Justin Holl then had a terrific scoring chance for Toronto with 1:54 left in the period but Hart made yet another tough save, his 23rd of the game.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have looked like a different team since firing head coach Mike Babcock. Auston Matthews found the scoresheet with an assist after a two-game pointless drought. Two of those teams will go head to head on Tuesday night, with the Toronto Maple Leafs heading to Philly to face the Flyers.
Andersen was told his teammates, including Matthews, captain John Tavares and defenceman Travis Dermott, lamented the manner in which the Leafs played in front of him as the clock ticked down. He posted a career-high 31 points in 72 games last season and is due for a new contract as a restricted free agent at the conclusion of the 2019-20 campaign.
Get caught up on the big Battle of the QEW win in Game Tape.
The Leafs lost winger Mitch Marner to an ankle injury in that game and after practicing on Monday, it is expected that they will get their two-time leading scorer back in the lineup this week, but not for the rubber match between the two Eastern Conference foes. He's fifth in the National Hockey League with 42 points, scoring 17 goals and recording 25 assists.
The Philadelphia Flyers are targeting their fifth consecutive victory in this one.
The Maple Leafs are now occupying 4 in the Atlantic Division, but given how strong the Metropolitan Division is this season, that has them sitting below the playoff line, albeit just 3 points back of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Ilya Mikheyev has totaled six assists over the last 10 games for Toronto. 7, Philadelphia, van Riemsdyk 6 (Gostisbehere, Myers), 19:33. Cale Makar has collected six goals and five assists over the last 10 games for Colorado. ΓÇª The Flyers have just one regulation loss at home, where they are 9-1-4.
Start your Sunday morning with Provy's @EASPORTSNHL OT victor. Carter Hart with another fantastic game which kept the Flyers in it. Elliot got the win on Saturday and he owns a respectable 2.70 GAA and a 7-2-2 record, while Hart stands at 8-5-3 with a sharp 2.44 GAA.
NOTES: Philadelphia took the three-game season series 2-1. The Flyers are holding opponents to 2.7 goals, positioning them sixth overall.
