TORONTO -- Blood was still dripping from just above the left eye of Toronto goaltender Frederik Andersen moments after the Maple Leafs 3-2 victory over the Florida Panthers on Thursday night. Wholesale Chargers Jerseys .Andersen stopped 29 of 31 shots, bouncing back from the worst start of his NHL career two nights earlier, a seven-goal shelling at the hands of the Tampa Bay Lightning.The 27-year-old looked calm and composed in the crease versus Florida, coming up big in perhaps the Leafs worst defensive showing of the young season.He was our best player by far, coach Mike Babcock said on a night that saw rookie Mitch Marner finish with three impressive assists.Andersen said he was just trying to be patient and let the play come to him. Over-aggression was evident in earlier outings, particularly the shellacking against Tampa on Tuesday.Thats probably the biggest challenge as a goalie is just to try to relax and be calm, the native of Denmark explained. You want to be good and help your team win, but you cant decide when you get to make a save so youve just got to be patient.Andersen, who gave up four goals or more in four of his first five starts, tried to have a little bit more fun around the rink, too, going out of his way to share an extra laugh or two with teammates ahead of the game.Andersen often looked like he was being weighed down by the pressures of Toronto, a vastly more intense market from Anaheim, not to mention the rich five-year contract he signed after a trade from the Ducks and his new position as an undisputed No. 1 starter.Everybody is a proud person and wants to do really well and sometimes when it doesnt go well you put undue pressure on yourself instead of just enjoying it, Babcock said. I keep telling the guys, in this market, maybe more so than any market, you have to have something away from hockey that you love to do so you dont focus on hockey. If you focus on hockey all the time it just wears you out and you come to the rink with no energy.Led by its vaunted top line of Aleksander Barkov, Jonathan Marchessault and Jaromir Jagr, Florida buzzed often throughout the night, capitalizing on turnovers and sloppy defensive zone play. Babcock thought his team gave up more scoring chances than it had in any of the previous six games.Andersen, however, came up with one big save after another.Though he surrendered the games opening goal to Marchessault, on which he had no chance, Andersen then turned aside Greg McKegg on a breakaway as well as Colton Sceviour later in the period, the Florida winger outmaneuvering Jake Gardiner for a quality chance in the slot.Andersen did allow a weak second goal to Marchessault, the shot beating him high on a second period Florida power play, but he quickly recovered with a series of stops on another Panthers man advantage, going right to left to get one particularly suave stop on Sceviour.The Leafs tied the game 2-2 about a minute after that save on a goal from James van Riemsdyk and then went ahead for good six minutes later on the second of two on the evening from Tyler Bozak.All three Toronto goals were set up by Marner, the 19-year-old who enjoyed his first ever multi-point game in the NHL. Marners passes were of the wow variety, particularly a no-look pass to Bozak on that third Leaf goal.If youre Bozak or van Riemsdyk, you know youre getting two or three real good looks a game out of the kid, Babcock said before the game.Babcock has raved about Marners skill and competitiveness often thus far, though he was less pleased with his performance in Tuesdays loss to Tampa Bay than the five that came before that.They all expect my 100 percent every game and even I do myself, Marner said. I just wanted to make sure I came into this game ready to play and knew when I had the chances just make sure they go into the net.Andersen came up bloody with less than eight minutes remaining, the blade of Sceviours stick finding a hole in the goaltenders mask and cutting him just above the left eye.The cut was a small price to pay for a much-needed win.Any time you can walk out of the rink with a win its a good day, Andersen said. Good way to bounce back from last game.Roberto Luongo made 25 saves for the Panthers.Game notes Jagr, who set up Floridas first goal, moved into sole possession of seventh on the all-times game played list (1,636), passing Hall of Fame defenseman Scott Stevens. The 44-year-old is three games from tying Dave Anderchuk for sixth place. ...

ATHENS, Ga. -- Less than a year after a gruesome knee injury, Nick Chubb is ready to run again for the Georgia Bulldogs.His teammates expected nothing less.It was pretty frightening when it happened, center Brandon Kublanow said. But I know Nick. Hes an incredibly hard worker. So there was no doubt in my mind that hed be ready to go.Chubb was one of the nations top running backs and being touted as a Heisman Trophy contender when his sophomore season suddenly ended during an Oct. 10 game at Tennessee.This wasnt just any injury, either.While being tackled along the sideline, Chubbs left knee buckled grotesquely in the wrong direction. When video of the injury was posted on Internet, it usually came with a warning label.Chubb tore several ligaments, leaving some to speculate that it could be career-ending injury. If nothing else, there seemed little chance hed be back on the field some 11 months later.But Chubb has defied the odds every step of the way. And, from all indications, hell be in a leading role Saturday when the No. 18 Bulldogs open the season against No. 22 North Carolina in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.Hes even more physical than he was before, defensive tackle DaQuan Hawkins-Muckle said. Nick Chubb has always been a hard runner, but now hes an even harder runner.New coach Kirby Smart said Chubb will play against the Tar Heels, with no limitations on the number of carries he might get or how many hits he can take.He feels great, Smart said. Hes ready to go.Chubbs recovery is especially timely for the Bulldogs, who have taken some additional hits at running back.Sony Michel, who took over as the starter when Chubb went down, sustained a broken left forearm in an ATV crash in early July and still had not been cleared for full-contact drills coming into this week. Freshman Elijah Holyfield, the son of former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield, is recovering from an ankle injury sustained in a scrimmage.The depth chart released Monday lists both Chubb and senior Brendan Douglas as the first-teamers. Douglas rusheed for only 140 yards last season, averaging 3. Authentic Justin Jackson Jersey. 9 yards per carry.When Chubb scrimmaged for the first time since his injury a couple of weeks ago, there was some natural trepidation about being hit. But, with every practice, he gains more and more confidence that his knee is fully healed.I feel good, he said in a recent interview. Were doing a lot of things to help my knee out, and getting tackled a couple of times helps.Chubb also has been getting used to wearing a knee brace, which still feels a bit awkward but gives him an added sense of stability.I feel good when I have it on, he said.Despite starting only eight games as a freshman in the same backfield with Todd Gurley, Chubb finished his debut season with 1,547 yards -- ranking second in the Southeastern Conference. He stretched his streak of 100-yard games to 13 in a row, equaling Herschel Walkers school record, before the injury at Tennessee ended that run.During his rehab, Chubb was helped along by the Korean martial art taekwondo.A lot of kicking motions and hopping on my legs and stuff like that, he said.Chubb also learned just how much the game meant to him when forced to watch from the sideline. Though never a very vocal leader, hes tried to pass that message on to his teammates.If its taken away, youre going to miss it, Chubb said. So when youre out there, give it all youve got.Given the severity of his injury -- even now, its difficult to watch the replay without feeling a bit queasy -- Chubb conceded that hes a bit surprised to be this far along,Then again, he added, I dont know because I havent been in this situation before. Ive seen people come back from it, but not as fast. I dont know how to feel about it.The Bulldogs are just glad to have him back.---AP Sports Writer Charles Odum contributed to this report.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at .
