Unnamed NHL sources revealed yesterday that Toronto Maple Leafs' goaltender Jonas Gustavsson has been seen in both Pittsburgh and Philadelphia recently. The speculation is that he's been giving helpful tips and suggestions to both Marc-André Fleury and Ilya Bryzgalov.

Further confusing matters was the Flyers' Sergei Bobrovsky, when he hinted to reporters late last night that he had not actually spoken with the Leafs' Gustavsson, although he felt certain that Gustavsson had coughed on him at some point.

Concerns began to arise when an anonymous gift of strange-smelling Hudson's Bay blankets were mysteriously delivered to the Flyers' dressing room shortly before the game.

Bobrovsky has been under examination from Flyers' medical staff since last night's game ended. He was overheard mumbling something about beach balls flying at him, but no more context was offered by the team's front office.

An investigation is expected to be forthcoming.
