October 25th, 2016. Frederik Andersen goes in between the pipes for the Maple Leafs, having let in about 12% of the shots he had faced in the previous four games. Something was clearly up; he wasn't playing like he did in Anaheim, and nobody could pinpoint why. The likeliest reason was recovery from his shoulder injury, but combine some under-confidence and you had a goalie who was playing far too aggressive and getting beat up high.
The Tampa Bay Lightning are in town. Eighty seconds in, Steven Stamkos, a man who was potentially a better meeting away from signing with the Leafs, scores his fourth of the year. It was far from Andersen's last whiff of the game; pucks beat him again, and again, and again. A guy behind me wrote Freddy off, as much as I would insist about the shoulder thing, about how this would all settle, and how this was a playoff team.
Fast forward to a few weeks later. The Leafs are taking on the Bolts again, they're three points back of third in the Atlantic with three games in hand, and Andersen is a 0.939 in his 24 games since.

This wasn't a situation that many saw coming, was it? The Toronto Marlies now officially have a losing record (by points percentage) for the first time since January 5th, 2015, having fallen 3-1 to the Binghamton Senators last night.

Wednesday was a relatively busy day for Leafs prospects, as 3/4 players participated in the action with their respective teams. Yet again, Carl Grundstrom had a fantastic game for Sweden, contributing two primary assists in Sweden's 4-2 win over Switzerland. Joseph Woll took to the net for the USA in their game against Slovakia, stopping 18/20 shots in a 5-2 victory. Jeremy Bracco did not have a fantastic game for the Americans today, but saw a promotion to the USA's second line, playing with captain Luke Kunin and Jordan Greenway.
