Maple Leafs goalie Erik Kallgren makes a save against the Carolina Hurricanes in the second period at Scotiabank Arena on Thursday, March 17, 2022.

They had the Carolina Hurricanes on their radar, their auburn-haired former mate Frederik Andersen and lit the goal lamp in a 3-2 win Thursday at rocking Scotiabank Arena.

Wearing vintage Toronto St. Patricks sweaters presented the Metropolitan Division leaders their mirror image of hustle and when losing the puck or bumped off of it, Erik Kallgren was there. He didn’t need much luck of the Irish, full marks for 33 saves and his second win on emergency recall.

The Leafs are now down to one game before Monday’s NHL trade deadline and if extra netminding was a priority, Kallgren must be giving Kyle Dubas pause for thought.

It was one of the most intriguing goaltending matchups of the season. Former post-season whipping boy Andersen putting his league-leading 2.06 goals-against average — and 0-4 record in Toronto’s series-deciding playoff games — against Kallgren in the latter’s third NHL game.
