Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Can't prevent sweep
Andersen turned aside 20 of 24 shots in a 4-3 loss to Florida in Game 4 on Wednesday.
Carolina lost Andersen's previous two starts despite him stopping 73 of 77 shots over that span. In contrast, the Hurricanes were able to provide him with decent offensive support Wednesday, but that didn't change the result. Andersen was beaten twice in the first period and surrendered a goal in each of the second and third frames. With Carolina eliminated from contention, the goaltender has finished the playoffs with a 5-3 record, 1.83 GAA and .927 save percentage in nine appearances.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Looking to avoid elimination
Andersen will start on the road in Wednesday's Game 4 versus the Panthers, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.
Andersen has allowed just four goals on 77 shots in two appearances during the Eastern Conference Finals, but he's ended up with a loss in both of those games.

Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Allows just one goal, but loses
Andersen stopped 16 of 17 shots in a 1-0 loss to Florida in Game 3 on Monday.
The only goal Andersen allowed was scored during a Panthers power play. Between him and Antti Raanta, who started in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Carolina's goaltenders have surrendered just six goals on 103 shots in this series, but the Hurricanes' forwards have gone cold. Carolina now finds itself down 3-0 with Game 4 set to be played Wednesday. It wouldn't be surprising if Andersen started in the must-win contest, especially because Hurricanes coach Rod Brind'Amour's probable motivation for using Raanta in Game 2 was to rest Andersen after Thursday's quadruple-overtime contest. Fatigue shouldn't be a concern after the relatively light workload during Monday's outing. Andersen has a strong track record too, going 5-2 with a 1.58 GAA and a .937 save percentage in eight playoff appearances this year.... See More ... See Less

Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Falls short in 4OT game
Andersen stopped 57 of 60 shots in Thursday's 3-2 quadruple-overtime loss to the Panthers in Game 1.
Andersen gave up a couple of goals to the Panthers' top line in the second period. He settled in for over 100 minutes of playing time before a late turnover in the fourth overtime led to Matthew Tkachuk's game-winning tally. This was the first time Andersen's been charged with a loss this postseason, and just the third time in seven outings he's given up multiple goals. Assuming he recovers well from the marathon game, he should be back in net for Game 2 on Saturday.... See More ... See Less

Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Stops 27 in series-clincher
Andersen stopped 27 of 29 shots to grab a series-clinching 3-2 overtime win over the Devils on Thursday.
Andersen has seen action in just six games this postseason, but managers have to like how he responded to the lowest point of the playoffs. He allowed four goals on 12 shots in Game 3. Yet he responded by stopping 21 of 22 in Game 4 and 27 of 29 in Game 5. It bodes well for his ability to be resilient as the 'Canes move on to the conference finals.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Slated to face Devils
Andersen is set to start at home against New Jersey in Game 5 on Thursday, per Tom Gulitti of NHL.com.
Antti Raanta (illness) is ready to return to the lineup, but he's slated to serve as the backup Thursday.

Andersen saved 28 of 29 shots in a 6-1 win over New Jersey in Game 2 on Friday.

Since taking over the starting duties in Game 6 of Carolina's first-round series, Andersen has been dominant, posting a 3-0 record, 0.97 GAA and .963 save percentage. Although it hasn't been confirmed, it's fair to believe that he'll be in net Sunday.... See More ... See Less

Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Sharp in clinching win
Andersen made 33 saves in Friday's 2-1 overtime win over the Islanders in Game 6 of the Hurricanes' first-round series.
Antti Raanta got the nod in the first five games of the series, but after Raanta posted a 2.98 GAA and .894 save percentage in his last four starts, Andersen saw his first action since April 13 and responded with a strong performance to send his team into the second round. Coach Rod Brind'Amour could now have a tough choice to make in net, but he'll have a few days to think about it as the Hurricanes await the winner of the Devils-Rangers series.... See More ...
