It’s unique.”Perhaps few who take up the trade are as temperamentally suited to the job as the low-key Andersen, though it’s an evolution of poise still in progress, pivoting away sharply from the allegedly volatile personality exhibited at earlier stages of his NHL career.This claim, of emotional turbulence, we will have to take on faith.

Toronto began the second period on the power play, but couldn’t get much going in front of a quiet Air Canada Centre crowd.

Sean Monahan almost doubled Calgary’s lead seven minutes into the second only for Andersen to turn him away from between the hash marks.

Andersen was there again to bail out his teammates late in the period on a Toronto power play when Calgary had a 2-on-1 short-handed break after Marner turned the puck over at the Flames blue line.

Rielly finally evened the score with 1:13 to play in the second, with his shot from the sideboards beating a screened Smith blocker side.

Tkachuk continued to agitate as the game went on and took a couple shoves from Andersen after crashing the net late in the second. On his final shift of the period, he drew a cross-checking call on Jake Gardiner in the corner that set up a Flames power play to start the third.

Monahan thought he regained the lead for Calgary 5:10 into the third but a video review confirmed the officials’ original no-goal call because the net was off its moorings before the puck crossed the goal-line.

The Flames took it to the Leafs in the final 20 minutes, at one point outshooting Toronto 14-3, and held a 43-28 shots advantage heading into overtime.
