The Anaheim Ducks are coming off of a loss against the Tampa Bay Lightning, but they have a reason to feel upbeat this morning, as it appears that Frederik Andersen avoided an injury on Sunday.
There was some concern that he was hurt after a net fell on him yesterday, but head coach Bruce Boudreau said that the young goalie told him he was fine, the OC Register’s Eric Stephens reports.
That’s certainly a relief for the Ducks as they’ve leaned on the 25-year-old goalie more than just about anyone expected after coming into 2014-15 expecting a timeshare between Andersen and John Gibson.
Andersen is tied with Carey Price for second in the NHL for wins with 29 this season as he helps the Ducks continue their strong success in regular season play.

Considering how much Ilya Bryzgalov has struggled, Anaheim really dodged a bullet here (assuming there isn’t a setback).
