Senators Sign Anderson To Three-Year Extension

News: Craig Anderson inked a three-year contract extension with the Senators on Friday.
Analysis: Craig Anderson will get an average of $4.2 million over the three years, a larger contract than the one signed by his fellow netminder and teammate, Robin Lehner, earlier in the offseason. His contract was set to expire following next season, but now he will battle Lehner for the starting gig for the next four seasons.

Sens' Anderson Looking To Bounce Back In 2014-15

News: Craig Anderson finished the season with a 25-16-8 record, .911 save percentage and 3.00 GAA.
Analysis: Craig Anderson wasn't nearly as good this season as he was in 2013, but there's no indication that the team has lost faith in him. The Senators' real problems lie within their group of defensemen, not their goalies, so expect Anderson to have a bounce-back 2014-15 if his team can add some pieces on the blue line.

Sens' Anderson Shuts Out Leafs

News: Craig Anderson made 28 saves in Saturday's 1-0 win over the Maple Leafs. It's his fourth shutout of the season.
Analysis: He was red hot -- too bad the Sens aren't playoff bound. The win was his 25th of the season.

Senators' Anderson To Start Saturday

News: Craig Anderson will be between the pipes for Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson has posted an unsightly 3.06 GAA this season despite going 24-16-8, but he won his last start and will look to make it two in a row Saturday in what may be his final start of the season.

Sens' Anderson Delivers 45 Stops In Victory

News: Craig Anderson stopped 45 of 46 Islander shot attempts in Tuesday's 4-1 victory.
Analysis: A terrific start for Craig Anderson, but as it does come on the heels of a seven-goal meltdown, it loses a bit of its luster. Still, the Sens draw the offensively challenged Devils on Thursday, which should offer a nice opportunity for Anderson to build on Tuesday's success.

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson To Start Tuesday

News: Craig Anderson will get the start in goal Tuesday against the Islanders.
Analysis: After coming off a particularly rough outing in which he allowed seven goals on 23 shots Saturday, it was not clear whether Craig Anderson would give way to Robin Lehner on Tuesday. Despite getting the start, Anderson hasn't generated much confidence in fantasy owners, considering that his inconsistent play this year has resulted in a poor 3.10 GAA.

Forgettable Night For Ottawa, Anderson

News: Craig Anderson allowed seven goals on 23 shots in Friday's 7-4 loss to Montreal, his second consecutive loss.
Analysis: To say things went poorly for Ottawa is a gross understatement, as the Sens squandered a 3-0 first period lead. This was not one of Craig Anderson's finer performances as the Sens didn't allow many shots in the loss. It's hard to endorse a goalie for the Senators considering both Anderson and Lehner have had nights like this one.

Ottawa To Start Anderson On Friday

News: Craig Anderson will draw the start in goal Friday against the Canadiens, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson is 2-1 in his three starts since returning from an undisclosed injury, recording save percentages above .925 on each occasion. He continues to work feverishly to whittle his GAA below 3.00 on the season, and he could finally go under the mark with a solid performance against Montreal.

Sens' Anderson Stops 25 In Loss

News: Craig Anderson allowed two goals on 27 shots in Wednesday's loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: Craig Anderson was solid in net, but the Islanders broke through twice on the power play to walk away with the 2-1 win. Anderson is now 23-15-8 on the season with a .910 save percentage and a 3.02 GAA.

Sens' Anderson Will Start Wednesday

News: Craig Anderson will start in net Wednesday against the Islanders, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson has put together a pretty solid season, going 23-14-8 despite allowing the fourth-most goals in the NHL this season. He's fresh off wins over the Blackhawks and Hurricanes, and will look to stay hot Wednesday against the Islanders.

Senators' Anderson Stops 30 In Win

News: Craig Anderson made 30 saves on 31 shots in a shootout win over the Hurricanes on Monday.
Analysis: Craig Anderson's last three results have been wins, but he's been letting in the goals still, and his GAA remains 3.04 on the year.

Craig Anderson

Sens Turn To Anderson On Monday

News: Craig Anderson is slated to start Monday's game against the Hurricanes, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson -- who earned a win over Chicago in his return to action Friday -- is in line to be back in the Ottawa net Monday after giving way to Robin Lehner in Sunday's win over the Flames.

Craig Anderson

Anderson, Senators Win Friday

News: Craig Anderson stopped 46 of 49 shots in Friday's 5-3 win over Ottawa, his first game since March 10, a span of almost three weeks.
Analysis: Allowing 49 shots against one of the league's best teams isn't a recipe for continued success, but Craig Anderson did enough on Friday to secure a win for the struggling Sens. Ottawa's play of late hasn't inspired confidence in employing Robin Lehner or Anderson. Expect Anderson to see most of Ottawa's starts going forward, for what it's worth.

Sens' Anderson (Undisclosed) In Net On Friday

News: Craig Anderson (undisclosed) will be between the pipes for the Senators on Friday, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson has been out since Mar. 10 with an injury the team wasn't willing to reveal. In his absence, Robin Lehner has struggled his way through the month of March. Anderson himself hasn't been super impressive with a 3.10 GAA and .908 save percentage, but the Senators will likely be happy to have their starting goaltender in net for the first time in a few weeks.

Sens' Anderson Says He'll Be Back Friday

News: Craig Anderson (undisclosed) said he would be available Friday against the Blackhawks, TSN's Brent Wallace reports.
Analysis: Coach Paul MacLean hasn't named a starter for Friday's game yet, but expect Craig Anderson to get the nod with backup Robin Lehner struggling to keep the Senators afloat during Anderson's absence. Anderson and his 3.10 GAA and .908 save percentage won't provide much of an antidote to Ottawa's woes on the back end, but he should at least give the team a fighting chance as they attempt to keep their fleeting playoff hopes alive.

Sens' Anderson A Full Participant At Morning Skate

News: Craig Anderson (undisclosed) was a full participant at Monday's morning skate.
Analysis: Andrew Hammond's demotion to AHL Binghamton earlier in the day suggests that the goalie will back up Robin Lehner during Monday's game against the Lightning. The Senators still remain tight-lipped about the extent of Craig Anderson's injury, but it doesn't look as though he's too far away from resuming starting duties.

Sens' Anderson Likely To Miss Next Two

News: Craig Anderson (undisclosed) will likely miss at least the Sens' next two games, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: The circumstances surrounding Craig Anderson's injury remain entirely unclear, and there's really no telling when the goalie might return to action. Meanwhile, with Anderson out of the lineup, the Senators have fallen further out of the Eastern Conference playoff race behind backup Robin Lehner. Ottawa has dropped its last five games.

Sens' Anderson Still Not Ready

News: Craig Anderson (undisclosed) won't be ready to return until Thursday at best, reports Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun.
Analysis: Craig Anderson's missed two games already, and it appears he'll also miss Tuesday's tilt with the Rangers. Robin Lehner and Nathan Lawson will continue to cover for Anderson until he's good to go.

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson Likely Not Ready To Play Saturday

News: Friday's recall of Nathan Lawson suggests the Senators don't feel Craig Anderson will be available for Saturday's game vs. the Canadiens.
Analysis: The exact nature of Craig Anderson's injury remains something of a mystery, but he apparently needs some additional recovery time. Fantasy owners need not panic about a lengthy absence yet, but if Anderson remains sidelined through next week, it may make sense to grab understudy Robin Lehner if he's still available on waivers.

Senators' Anderson Leaves Game With Injury

News: Craig Anderson made 26 saves on 29 shots before colliding with Milan Michalek and having to leave the game Monday against the Predators.
Analysis: Craig Anderson's status is unknown at the moment. Robin Lehner will start going forward if Anderson is unable to go.

Sens' Anderson Draws Nod Monday

News: Craig Anderson will get the start in goal Monday against the Predators, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson is coming off a magnificent showing Saturday against the Jets, totaling 46 saves in the 5-3 victory. He's been handed the last four starts in the net for the Senators, and it sounds like for better or worse, coach Paul MacLean plans to stick with him as his No. 1 goalie over the young but talented Robin Lehner.

Sens' Anderson Posts 46 Saves In Win

News: Craig Anderson made 46 saves in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Jets.
Analysis: He fell just one save shy of tying his own franchise record for most saves in a regular season victory. As the goalie on one of the NHL's poorer teams in terms of puck possession, Craig Anderson will likely be battered with shots on most nights. While this increases his value in leagues that reward save totals, it's somewhat of a double-edged sword in the sense that he'll surrender a fair share of goals as well.

Sens' Anderson Starting Saturday

News: Craig Anderson will start Saturday's game in Winnipeg.
Analysis: Craig Anderson will start for the fourth game in a row, after surrendering four goals on 28 shots in Wednesday's loss to the Flames. The Sens haven't been playing well lately, but the same is true of Saturday's opponent in Winnipeg.

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson Stops 24 In Loss

News: Craig Anderson allowed four goals on 28 shots in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Flames.
Analysis: Craig Anderson has been decent this year, but the Sens were counting on him to play more like he did in 2013 when he led the league in save percentage and GAA. He has now dropped three of his last four starts, and will need to turn things around if Ottawa wants to grab a playoff spot in the East.

Sens Roll With Anderson On Wednesday

News: Craig Anderson is slated to start Wednesday's game against the Flames, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson, who allowed three goals on 30 shots in Tuesday's loss to Edmonton, will try to bounce back Wednesday against a Flames team that will counter with Joni Ortio in goal in the wake of the team's trade of Reto Berra to the Avs.
