Frederik Andersen has left tonight’s game between the Maple Leafs and Penguins -- for now, at least.

Penguins forward Tom Sestito, cutting across the Toronto net outside of the blue paint, hit Andersen’s head with his hip, sending the Maple Leafs goalie to the ice.

Sestito was called for goalie interference.

Andersen remained down for a short time, before being helped slowly to the dressing room.

Curtis McElhinney is now into the game for Toronto. A Maple Leafs win tonight and they punch their ticket to the playoffs.

More to come.
