With Toronto on the rise and Boston perhaps on the decline, Andersen's bear-hunt could continue for quite a while...

- The big dane is back to giving up two goals or less in regulation. 10 of his last 11 starts.
- Durability: 2nd in League for shots against, saves and total time on ice, behind only Cam Talbot of Edmonton. About to crack 60 games.
- Steady Freddie's worst stretches were the 5-8 games after injury/start of season and coming off the All-Star break. At his best playing every-other night: Oct-Nov, Feb-March.
- Current numbers: 2.65 GAA, .918 SV%

... and playoff O/T is 5-on-5, no shootout ;) Leafs are tied for 6th in League for regulation losses with 23.

That's great dane to you.  ;)

I think Veillette isolated the play. Nine minutes left in the first, Freddie is lunging forward to cover the puck during a scramble. Kane gives him a little extra falling on top of him. You can see the weight of his forearm and Freddie's neck twisting to the left.

Here's his article:
https://theleafsnation.com/2017/03/26/frederik-andersen-might-be-hurt-what-now/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

Neck strain/concussion symptoms would explain the weirdness surrounding the decision to come out during the first intermission. Also, Jeff speculates it could be a tweak of the shoulder that he hurt during the Olympics that put him out for a few weeks. Hopefully it's not too bad, he was able to finish out the period. I'm sure the Leafs will err on the side of him being 100% before he goes back in there.

Being the goalie of the Toronto Maple Leafs right now is certainly a high-stress position. And the Leafs have Freddie signed for four more years. We'll probably see another Marner situation, with Freddie wanting to get back in there but the trainers and doctors not letting him until he's 100%.
Hopefully Mac and Sparks can hold the fort until he's better. Andersen was playing great, giving up two a game for a long while now. Opposing shooters needing a one-timer in a corner or a deflection to beat him.

So, the lack of news is good or bad ?

Can they manage to find a way to get another 7 points in 9 games so they can squeeze into the dance ?

It is time to McBackup to rise!

or is it time to Panic ?

I'm going to go with panic. I think it's the safest option until we hear otherwise.

Good to see he's on the ice.  However, its not with regular practice group and that usually means he won't be practicing.  Not looking good for playing tomorrow night, but who knows.

That's great news, means we're prob looking at days/weeks instead of months. Haha medical staff, yeah everyone knows who the season MVP is. Freddie was on a very nice run there, he's had several. Positionally sound, good tight butterfly. Following the play. And it's not just the numbers, .938 SV% in his last 13. Leafs regularly give up 35+ shots, many high quality. You just can't replace that kind of workhorse. 2nd in NHL total time on ice. Best we can hope for is someone holds the fort.

Looks like it could be the right shoulder he injured earlier this year. But the fact that he's back on the ice so quickly seems to rule out concussion.

Good to see him taking part in regular practice... However, Sparks was also called up.  Might just be precautionary but at this point Andersen is probably more DTD than out for long.

Feschuk is reporting that Andersen sustained a blow to his jaw, via anonymous source, and that Andersen thinks he's ready to go for Tuesday. But it's Feschuk on a goalie injury.

I think it's best to give it a day or two more.

Yeah listening to Leafs Lunch and Feshuk is saying almost a year ago today Freddie took a shot to the jaw in practice that they later diagnosed as concussion like symptoms.

David Feschuk with an exclusive report on an injury to the Leafs starting goaltender? This should be good.

McElhinney says he's starting tomorrow ... Curtis says it's the biggest game of his NHL career

No surprise really, Andersen ended up leaving practice 20 minutes in.

But, what does Freddie's mom think? Won't somebody ask his mom?!?!?
