Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Jonas Gustavsson was injured during pregame warmups Thursday night.
Gustavvson had to be helped off the ice and to the dressing room after taking a shot from Clarke MacArthur off his left knee.
The injury forced the Maple Leafs to give Jussi Rynnas his first NHL start. Rynnas had been called up on an emergency basis due to an injury to Toronto netminder James Reimer.
Rynnas was pierced for seven goals as the Flyers sent the Maple Leafs to their 11th consecutive home loss 7-1.

As the analyses of what went wrong with the Maple Leafs this season began pouring in following their mathematical elimination Tuesday night, the common thread regarding the club going forward is that Brian Burke will have to make significant roster changes to be able to play Randy Carlyleâs type of game and avert missing the playoffs for the eighth straight season.
