Andersen will protect the road net in Tuesday's game versus the Flames, David Alter of The Hockey News reports. Andersen could end up handling a hefty workload for the time being, as Jack Campbell (leg) is expected to miss "weeks," and the Maple Leafs don't have another back-to-back set until Feb. 17. It's been an up and down start to the season for Andersen. He sports a 3-2-0 record to complement an .898 save percentage and a 2.81 GAA. The 31-year-old will have his hands full with the Flames, who average 3.25 goals per game (10th in the league).
Andersen turned aside 30 shots in Friday's 4-2 win over the Oilers. The veteran netminder was beaten once each by Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid, but Andersen kept the rest of Edmonton's skaters at bay and got enough offensive support to record his third win. The 30 stops were also a season high for Andersen through the early going, and he hasn't allowed more than two goals in any of his last three starts to boost his save percentage to . 898.

The 31-year-old had a sluggish start to the season, but he already appears to be turning things around, allowing only three goals on 49 shots ovwer his last two starts.
