stopping all nine shots he faced in relief of Cam Talbot.

Tasked with keeping the Oilers within three goals as they entered the third period, Gustavsson held up his end, but the offense wasn't able to mount a miraculous comeback. The 32-year-old started his career with the Leafs, but there's no one left on that roster except for James van Riemsdyk and Tyler Bozak who played alongside him, so he didn't have too much to reminisce over. Just two of Gustavsson's appearances have been starts, but with Talbot having taken three straight losses, the Swede stands a reasonable chance of getting tabbed for Thursday's matchup with Winnipeg.
