Game day thread: Andersen out, McAdam in

Will Sparks be able to handle the pressure of being #1?

Do the Toronto Maple Leafs have a goalie problem?

Heading into camp it was because they had too many goalies, and now two weeks into the season they have the opposite: not enough goalies.

Kasimir Kaskisuo was injured on the weekend, which led to ECHL Newfoundland Growlers goalie being called up to back up Jeff Glass.

Today it was announced that Frederik Andersen has a knee injury and won’t be playing tonight. So, as the #4 goalie in the system (Glass is on an AHL deal), Eamon McAdams is now being called up to back up Garret Sparks.

The game is at 7:30, and I hope you’re looking forward to a nice, stress-free game.

Go Leafs Go!

I hope.
