I thought we stepped on the ice Antworten

TORONTO (AP) Frederik Andersen could sense this was going to be a low-scoring game without many chances. He was right – and he was sharp when it counted.Andersen made 40 saves and James van Riemsdyk scored the only goal as the surging Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Florida Panthers 1-0 on Tuesday night for their seventh consecutive victory at home.”These are always fun Jonathan Huberdeau Jersey ,” Andersen said. ”The game was tough from the beginning. I think the ice was a little tough.”Article continues below ...The shutout was Andersen’s career-best fifth of the season. The 28-year-old goalie reached 30 wins for the third time.Andersen also improved to 7-0-2 with a 1.82 goals-against average, a .952 save percentage and two shutouts this season when facing 40 or more shots.Opponents are taking note of his elevated game.”Especially this year, he’s really taken his game to another level,” Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo said after Tuesday’s morning skate. ”Obviously in the top tier of goaltenders in the league now, and he’s giving his team a chance to win every night.”Toronto (37-20-5) has won 11 of 12 overall and improved to 14-4-2 since Jan. 4.The Panthers (26-25-6) have dropped back-to-back games after opening their five-game road trip with three straight wins.

It’s a tough loss.”Andersen is the fifth Maple Leafs goaltender to register multiple shutouts when making at least 40 saves since 1955-56 when the NHL began counting shots on goal as an official statistic.”I think a huge part of it is fitness Keith Yandle Jersey ,” Toronto coach Mike Babcock said. ”He did a real nice job this summer and so he’s just building off of confidence. I think last year, if I’m not mistaken, was the first time he’s ever really been the starter.”So, you go through that and you get comfortable and you get comfortable with your teammates and it just goes from there.”With 28 seconds left in the first period, van Riemsdyk beat Luongo between the legs with a shot from the faceoff dot for his 25th goal of the season. Jake Gardiner had an assist for his 200th NHL point.”In a lot of those situations, there’s not a lot of time so you just want to try to get it off as quick as you can,” van Riemsdyk said. ”To say I was shooting there would probably be a lie. I was just trying to throw it on the net and get it there quick and it went in, thankfully.”Patrick Marleau nearly made it a two-goal game 1:02 into the third by finishing off a 2-on-1 feed from Mitch Marner, but couldn’t beat the right pad of Luongo.With 2:40 remaining Authentic Nick Bjugstad Jersey , Leo Komarov’s shot beat Luongo but rang off the post.The Panthers defeated the Maple Leafs 2-1 in a shootout on Nov. 22 in the only previous meeting between the teams this season.
