Frederik Andersen to start Game 3 for Ducks

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Bruce Boudreau is making a goaltending switch for Game 3.

After losing the first two games of their second-round Western Conference playoff series against the Los Angeles Kings, the Anaheim Ducks are making a goaltending change for Game 3 and going with Frederik Andersen instead of Jonas Hiller.

Why the switch?

Well, Andersen's success at Staples Center this season keeps getting mentioned.

That is ... interesting. Do sample sizes of two and seven starts really tell you that much? Or are the Ducks in panic mode and getting fooled by the randomness of a small sample size?

Andersen started in the first round for the Ducks before being pulled in Game 6 against the Dallas Stars after giving up four goals on 12 shots. He was replaced by Hiller, who kept the starting job in Games 1 and 2 against Los Angeles, giving up five goals in the two losses.
