Craig Anderson

Sens Going With Anderson On Friday

News: Craig Anderson will make the start in the crease Friday against the Ducks, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson came through with a much-needed shutout Wednesday against the Devils, which followed a three-game stretch where he surrendered 10 goals. While his hold on the No. 1 job remains tenuous, Anderson can carry some value when the matchup favors him. It doesn't appear that will be the case Friday against a superior Ducks squad.

Sens' Anderson Earns Shutout Wednesday

News: Craig Anderson recorded a 34 save shutout in Wednesday's 2-0 win over the Devils.
Analysis: The Senators only mustered 16 total shots on the night, but Craig Anderson was spectacular in their own end, backstopping the team to victory. He's still considered the starter in Ottawa, but backup Robin Lehner is always a threat to take over the gig if Anderson starts to falter.

Craig Anderson

Senators' Anderson Will Start Wednesday

News: Craig Anderson will be in goal for Wednesday's game against the Devils.
Analysis: Craig Anderson has struggled mightily of late giving up fewer than three goals just once in his last 10 starts and winning just twice over that span. He will face a New Jersey squad that has similarly struggled of late, winning just three times since Nov. 14.

Sens' Anderson Tagged For Four In Loss

News: Craig Anderson was touched up for four goals on 35 shots in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Kings.
Analysis: Although he still owns strong rate stats for the season, Anderon has now taken a painful seven losses (six of them in regulation) over his last eight starts, and he's only allowed fewer than three goals one time in his last 10 starts. Although the Ottawa offense and defense have largely been more to blame than Craig Anderson this year, look for the Sens to try to change the formula by giving Robin Lehner (who was just activated from IR) another shot soon -- perhaps Saturday in Boston.

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson To Get Start Thursday

News: Craig Anderson will be in the net Thursday against the Kings, Ian Mendes of TSN 1200 reports.
Analysis: Though the Senators now have Robin Lehner (knee) back from injured reserve, interim coach Dave Cameron will give Craig Anderson another spin. While he's been forced to take on an increased workload of late while Lehner was unavailable, Anderson has at least provided the Senators will passable -- if unspectacular -- results. He's surrendered exactly three goals in four of his last five turns.

Sens' Anderson Makes 30 Saves In Win Over Canucks

News: Craig Anderson finally won a game Sunday, stopping 30 of 33 shots in a victory over Vancouver.
Analysis: A much needed win for Craig Anderson, who had lost six straight games. The 33-year-old is now 6-7-4 on the season with a .927 save percentage and 2.50 GAA. With Robin Lehner (undisclosed) nearing a return, Anderson may lose some playing time in the near-future. Anderson remains an elite fantasy option, but wins are hard to come on a Senators team sitting 10th in the Eastern Conference.

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson To Start On Sunday

News: Craig Anderson will be between the pipes on Sunday against the Canucks, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: With Robin Lehner unavailable, Craig Anderson will take the net for the second of back-to-back games after starting Saturday also. Anderson has lost six straight starts, though he did record 30 saves in Saturday's loss to the Penguins.

Craig Anderson, G, OTT Sens' Anderson Takes Close Loss Saturday

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson Takes Close Loss Saturday

News: Craig Anderson stopped 30 of 33 shots in Saturday's loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: Craig Anderson has now taken defeats in his last six turns, dropping him to 5-7-4 for the season. He hasn't been terrible during that span, with save percentages above .900 in four of those six outings, but it will be difficult to roll him with much confidence until the Senators provide him with some more offensive support.

12/5/2014

Craig Anderson, G, OTT Sens' Anderson Will Start Saturday

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson Will Start Saturday

News: Craig Anderson will be in the net Saturday against the Penguins, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson will make the first of what could be back-to-back starts over the weekend, as Robin Lehner (undisclosed) is unavailable, and it's uncertain if coach Paul MacLean would be willing to turn to inexperienced backup Andrew Hammond for Sunday's game against the Canucks. Though he lost his fifth straight game Thursday versus the Islanders, Anderson turned in a decent effort, stopping 23 of 25 shots.

Craig Anderson

Anderson, Sens Fall To Isles

News: Craig Anderson gave up two goals on 25 shots in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: He matched Jaroslav Halak evenly through most of the game, but gave up a goal to Casey Cizikas with just 6:27 left in the third period, which was enough to sink the Senators. That's five consecutive losses for Craig Anderson now -- four of them in regulation.

Craig Anderson, G, OTT

Craig Anderson

Sens Will Start Anderson On Thursday

News: Craig Anderson will be between the pipes Thursday against the Islanders, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: With Robin Lehner nursing an injury and apparently unavailable, the Senators will have no choice but to hand the start to Craig Anderson, who has dropped four straight. He still owns a sparkling .930 save percentage, but his defense is still forcing him to handle far too many shots most nights.

12/3/2014

Craig Anderson, G, OTT Sens' Anderson Drops Fourth Straight

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson Drops Fourth Straight

News: Craig Anderson took his fourth consecutive loss Tuesday against the Islanders, giving up three goals on 28 shots to take a 3-2 overtime defeat.
Analysis: Craig Anderson had a solid stat line going before Thomas Hickey's goal 3:06 into overtime ended things, so that's a positive takeaway. However, he's given up either three or four goals in six consecutive starts now, and he's won only once in that span.

12/2/2014

Craig Anderson, G, OTT Sens To Start Anderson On Tuesday

Craig Anderson

Sens To Start Anderson On Tuesday

News: Craig Anderson will be in the net Tuesday against the Islanders, Dean Brown of Rogers Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson has been given up at least three goals in five straight starts, but his defense hasn't exactly done him many favors. He's faced an average of 37.5 shots per game during that span, and while it's helped him increase his raw save totals, his ratios have taken a hit as a result. Things might not get better for him against an Islanders squad that is averaging 33 shots per contest, good for third in the league.

Sens' Anderson Stands Tall In Loss to Panthers

News: Craig Anderson was outstanding Friday, stopping 43 of 46 shots but took the loss as the Sens fell 3-2 to the Panthers.
Analysis: It was a tough pill to swallow for Craig Anderson, who now has just a single win in his last six appearances. Despite the solid outing, expect the Sens to turn to backup Robin Lehner for the second of back-to-back games Saturday against the Lightning.

11/27/2014

Craig Anderson, G, OTT

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson To Get Nod Friday

News: Craig Anderson will be in the crease Friday against the Panthers.
Analysis: Craig Anderson has watched Robin Lehner assume the bulk of the starting duties for the Senators over the last couple of weeks, and didn't do much to help his cause by allowing four goals to the Red Wings in his last time out Monday. Perhaps receiving the starting nod against his former squad -- and an offensively-challenged one, at that -- will be exactly what he needs to win back the Ottawa net.

11/25/2014

Craig Anderson, G, OTT

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson Plays Well In Loss

News: Craig Anderson stopped 39 of 43 shots, but it wasn't enough in a 4-3 loss to the Red Wings on Monday.
Analysis: Craig Anderson gave it a valiant effort in trying to steal a win for the Sens, but their comeback bid was spoiled with a last-second glove save by Wings goalie Jimmy Howard. Rather ridiculously, Anderson has now faced 30 or more shots in 11 of 12 starts this year, posting a highly impressive .932 save percentage along the way. The amount of rubber coming in his direction, coupled with the fact that Ottawa sometimes has a hard time producing offensively, has amounted to a mediocre 5-4-3 record for Anderson thus far.

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson Starting Monday

News: Craig Anderson will start in net Monday against the Red Wings.
Analysis: Robin Lehner got the call in the last two games for the Sens, but Craig Anderson will get a chance to reclaim his crease Monday. Anderson is 5-3-3 on the season with a .935 save percentage and a 2.23 GAA.

11/16/2014

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson Can't Put Out Flames In Loss

News: Craig Anderson allowed four goals on 25 shots in Saturday's loss to the Flames.
Analysis: Not a good night for Craig Anderson, who has now dropped three of his last four games. The 33-year-old is now 5-3-2 on the season with an impressive .935 save percentage and 2.23 GAA. Although he had an off night Saturday, he has been terrific this season, meaning we can expect Anderson to continue to see the majority of starts in the Sens' crease. He needs to be in your lineup whenever he is playing.

Craig Anderson

Senators Roll With Anderson Saturday

News: Craig Anderson will start between the pipes against the Flames on Saturday.
Analysis: Saturday's start will be Craig Anderson's third straight, winning his last in overtime against the Oilers on Thursday. He will ride a 5-2-3 record, 2.05 GAA and .942 save percentage into Saturday's matchup.

Anderson, Sens Fight Off Oilers In OT

News: Craig Anderson blew a 3-1 lead in the third period Thursday, but ended up holding on for a 4-3 overtime win over the Oilers.
Analysis: The third consecutive overtime game for Craig Anderson, this one had a happier ending than the prior two. He continues to post strong rate stats, making him a strong fantasy roll whenever the Sens put him between the pipes.

11/13/2014

Craig Anderson, G, OTT

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson To Start Thursday

News: Craig Anderson was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and will receive the starting nod Thursday against the Oilers, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Despite a rough showing during an overtime loss to the Canucks on Tuesday, Craig Anderson will earn his fifth starting nod in six games. Tuesday's effort looks to be only a minor blip for Anderson, as it was just the second time he's posted a sub-.900 save percentage in his nine starts this season.

11/12/2014

Craig Anderson, G, OTT

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson Takes Fall In OT

News: Craig Anderson gave up four goals on 37 shots Tuesday in an overtime loss to Vancouver.
Analysis: That's two overtime losses in a row for Craig Anderson, though he was better in the one against Winnipeg on Saturday. Still, this is just the second time all year that Anderson's posted a save percentage under .900.

11/12/2014

Craig Anderson, G, OTT Sens Turn To Anderson On Tuesday

Craig Anderson

Sens Turn To Anderson On Tuesday

News: Craig Anderson will be between the pipes Tuesday against the Canucks.
Analysis: After Robin Lehner was trounced for five goals Sunday against Toronto, Craig Anderson looks like he'll be the Senators' go-to option in the net for the foreseeable future, and for good reason. He's posted a .951 save percentage and 1.72 GAA over eight outings this season, both of which rank in the top five among all goalies.

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson Falls Short Saturday

News: Craig Anderson turned away 36 of 37 shots but fell in a shootout to the Jets on Saturday.
Analysis: Though Craig Anderson wasn't able to extend his winning streak to three games Saturday, he can hold his head up high after another astounding showing in defeat. The goalie has surrendered just two goals over his last three starts, supplying a superb .980 save percentage during that time.

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson Confirmed To Start

News: Craig Anderson has been confirmed as the Sens' starting goalie for their tilt Saturday with Winnipeg, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson has dominated the Jets throughout his career, going 11-2-2 with a 2.51 GAA and .932 save percentage in 16 games. In light of his career success and home-ice advantage, look for Anderson to enter Saturday's contest as the favorite to come away with the victory.
