TORONTO — Frederik Andersen stole another two points in the standings for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Anderson made 47 saves in regulation and overtime and stopped three more shots in a shootout in the Maple Leafs’ 2-1 victory over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night.
“I just want to take it one game at a time, real important to be able to flip the page,” Andersen said.
William Nylander scored the winner in the fourth round of the shootout, deking to the backhand to beat Mike Smith. Morgan Rielly scored in regulation for the Maple Leafs. Toronto improved to 18-10-1 and moved into second place in the Eastern Conference, three points behind Tampa Bay.
Mark Giordano scored for Calgary, and Smith stopped 28 shots. The Flames have dropped three in a row.
“We did exactly what we wanted to do, played with energy, put pucks on the net,” Giordano said. “If we play like that we’ll get two points more often than not.”
