Look at alllll that net facing Noah Hanifin, and the unpreferable positioning of Frederik Andersen, on his pads, off-balance, and stuck near-side after making a save a split second before. Easy goal, right? Not if you know a little trick I like to call “reading the headline.”
Frederik Andersen made one hell of a glove save, but it wasn’t close to enough as the Hurricanes (4-3-1) earned a 6-3 win in Toronto thanks to a pair of goals from Josh Jooris and three points from Teuvo Teravainen.
Auston Matthews had a goal, his eighth on the season, and added an assist, putting him on pace for 110 points. The Leafs fell to 7-3-0, still good for second in the Atlantic behind the white-hot Lightning, who won their fourth straight last night. Andersen’s having a rough start to his year: He’s got a 3.54 GAA and .893 save percentage, and goaltending remains the Leafs’ biggest worry.
