Frederik Andersen's 34 saves were not enough to prolong the Maple Leafs season on Sunday night against Washington.
Andersen played another terrific game, holding Washington's top line scoreless and putting the Leafs in a position to win yet again. Marcus Johansson, however, had other plans as he scored late in the third period to erase Toronto's 1-0 lead and then he popped in the overtime winner. Andersen finishes the postseason with two wins, one regulation loss and three overtime losses along with a .915 save percentage and 2.68 goals-against average. Apr 23 - 11:34 PM

Frederik Andersen allowed two goals on 28 shots in Friday's 2-1 OT loss to the Washington Capitals.

The Leafs were able to tie the game at one in the second period thanks to a goal by Auston Matthews, but Caps forward Justin Williams tallied the game-winning goal just 1:04 into overtime to give Washington the win and a 3-2 lead in the series. Andersen now owns a 2-3 record with a 2.86 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage this postseason. One more loss and the Leafs are going home.

Frederik Andersen allowed five goals on 27 shots in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Washington Capitals.

The Leafs got off to a very slow start, as they fell behind 4-1 after the first period. They managed to cut the gap to 4-3 midway through the third period, but that's as close as they'd come to tying the game. The series will now shift back to Washington tied 2-2. Andersen has a 2-2 record with a 3.05 goals-against-average and a .905 save percentage. If you would have told the Leafs that the series would be tied heading into Game 5, they definitely would have taken that. It's now a best-of-three with two of the games being played in Washington.

Thanks to that Toronto now has a 2-1 series lead with Game 4 set to be played in Toronto on Wednesday.

Frederik Andersen will get the nod in Game 3 against the Capitals on Monday.

As great as Braden Holtby has been in the first two games of the Maple Leafs' and Capitals' playoff series, there is a strong argument that Frederik Andersen has been better.

Anderson has stopped 80 of 83 shots at even-strength (.964) and 13-of-14 high-danger scoring opportunities for Washington (.929), while Holtby has turned aside 71 of 76 shots at even strength (.934) and 11 of 13 of high-danger chances (.846). The Maple Leafs are giving the Capitals all they can handle and Andersen is the major reason why.
Apr 16 - 11:28 AM

Frederik Andersen turned aside 47 of 50 shots in Toronto's 4-3 2OT win against Washington.

The Capitals certainly had their chances in overtime, but Andersen managed to hold on until the Leafs could end it. With that, Andersen has now stopped 88 of 94 shots in this series, which gives him a save percentage of .936.

Frederik Andersen is expected to take the net in Game 2 against Washington on Saturday.

He made 41 of 44 stops during the Game 1 overtime loss to the Capitals. Toronto will surely need more of his stellar play if they are to tie the series tonight.

Frederik Andersen allowed three goals on 44 shots in Thursday’s 3-2 OT loss to the Washington Capitals.

The Maple Leafs built up a 2-0 lead in the first period, but they were unable to hold on for the upset victory. Andersen was solid between the pipes throughout the game, but he’ll probably want to have at least two of the goals back. On the game-tying goal, Andersen made the initial save, but he lost the puck in his feet before Justin Williams poked the puck into the net. In overtime, Andersen allowed Tom Wilson to score the game-winning goal from a seemingly impossible angle. The Leafs will look to even up the series in Washington on Saturday night.

Frederik Andersen will indeed be in net for Thursday's Game 1 against the Capitals.

Apr 13 - 6:11 PM

Coach Mike Babcock said that Frederik Andersen "is good to go" for Game 1 on Thursday night versus Washington.

Frederik Andersen (upper body) practiced Tuesday and said he felt "pretty good."

"Yeah, I mean if everything goes well, yeah," said Andersen, who stopped short of declaring himself ready to play. "Definitely want to work has hard as I can and do all the right things to be ready." He appears to be on track to play Thursday night in Game 1 versus Washington.
