The Danish NHL-goalie Frederik Andersen didn't get it drømmecomeback on the ice, as he could have hoped for after a period out with an injury.
Thus closed Andersen four goals, when he and the Toronto Maple Leafs met the Colorado Avalanche at home on the night of Tuesday local time.
the Match ended 6-3 to the Colorado Avalanche - the last two goals scored in the empty net when the Toronto wagered everything, and the dane was pulled out.
It started otherwise good for hjemmebaneholdet. After just three and a half minutes of play in the second period and scored Igor Ozhiganov, and just a minute and 14 seconds later brought Kasperi Kapanen Toronto in front 2-0.

however, it was Andersen a little time to get started, he says after the fight to nhl.com:
- You feel a little slow, and maybe the patience is not there all the battle through, but hopefully it goes better next time, says the dane.
