Jonas Gustavsson to Get First Career Start

Hockey Night in Canada's Elliotte Friedman, AM640's Jonas Siegel and the Canadian Press' Chris Johnson are all reporting that Jonas Gustavsson was the first goaltender off the ice in practice today which traditionally means that he'll get the start at home tonight against Toronto's provincial rivals the Ottawa Senators.

This is a gutsy move by Wilson that shows how much confidence he has in the rookie netminder. The Battle of Ontario kicks off tonight at 7PM, let's hope #50's up to the task.
