  • Anderson made 39 saves in Thursday's 3-2 double-overtime Game 7 loss to the Penguins. Anderson was once again far busier than counterpart Matt Murray, who faced just 29 shots. While he did a terrific job of shutting down Pittsburgh's top forwards, Anderson surrendered two goals and an assist to the 37-year-old Chris Kunitz, of all people. His 2.34 GAA and .922 save percentage in 19 playoff games came tantalizingly close to earning a Stanley Cup Finals berth, but the 36-year-old veteran will end up a spectator just like everyone who doesn't play for the Penguins or Predators.

  • Senators' Craig Anderson: Starting Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Anderson won't alter his preparation heading into Thursday's Game 7 matchup with Pittsburgh, TSN 1200 reports. Anderson made an astonishing 45 of a possible 46 saves Tuesday, stonewalling the Pens in order to force this Game 7 contest. The veteran netminder is 5-4 with a 2.43 GAA on the road this postseason, so fantasy owners probably shouldn't expect much of a decline in form. There's little doubt that the outcome of Thursday's clash will largely depend on whether the 36-year-old can keep stars Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel off the scoresheet.

  • Anderson made 45 saves in Tuesday's 2-1 Game 6 win over the Penguins. Pittsburgh carried play with a 46-30 shot advantage, including a 23-10 edge in the second period, but Anderson outplayed Matt Murray to send this series to a deciding Game 7. While his lone blemish came on an Evgeni Malkin tally 4:51 into the second, the veteran netminder also stopped six shot attempts apiece by Malkin and Sidney Crosby en route to his highest save total of these playoffs. He'll have to shine once again for Ottawa to upset the defending Stanley Cup champs on the road.

  • Anderson will defend the goal for Tuesday night's elimination game against the Penguins. Anderson's poor showing in Game 5 seemed to be just a classic case of an off day coming at a very bad time, and much the same can be said for the rest of the Senators, as the 7-0 loss put them in the brink of elimination. That said, as pointed out by AJ Jakubec of TSN 1200, teams that have lost by four-plus goals in this year's playoffs are 4-1 in their next game. Obviously, that's no guarantee that Anderson and his team will be able to shake off that humiliating loss, but they clearly aren't buried yet.

  • Anderson was pulled twice Sunday in a 7-0 Game 5 loss to Pittsburgh. He was pulled for one shift in the first period, returned, and was replaced for good to start the second. He allowed four goals on 10 shots. It was an ugly night for the entire squad -- Anderson got no help in the game. He'll be fine for Game 6.
