Senators' Craig Anderson: Likely to start Tuesday before personal leave

Anderson is expected to get the starting nod Tuesday night against the visiting Sabres, TSN's Brent Wallace reports.

Per Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, Anderson will soon leave the team to be with his wife, Nicholle, who is battling cancer; the team has recalled Andrew Hammond from AHL Binghamton accordingly. For now, though, he draws a favorable matchup against Buffalo's struggling offense. Anderson has been spectacular this season, fashioning 12 wins to complement a 2.03 GAA and .936 save mark in 17 games, good for top-10 ranks in all those categories.
