Frederik Andersen Continues To Struggle In Toronto

from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet,

The volume will be turned up real loud now.

It’s bound to hit a pitch Frederik Andersen never previously experienced while spending three years tending goal for the Anaheim Ducks, or prior to that as he made his way from Denmark to Sweden and eventually North America.

This became his fate the minute he signed a five-year contract with the Maple Leafs over the summer, but the 27-year-old can be forgiven if he thought it would take longer than five starts before his first “crisis” arrived.

In Toronto, this is what happens when the goalie struggles. When he has a slow start to the season and allows seven goals on 24 shots, just as the jackals are circling.

Andersen hasn’t looked the least bit comfortable during his brief time in Leafs colours and acknowledged after Tuesday’s 7-3 loss to Tampa Bay that there’s a pretty good reason for that.

“Well, it’s definitely an adjustment,” he said. “But you’ve got to just keep doing what you’re doing. Don’t try to change too much. I think that’s something I’ve got to do better – just play my game and the results should come.”

Take a deep breath, and repeat after me: our goal tending is fine.  Are we done yet?
