• Ducks' Andersen Allows Five Goals In Game 7 Loss

    News: Frederik Andersen allowed five goals on 26 shots in Saturday's season-ending Game 7 loss to Chicago.
    Analysis: A rough night for Frederik Andersen, who was beat twice by Blackhawks' clutch captain Jonathan Toews. While the 25-year-old goalie had a good postseason overall, he allowed at least four goals in his final four playoff games, dropping his save percentage to .913. Although his individual stats may not be mind-blowing, Andersen's 11 wins this postseason and 35 victories in the regular season will make him a very attractive fantasy option once again heading into the 2015-16 season.

    Analysis: Although this was Frederik Andersen's first regulation loss of the postseason, questions have arisen regarding his play in the past few games. Andersen is sporting a weak .856 save percentage in the past three contests against the Blackhawks, where he's been beaten 13 times. While Andersen is not necessarily in danger of losing the crease, he will certainly need to turn in a better performance if his Ducks are to have any hope of winning Saturday's decisive Game 7.

Andersen and the Ducks ended up pulling out the win, but the 25-year-old has now turned in consecutive sub-par performances as he's allowed nine goals on 68 shots in the past two games. Nonetheless, he'll have a chance to end the series and advance to the Stanley Cup Finals in Wednesday's Game 6.

However, Andersen couldn't close the door on the road, as Patrick Kane notched the equalizer later in the period before Antoine Vermette tallied the game-winner 5:37 into the second overtime.
