Frederik Andersen will start for the Toronto Maple Leafs in their home tilt against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday.
Andersen allowed five goals on 24 shots in the Leafs’ 5-2 loss to Pittsburgh on Tuesday, and Toronto head coach Sheldon Keefe was non-committal after the game about who would be in the crease for Thursday’s rematch.
In the three games he’s played since returning from injury, Andersen has an .835 save percentage. Backup goalie Jack Campbell, on the other hand, has a .919 save percentage with three wins in four games since joining the Maple Leafs.
Newly acquired forward Denis Malgin is also likely to make his Maple Leafs debut Thursday against the Penguins, according to Sportsnet’s Luke Fox.
