Andersen will patrol the crease during Thursday's home game versus Nashville, Joshua Kloke of The Athletic Toronto reports.
Andersen has been razor sharp recently, maintaining an exceptional 0.84 GAA and .984 save percentage through his last two appearances. The Danish netminder will try to keep rolling and pick up a second straight win in a tough home matchup with a hot Predators club that's averaging 3.26 goals per game on the road this campaign, fourth most in the NHL.
Andersen stopped 32 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Lightning.
Ondrej Palat spoiled his bid for a second straight shutout late in the second period, but otherwise Andersen stymied one of the best offenses in the league with another strong performance.

Andersen will defend the blue paint during Tuesday's home game versus the Lightning, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.
Andersen was nearly perfect in his last start Thursday against L.A., stopping all 30 of the 30 shots he faced in regulation , but he ultimately suffered his 20th loss of the season in overtime. The 30-year-old netminder will try to shake off that tough loss and get back in the win column in a difficult home matchup with a Tampa Bay team that's 21-10-4 on the road this year.
Andersen made 30 saves but took a shootout loss in a 1-0 defeat against the Kings on Thursday.
Andersen couldn't be beat through 65 minutes of play, but shootout tallies by Anze Kopitar and Adrian Kempe tipped the scales in favor of the Kings. It'll still count as the Danish goalie's third shutout of the season, but he slipped to 28-13-7 with a 2.89 GAA and a .908 save percentage through 51 contests. As long as the Maple Leafs remain in the playoff hunt, Andersen will likely see a large chunk of the remaining starts.
Andersen will guard the road goal during Thursday's clash with the Kings, Sportsnets' Chris Johnston reports.
Andersen was rock solid in his last start Saturday against Vancouver, turning aside 25 of 27 shots en route to a 4-2 victory. The Danish backstop will attempt to secure his 29th win of the season in a road matchup with a surprisingly hot L.A. squad that's won three straight games.
Andersen made 25 saves Saturday in a 4-2 win over the Canucks.
Both Andersen and opponent Thatcher Demko got off to queasy starts and both settled in mid-way through the first with the game knotted at two. His mates scored two more in the third to seal the win. Andersen is 4-1 in his last five starts, but he's only delivered a save percentage above .897 twice in that span. He hasn't been his stellar self for a while now, but he still has the Buds in a playoff spot.
Andersen will get the home start against the Canucks on Saturday, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.
Andersen is in quite the rough patch, as he's finished six of the last seven games with a sub-.900 save percentage. Despite those struggles, he has won the last two games due to plenty of offensive support. This is a favorable matchup against the Canucks, who rank 29th with 2.84 goals per road contest, but Andersen is still a high-risk play in the daily fantasy realm.
Andersen made 24 saves in a 5-3 win over the Panthers on Thursday.
Andersen let the Panthers score on three of their first six shots, including a real stinker to Noel Acciari. He settled down and stopped the remaining 21 shots, even though he looked uncomfortable at times. Andersen won, but he has recorded just one single-game save percentage above .897 in his last eight starts. Gulp. While he will always be the Leafs' first choice in net, he's a tough fantasy play as you head to the playoffs.
Andersen will guard the road goal during Thursday's matchup with the Panthers.
Andersen was a little shaky in his last start Tuesday against Tampa Bay, allowing three goals on 29 shots, but he was ultimately able to pick up his 26th win of the season thanks to strong goal support from his teammates. The Danish backstop will look to keep rolling in a road matchup with a Florida squad that's averaging 3.67 goals per game at home this campaign, third-most in the NHL.
Andersen allowed three goals on 29 shots in a 4-3 win over the Lightning on Tuesday.
Since shutting out the Penguins last Thursday, Andersen has yielded nine goals on 76 shots and posted a save percentage below .900 in two games. The shutout makes things look a lot better, but Andersen has really struggled lately, going 2-4-0 with an .877 save percentage in his last six games. It's been a rough season for Andersen overall too, as he is 26-13-6 with a 2.98 GAA and .906 save percentage in 48 games this season.
Andersen will be between the pipes for his fifth consecutive game in Tuesday's road clash with the Lightning, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports.
Andersen went 1-3-0 with a 4.01 GAA and .878 save percentage in his previous four outings, though he did register a shutout versus the Penguins on Feb. 20. A clash with the NHL's most potent offense (3.53 goals per game) isn't likely the type of matchup Andersen would want in order to get his season back on track. Still, the Leafs are putting up 3.48 goals per game of their own and could provide the netminder with an abundance of offensive support.
Andersen made 41 saves in Saturday's 6-3 loss to Carolina.
The pendulum in Toronto continues to swing. Andersen put up a shutout last game but got picked apart in the second period Saturday. He's now 1-4 in his last five games and has allowed at least five goals in three of those. Yes, you read that right. Andersen has been hot in moments, but full-game consistency has been hard to find. You might want to consider an alternative, at least short term.
Andersen will get the home start against the Hurricanes on Saturday, NHL.com's Dave McCarthy reports.
Andersen pulled himself out of a rough stretch by posting a 24-save shutout against the Penguins on Thursday, and he'll get the nod again. The Hurricanes have been quite good on the road lately, as they've won three of four games and averaged 4.4 goals per contest in that stretch.
Andersen made 24 saves in a 4-0 win over the Penguins on Thursday.
Andersen stood on his head in the first period to keep the game knotted at zeros. HIs teammates then took over in the second. It was a statement game for Andersen, who really hasn't been his tremendous self since November. Performances like this mean the Leafs have hope for the postseason and you have the kind of twinetending that can carry you to a title.
Andersen will get the home start Thursday against the Penguins, NHL.com's Dave McCarthy reports.
With the team teetering on a playoff spot, head coach Sheldon Keefe is instilling his confidence in the 30-year-old netminder. Andersen has lost three straight starts while posting a 4.42 GAA and an .835 save percentage, including allowing five goals on 24 shots to the Pens on Tuesday. He'll need to bounce back in a big way; otherwise, Jack Campbell could start cutting into Andersen's share of the starts.
Andersen made 19 saves in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Penguins.
The 30-year-old netminder got absolutely no help from his teammates in this one -- three of Pittsburgh's goals came on the power play, and all of them seemed to be the result of odd-man plays or busted defensive coverage. It's still another poor February outing for Andersen, who has coughed up 13 goals in his last three starts. On the season, he carries a 2.97 GAA and .906 save percentage.
Andersen will tend the twine for Tuesday's road clash with Pittsburgh, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports.
Andersen suffered defeats in each of his last two outings while giving up eight goals on 55 shots (.855 save percentage). The veteran netminder will need to be significantly better if he is going to stop a Penguins offense that is scoring 3.30 goals per game (seventh most in the league). If Andersen struggles Tuesday, coach Sheldon Keefe could decide to utilize Jack Campbell at home versus Pittsburgh on Thursday.
Andersen gave up five goals on 36 shots in a 5-2 loss to the Sabres on Sunday.
Andersen gave up a pair of goals in the second period, but the Maple Leafs erased that damage. The Dane then surrendered three goals in a 1:31 span to take the loss. The 30-year-old dipped to 24-11-6 with a 2.93 GAA and a .908 save percentage in 44 starts this year. He's still likely to see most of the games going forward, but Jack Campbell's solid play has given head coach Sheldon Keefe the ability to trust both goalies.
Andersen will be in goal in Sunday's away clash with Buffalo, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.
Andersen gave up three goals on just 19 shots versus Dallas on Thursday in his first game back from a neck injury. The veteran netminder will get an extra night off while Jack Campbell takes the opening contest of the club's back-to-back. With Toronto trying to hold down a playoff spot, fantasy owners should expect Andersen to see the bulk of the workload the rest of the way.
Andersen (neck) made 16 saves in a 3-2 Toronto loss to Dallas on Thursday.
Andersen had missed four games because of the injury. Get him back in your net, but expect him to get a bit more rest than usual as the season winds on. Jack Campbell has become a viable option to spell Andersen and that means both men will deliver better results, both in the regular season and in the playoffs, should Toronto get there.
