45-19 shots and down 3.  But the goalie has nothing to do with it and the game didn’t matter anyway.   

LOL. Wow, way to misrepresent what I'm saying.  I'm saying this game is no more important than any other game.
And there's an entire team in front of Andersen that made critical errors in every single goal against.  Why don't they shoulder any blame?  Because you have some random, blind dislike for our goalie?
If a player never made an error there would never be a scoring chance against. That's what goalies are for, to stop quality scoring chances against, it's literally their job. When a guy let's in bad goals I call him on it. When he bails a team out I praise him. Vas gets the praise tonight while Andersen was the 2nd best goalie on the ice

So I guess we don't really want to try and get home ice in the playoffs by catching Tampa? Playing head to head against the division leader is a big moment for playoff positions. Had they won the Leafs were 4 back.

So, a single game against Tampa Bay is a super important moment?  Had the Leafs won here, the next 10 games wouldn't matter because we beat Tampa Bay on this day?
When did I say the next 10 games won't matter? Going head to head against the team you're chasing always matters more. You control your own fate and can get a 4 point swing

And by the way, in 2015-2016, Andersen had a 947 sv% in the playoffs.  So the entire theory he sucks in big games is a load of horseshit.
As evidenced by the multiple playoff rounds he's led the Leafs to victory in.

LOL... Andersen with a .928 sv%, but he's not good enough to win for us... Riiiiight...
People are so knee jerk...
It ain't. 928 after tonight

Is that your justification why we can't win with Andersen?  Because tonight's game will drop his sv% a bit?
No the entire conversation is Andersen in "big moments". Sure this is just a regular season game but it's #1 vs #2. They'll say it's just another game but the players know it's a measuring stick game.   He wasn't up to the task. Just like in the 2 previous playoffs he was was the 2nd best goalie in both series.

This isn't a big moment.  Anyone who thinks it's a big moment is distracting themselves from playing the game at hand.
Just like his 950 sv% in a game against Boston doesn't mean anything by itself.

To put this all on Freddie is being short sighted. Hainsey messed up on  the third  goal and Dermott got caught pinching on the 2nd. Bab's gets an F to for putting the 4th line out after a goal.
And contrary to popular belief, this isn't a big game. It's one of 82 that gets them into the playoffs. 50 games to go.
I mean mistakes are gonna happen, but you expect your goalie to save a fairly routine back hand especially considering what the other goalie is doing tonight. After dominating the entire period and he lets that garbage in for the 3rd goal?

A) it was a very nice against the grain shot
B) Andersen didn’t have much work that period and I suspect got a bit cold

Don’t always have to take an apologetic position.

Don’t always have to take the apocalyptic position.
Switch goalies tonight and what's the score?

Well. Reality check time. No excuses, but ....the Leafs are still on the up swing and the Lightning have already ‘swung up’ and for a few years now. So patience is still in order with this club. Lets hope for some lucky matchups come playoff time. Oh and did I ever mention I think a trade is in order for some ‘D’ ?  ???
Yeah one nice right handed d to stabilize the top 2 pairings would be ideal.

Sucks to be down tonight cause they played well overall

Leafs should have been up like 5-1 but nothing and then they get gifts. Unbelievable

Zaitsev is playing really well tonight.
Nice hit on Kucherov but then they forgot about him and he almost scored

14
This is something else.   Have to like the Leafs effort in this one regardless of the result
I still want the result. This is like 93 Habs level horseshoes
