According to multiple reports on social media this morning, Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Frederik Andersen will get the start in goal tonight as the Leafs take on the Nashville Predators.
In case you missed it, Andersen left the game midway through the 2nd period of his team’s 7-4 victory over the Anaheim Ducks after taking a skate to the face from Ducks forward Corey Perry.
Here’s the play:
Andersen would be forced to leave the game and backup Curtis McElhinney would guide the Leafs to victory the rest of the way. After the game though, all Leafs fans wanted to hear about was the health of their starting goaltender.
Leafs head coach Mike Babcock offered up a bit of an update on Andersen, saying just that he’s “fine.”
As it turns out, it looks like Babs was right. Way to be Freddy! Get back in there!
