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.

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.

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.

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.

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, G, OTT Sens' Anderson Falls Short Saturday

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.

Craig Anderson, G, OTT Sens' Anderson Expected To Start

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson Expected To Start

News: Craig Anderson is expected to start in goal Saturday against the Jets, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson is doing his best to demonstrate that his breakout performance during the 2012-13 lockout-shortened season wasn't a fluke, as he's currently sitting on a 1.84 GAA and .948 save percentage over seven outings. Backup Robin Lehner has performed similarly well this season to remain a factor in the goalie timeshare, but Anderson seems to be coach Paul MacLean's preferred option. He's allowed just one goal combined over his last two games against quality opponents in the Wild and Red Wings, making him an excellent fantasy option against the Jets at home.

Sens' Anderson Stops 35 To Shut Out Wild

News: Craig Anderson stopped all 35 shots the Wild threw his way Thursday to bring home a 3-0 victory.
Analysis: Don't look now, but Craig Anderson's quietly been one of the NHL's best goalies in the early going. He's posted save marks of .919 or better in five of his seven starts this season, and he's got a pair of shutouts already -- halfway to last year's total already. Sure, the Wild were without Zach Parise, but it all counts the same on Anderson's stat line.

Craig Anderson

Senators' Anderson Set To Start Thursday

News: Craig Anderson is in line to start Thursday's game against the Wild, according to Wayne Scanlan of The Ottawa Citizen.
Analysis: Craig Anderson was the first goalie off the ice following Thursday's morning skate, which puts him on track to be in the crease Thursday night. He will take on a Minnesota squad that is fourth in the NHL in goals per game but will be playing without top point scorer Zach Parise (upper body) on Thursday.

Sens' Anderson Holds Red Wings To One Goal In Win

News: Craig Anderson captured the victory in Tuesday's start against the Red Wings, holding the opposition to one goal on 32 shots.
Analysis: Craig Anderson kept Detroit off the board for the first two periods before his shutout bid was foiled with 17:26 remaining in the game. The netminder clamped down after that, making an especially impressive save on Tomas Jurco to deny a potential game-winner after teammate Erik Karlsson turned over the puck. After a disappointing 2013-14 campaign, Anderson has turned the corner to start the new season, owning a shiny 2.15 GAA and .939 save percentage over his six outings.

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson Will Start Tuesday

News: Craig Anderson will start in net Tuesday against the Red Wings, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson has dropped his last two starts, but continues to split time with Robin Lehner as the team's starter. Anderson has played well, but will this year, and will need to continue to play well since the Sens are giving up the most shots per game in the league.

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson Allows Four, Loses In Shootout

News: Craig Anderson allowed four goals on 39 shots as well as the only tally in the shootout Thursday in a loss to the Blackhawks.
Analysis: This represents the worst start of the young season for the veteran goalie, who'd posted a save mark over .900 in each of his first four outings. Robin Lehner is nipping at his heels for playing time, so Craig Anderson will need to be sharper.

10/30/2014

Craig Anderson, G, OTT

Craig Anderson

Senators' Anderson To Start Thursday

News: Craig Anderson will start Thursday's game against the Blackhawks, TSN's Steve Lloyd reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson will be going against a familiar opponent, as he just faced the Blackhawks on Sunday. He gave up just two goals in that game, but was saddled with the loss, so he'll be looking for both a similar performance and a different result Thursday night.

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson Not Enough In Loss

News: Craig Anderson made 43 saves, including one on a penalty shot, but was still handed the loss in Sunday's 2-1 defeat against the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Making his first appearance in over a week, Craig Anderson did everything he could to deliver a win, but the offense could only muster up a single goal. Anderson is off to a solid start, with a shutout and two wins in four games, but backup Robin Lehner has also been strong between the pipes for Ottawa so he may be forced to share time going forward.

Senators Starting Anderson Sunday

News: Craig Anderson will start for the Senators on Sunday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson was slated to start Wednesday's contest before it was postponed. He will make his fourth start of the season Sunday, and will look to improve on his 2-1-0 record and 2.01 GAA and .939 save percentage.

Craig Anderson

Wednesday's Game Postponed For Anderson, Sens

News: Updating a previous report, Craig Anderson will not start Wednesday after the NHL decided to postpone the Maple Leafs-Senators game in light of the ongoing crisis in Ottawa, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: Multiple gunmen reportedly fired shots Wednesday morning in the downtown area of the Canadian capital, with one shooter dead and possibly one or more still at large. With several government buildings on lockdown, safety will understandably take greater precedence than proceeding with the game as scheduled. The NHL has yet to announce a make-up date for the postponed contest.

Sens' Anderson On Track To Start Wednesday

News: Craig Anderson will be in the net for Wednesday's home tilt against the Maple Leafs, if the game is played as scheduled, Nicolas St-Pierre of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: Several shooting incidents broke out in downtown Ottawa on Wednesday morning, including a round of gunfire on the Canadian Parliament building. With city officials still attempting to manage the crisis, the NHL could choose to postpone Wednesday's game for a later date. Stay tuned for an announcement in the next few hours.

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson Holds On For Win

News: Craig Anderson smothered 28 of 31 shots in Thursday's win over Washington.
Analysis: Craig Anderson got help from a five-goal offensive outburst Thursday, but he and Robin Lehner can't expect that every night. Anderson's off to a strong start to the year, although it loses some luster if you don't count wins.

Craig Anderson

Senators Go With Anderson On Thursday

News: Craig Anderson will be the starting goaltender in Thursday's game against the Avalanche, Ian Mendes of TSN 1200 reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson will look to stay hot after pitching a shutout against the Panthers in his last start. He'll face a Colorado squad that has lit the lamp just four times through four games, but possesses far more offensive talent than that stat would imply.

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson Blanks Panthers

News: Craig Anderson shut out the Panthers on Monday, turning aside all 30 shots he faced for his first win of the season.
Analysis: Craig Anderson has now stopped 64-of-67 shots in two starts this year and will likely have earned a slight cushion between himself and Robin Lehner for Ottawa's starting gig with this performance. The Sens play again Thursday (Colorado) and Saturday (Columbus) so owners of both Anderson and Lehner should pay close attention to who coach Paul MacLean hands the starters' reins over to as the week progresses.

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson Starting Monday

News: Craig Anderson will start in net Monday against the Panthers, Senators play-by-play broadcaster Dean Brown reports.
Analysis: Backup Robin Lehner picked up the win in Saturday's game against the Lightning, but the Sens will turn back to Craig Anderson for Monday's matchup with the Panthers. Anderson stopped 34 of the 37 shots he faced in his first game, and will need to play well if he wants to avoid losing his starting job to Lehner.

Sens' Anderson Saves 34 In Opening Loss

News: Craig Anderson stopped 34 of 37 shots in Thursday's season-opening defeat at the hands of the Predators.
Analysis: Pekka Rinne wasn't necessarily better on the other end, but Nashville's skaters outshot Ottawa's 37-20, which doesn't do Craig Anderson any favors. He'll probably run out there again Saturday in Tampa Bay.

Craig Anderson

Sens To Start Anderson In Opener

News: Craig Anderson will be the starter for Thursday's opener against the Predators, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson took a huge step back last season with a 3.00 GAA and .911 save percentage, but still managed to provide a 25-16-8 record over his 53 appearances. Even after the disappointing season, the Senators rewarded him with a three-year, $12.6 million extension, which should give him some level of job security over backup Robin Lehner.
