Frederik Andersen will receive the start in goal for the Maple Leafs on the second night of a back-to-back against Colorado. It's the first time he's played on back-to-back nights since January 6-7 of 2017.
Andersen reportedly approached head coach Sheldon Keefe about getting back in the net tonight. He got lit up for five goals against on Tuesday against the Flyers, so this game will give him the chance to wash away that sour taste quickly. He carries a 13-6-3 record into the game, along with a 2.59 GAA and .917 SV%.
Frederik Andersen stopped 30 of 31 shots thrown his way, guiding the Maple Leafs to a 3-1 victory in Arizona on Thursday. The Danish netminder boosted his record on the season to 10-5-3.
It was an excellent all around performance from Andersen, with his only blemish robbing him of his shutout bid with just 16 seconds remaining in the game. Certainly a little frustrating with how close that was, but fantasy owners should be more than happy with this showing from Andersen as it snapped his 0-3-1 skid. The Leafs looked like an energized and organized team under new Head Coach, Sheldon Keefe so this is a good sign for Andersen moving forward. He'll carry his .917 SV% and 2.61 GAA into his next opportunity on Saturday against the Avalanche.
Frederik Andersen stood tall, stopping 37 of 40 shots thrown his way on the road in Philadelphia. He then turned away 10 of 11 shootout attempts by the Flyers, which eventually earned him a 4-3 win.
Andersen may have dressed up as Ed Sheeran for Halloween, but there's no question he was back to himself on Saturday night. The starter was strong and just what the Leafs needed as they were outshot 35-14 after the first period. Freddie has improved his record to 7-2-2 and his save percentage (.904) and goals against average (3.00) are starting to creep their way in the right direction. He's 5-0-2 in his last seven, keep him rolling.
Frederik Andersen picked up the win in the Maple Leafs 4-1 victory over the Sharks on Friday, improving his record to 6-2-1. He only faced 17 shots, but did his job by stopping 16.
Andersen surrendered the first goal of the game, but his teammates picked up the production and provided plenty of support. The Leafs have earned points in five straight Andersen starts so you'd better believe they're going to keep riding their workhorse whenever possible. It looks like Freddie will cede the crease to Michael Hutchison on the second half of a back-to-back on Saturday, but he'll carry a 2.94 goals-against average and .904 save percentage into his next start.
Frederik Andersen was tested with a season-high 46 shots against Boston on Saturday, but he managed to turn away 43 on route to a 4-3 overtime win. The goaltender improved his record to 5-2 and has now won three straight starts.
Andersen looked sharp all night and even shook off a little physicality from David Backes who crashed into his crease, bumping Andersen's head into crossbar in the process. Freddie is clearly fine though, and he now holds a .902 save percentage and 3.09 goals against average. He'll look to carry his momentum into his next opportunity which will likely come on Monday as the Leafs host Columbus.
