Andersen made 34 saves in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.
He did everything he could just to secure a point for Toronto, including denying Cam Atkinson on a third-period breakaway, but Andersen was finally beaten for the winner on a penalty shot. The netminder is now 5-2-1 with a somewhat disappointing 3.19 GAA and .901 save percentage through eight starts.
Andersen is expected to start in the home goal for Monday's game against the Blue Jackets, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.
Andersen carries a three-game win streak into this contest, and he's been a major part of the team's success with a .931 save percentage and 2.28 GAA in that span. He draws a favorable matchup against the offensively limited Blue Jackets, who have averaged just 2.25 goals per game.
Andersen made 43 saves in a 4-3 overtime win over the Bruins on Saturday.
Andersen has been middling at best so far this season, but he was dialed in Saturday night. We all got a bit of a scare when David Backes ran Andersen, hitting him helmet-to-helmet and pushing the goalie's head hard against the crossbar. But Andersen was no worse for wear, even with his history of concussions. The Great Dane has now won three consecutive games.
Andersen will start Saturday's matchup against the Bruins, Dave McCarthy of NHL.com reports.
This will be Andersen's seventh start in Toronto's first nine games. He'll be looking to exact revenge on the Bruins team that knocked the Maple Leafs out of the playoffs last season, but Andersen has been shaky thus far. The 30-year-old netminder's 4-2-0 record comes despite a 3.14 GAA and .893 save percentage.
Anderson made 27 saves in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Wild.
The Leafs erupted for four goals in the second period, giving Andersen all the cushion he needed. The 30-year-old is now 4-2-0 to begin the season with a 3.14 GAA and .893 save percentage, numbers which should improve as he puts last week's seven-goal debacle against the Lightning further behind him.
Andersen will guard the cage against the Wild on Tuesday, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.
Andersen has already seen mixed results early this season but is coming off a strong 27-save win over the Red Wings. His .886 save percentage and 3.38 GAA looks rough on paper but it should improve against a floundering Minnesota offense. Andersen is still a must-start in all formats right now.
Andersen made 25 saves in a 5-2 win over Detroit on Saturday night.
That was a nice settle-me-down effort after Thursday's seven-goal loss against Tampa Bay. The Leafs have a lot of new faces this season, so they need to learn how to play together. Andersen will need to be his superstar self while they work that out. Remember the Blues last season? They suffered with the same storming and norming for the first half of the season. Andersen must be hoping his Leafs go through that a whole lot faster. He's still a great fantasy play, but it's important to have realistic expectations.
Andersen will tend the road twine Saturday versus the Red Wings, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports.
Andersen was torched for seven goals on 28 shots by the Lightning on Thursday night, and he's now yielded 10 goals and posted an .828 save percentage over the last two games. He's looking to get back on track against the Red Wings, who have showed more life this year with four or more goals in three of four games so far.
Andersen was pulled in the third period of Thursday's 7-3 loss to the Lightning. He made just 21 saves on 28 shots.
All seven goals were on him, but they weren't all his fault. The Bolts' top line put up 11 points and their puck movement was absolutely dizzying. This one was ugly, but Andersen will shake this off.
Andersen will patrol the crease in Thursday's home game against the Lightning, NHL.com's Dave McCarthy reports.
Andersen has enjoyed a solid start to the season, posting a 2-1-0 record while registering a 2.37 GAA and .918 save percentage in three appearances. The Danish netminder will look to stay dialed in while attempting to pick up his third victory of the campaign in a home matchup with a Tampa Bay team that's averaged 3.67 goals per contest through its first three games of 2019-20.
Andersen allowed three goals on 30 shots in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Blues.
It wasn't a bad performance by Andersen, but more of a case of the Maple Leafs not having their best night in support of their goalie. The Dane suffered his first loss of the season, but he's allowed only seven goals over three starts so far. If he draws Thursday's goaltending assignment versus the Lightning, it could be a much tougher task.
Andersen will get the starting not at home against the Blues on Monday, Jonas Siegel of The Athletic reports.
Andersen got the night off Saturday, as Michael Hutchinson took the second game of the back-to-back. The 29-year-old Andersen is undefeated to start the year, along with a 2.00 GAA and .927 save percentage in two outings. The netminder could face a reduced workload Monday, considering the Blues are averaging just 26.0 shots so far, second fewest in the league.
Andersen stopped 28 shots in Friday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.
Cam Atkinson ruined his shutout bid in the second period on the power play, but Andersen otherwise stood tall and made a number of big saves until the Leafs were able to pull away in the third. The 30-year-old netminder is off to a fast start to the season, going 2-0 with a 2.00 GAA and .927 save percentage through his first two games.
Andersen will get the starting nod for Friday's road clash with Columbus, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.
Despite walking away with a win, Andersen will no doubt be eager to improve upon his Opening Night form, in which he gave up three goals on 26 shots to the Senators. With a back-to-back on the schedule, it wouldn't have been a shock to see Andersen get the night off on the road, but perhaps the coaching staff wants to let him work through any early-season rust. On the road last year, Andersen went 18-6-6 in 30 games with a .919 save percentage.
Andersen stopped 23 of 26 shots Wednesday to help lift Toronto to a 5-3 win over Ottawa.
Coming off a terrific preseason, Andersen wasn't terribly busy Wednesday but his 23-save effort was enough to secure the victory. The 29-year-old is in his fourth season as the Toronto starter and is coming off a 2018-19 campaign in which he went 36-16-7 with a 2.77 GAA and .917 save percentage.
Andersen will patrol the crease in Wednesday's home matchup with the Senators, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.
Andersen was ridiculously sharp during preseason play, compiling a 3-0-0 record while posting an extraordinary 0.30 GAA and .988 save percentage in four appearances. The Danish netminder will look to ride that momentum and pick up his first win of the 2019-20 campaign in a highly favorable home Opening Night matchup with an Ottawa team that went 11-28-2 on the road last season.
Andersen is the starter for Saturday's preseason finale against the Red Wings, Paul Hendrick of Leafs Nation Network reports.
Andersen is the unquestioned No. 1 in net for Toronto, and he'll look to build some momentum heading into the regular season here.
Andersen will be between the pipes for Wednesday's preseason clash with Montreal, Jonas Siegel of The Athletic reports.
Andersen stopped all 26 shots he faced from Buffalo on Friday before giving the third period to Michael Hutchinson. The 28-year-old Anderson reached the 60-game mark in each of his previous three seasons and should do so again in 2019-20. Backed by one of the most star-studded offenses in the league, the Dane is certainly capable of compiling a third consecutive 35-plus win campaign and could be a Vezina Trophy candidate.
Andersen will start between the pipes in Tuesday's exhibition game against Ottawa, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports.
Andersen was a fantastic fantasy option last season, compiling a 36-16-7 record in 60 appearances while posting a 2.77 GAA and .917 save percentage. The Danish netminder is locked in as the Maple Leafs' workhorse heading into 2019-20, and should make at least 60 starts in goal for a fourth consecutive campaign.
Andersen stopped 27 of 30 shots during Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Bruins in Game 7.
Boston's final two goals were scored into an empty net. The Danish netminder made some big saves to keep the Leafs in this one through two periods, but Tuukka Rask made a few more, and the Bruins finally pulled away in the third. Andersen has put together three strong regular seasons since coming to Toronto, winning at least 33 games in each, but until the Leafs make a splash in the playoffs, his tenure as the team's No. 1 goalie will seem disappointing.
