Randy Carlyle won't say that Jonas Gustavsson is starting Tuesday night against the Boston Bruins.

Gustavsson is, by the way. James Reimer let that piece of information slip.

It's not that Carlyle is trying to hide anything or play games with the media.

"I'm superstitious," said Carlyle. "This is the way I look at goaltending: We make a decision as a coaching staff to put the goaltender in who's going to give us the best chance for success.

"The goaltender that plays is not expected to go out and be our saviour. He's expected to give us a chance to win. That's what we ask.
