On Wednesday, the Bruins released an update on goalie Jonas Gustavsson, saying that he was removed from Tuesday's game for precautionary reasons due to an elevated heart rate. Gustavsson was taken to Mass General Hospital and remained there overnight for testing. All preliminary tests came back negative and he was discharged Wednesday afternoon. Gustavsson is expected to rejoin the Bruins after the All-Star break pending clearance from the Bruins medical staff.

Unfortunately this isn't the first time that Gustavsson has had to leave games in his career due to an elevated heart rate. Gustavsson has had heart ablation surgery three times (September 2009, December 2009 and February 2011).
