March 19th is the last time Leafs number one goalie Frederik Andersen has seen game action and it did not go well to say the least, he allowed 4 goals on just 18 shots in a 4-3 loss to the Calgary Flames. Since then it has been revealed that Andersen had been battling a knee injury that according to him severely impacted his play.
Frederik Andersen on the decision last month to take a break and let his knee injury heal: "I reached a point where I just couldn't feel confident in net — pushing and stopping as hard as I need to be aggressive. And it showed."

Since his last game action, backup goaltender Jack Campbell has taken the reigns with an impressive 13-2-1 record and a .922 save percentage. However, it still sounds like Andersen is their number one guy and they would like to get him some games to get ready for the playoffs.
Frederik Andersen says it would be great to get in some game action before the playoffs.

What do you think? Should Jack Campbell keep the crease, or should the reigns be handed back to a healthy Frederik Andersen?
