    Senators' Craig Anderson: Will field pucks from Buds on Saturday

    Anderson will start in goal Saturday night, taking on the Maple Leafs in front of the home crowd. Anderson was lit up by the Penguins and Oilers in his first two starts this month, yielding 13 goals combined and losing both games. On paper, Anderson's draw against the Buds on Saturday seems slightly favorable. After all, Toronto is 27th in goals per game and 21st in goals-against, but it's worth noting that the Maple Leafs have won two straight and edged a competitive Bruins team just this past Tuesday. With 12 games on the slate Saturday, you're bound to find a more attractive goalie play than Anderson.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Chased early by Oilers

    Anderson lasted just 11:41 into Thursday's game against Edmonton, giving up three goals on 10 shots in an eventual 7-2 loss. This makes three consecutive losses for Anderson, who's been tagged for a cool dozen goals in that span. He's been pulled early on twice in his last five starts and has a save percentage under .900 over his last 10. All that considered, backup Andrew Hammond would be primed to take over, except that he's been no better, including giving up four goals in relief Thursday.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Receives start Thursday

    Anderson will start in goal Thursday against the Oilers, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports. Anderson's first start of the second half left much to be desired, allowing six goals on 44 shots against the Penguins to drop his record to 20-16-4 on the season. Despite the effort, the Senators will turn his way again Thursday against an Oilers club that's been surprisingly productive away from home this season, averaging 3.19 goals per game.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: In net Tuesday

    Anderson will protect the net on Tuesday at Pittsburgh. Anderson gave up three goals on 22 shots faced in a loss to Buffalo in his last start Jan 26. The 34-year-old veteran netminder has compiled a 20-15-4 record this season with a .915 save percentage and 2.81 GAA. He draws a matchup against a Penguins team Tuesday that is currently tied for fourth place in the Metropolitan Division. Anderson faced Pittsburgh once earlier this season, giving up two goals on 36 shots in a loss Oct. 15.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Stops 19 in home loss to Sabres

    Anderson gave up three goals on 22 shots Tuesday in a 3-2 loss to visiting Buffalo. Despite a shutout against the Rangers two days prior to this outing, Anderson heads into the All-Star break on a down note -- he's given up three or more goals in five of his last six starts. With Anderson's difficulties getting on (and staying on) a roll, Andrew Hammond would have a chance to work his way into a bigger role, but Hammond has struggled as well. That leaves the Sens in a funny spot as the trade deadline continues approaching -- they're not far out of a playoff spot, but with neither goalie getting it done, they may need to make a trade to create some positive momentum in net.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Gets starting nod against Sabres

    Anderson will protect the net on Monday against Buffalo. Anderson was perfect in his last outing, stopping everything the Rangers could throw at him. It was the third win in the netminder's last five contests, despite recording a 3.25 GAA over that stretch. The 34-year-old opened the season against the Sabres, allowing a mere one goal on 27 shots.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Perfect in earning shutout

    Anderson stopped all 35 shots he faced in Sunday's win over the Rangers. It was a huge bounce-back performance for Anderson, as he entered the contest having allowed 14 goals total in his last four starts. The 34-year-old has largely been inconsistent on the season with three shutouts and 20 wins but also sporting a 2.80 GAA as he continues to see the majority of starts over Andrew Hammond.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Starting Sunday

    Anderson will be in the crease for Sunday's tilt with the Rangers. Anderson will be looking to bounce back from Thursday's debacle in New Jersey, where he allowed four goals on seven shots. The Rangers will be without Rick Nash, which bodes well for Anderson's fantasy prospects. That being said, Anderson and his 2.88 GAA have been nowhere near consistent enough to be relied upon in fantasy this season.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Pulled from game

    After surrendering four goals on seven shots, Anderson was pulled 14 minutes into Tuesday's 6-3 loss to New Jersey. After a tough week, everything came to a head for Anderson, who has surrendered at least three goals in four straight games. Despite the American netminder's struggles, the defense has left him to dry and has allowed 30 shots in four of his last five starts. After Anderson's rather embarrassing first-period meltdown, expect Andrew Hammond to see the crease sooner rather than later.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: To start in goal Thursday

    Anderson will get the start in goal on Thursday against the Devils. With three games in four days, Anderson gets the call for the first game against the Devils. He's 19-13-4 with a 2.79 GAA and a .916 save percentage, but has managed to hold off Andrew Hammond for full control of the starting job. Despite going 2-1 in his last three starts, he's given up three or more goals in each on the team's West Coast swing.
