    Senators' Craig Anderson: Netminder's decent season ends with no playoffs

    Anderson finished the 2015-16 year with a 31-23-5 record to go along with a 2.78 GAA and .916 save percentage in 60 appearances. Anderson picked up his highest win total since the 2011-12 season, but unfortunately, it wasn't enough to lead the Sens to the playoffs. The 34-year-old netminder (and Andrew Hammond) consistently gave up the first goal -- 51 times to be exact -- which buried Ottawa early and often, especially down the stretch. A bounce-back campaign should be in the works, and expect Anderson to keep ahold of the starting job between the pipes.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Tames Panthers in win

    Anderson stopped 33 of 34 shots en route to a 3-1 win over the Panthers on Thursday. The Panthers came into the game winners of four straight, but Anderson put a stop to that after turning aside all but one. Anderson has now won two straight games after losing three in a row prior. The 34-year-old will look to finish out his season on a high note, should he be making the start, against the Bruins on April 9.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Tending twine Thursday

    Anderson will guard the cage Thursday as the Senators host the Panthers. Anderson has recently given way to Andrew Hammond in net, but will return between the pipes Thursday to face a Panthers club having won their last four games. The 34-year-old netminder will look to build on his last outing March 31 when he picked up his 30th victory of the campaign by stopping 23 of the 25 shots sent his way, and his 18-7-4 record with a 2.22 GAA and .929 save percentage at home certainly gives him a shot at doing so.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Cools off Wild with solid outing

    Anderson stopped the streaking Wild, allowing only two goals on 25 shots in a 3-2 win. Anderson was able to stop a streak of his own, as the netminder came into Thursday's matchup losing his last three outings. While the Sens are officially eliminated from playoff contention, the 34-year-old obviously isn't ready to bow out of his disappointing campaign. Anderson picked up win No. 30, but his 2.81 GAA and .915 save percentage is simply not good enough and he'll look to improve those averages before season's end.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Set to Face Minnesota on Thursday

    Anderson is slated to start Thursday's game against the Wild, Brent Wallace of TSN reports. In advance of the team's upcoming back-to-back set, goaltending coach Rick Wamsley relayed Tuesday that the Sens' plan is to have Andrew Hammond start Wednesday in Winnipeg, while Anderson will get the nod Thursday in Minnesota. Anderson has dropped three straight decisions, allowing 10 goals in the process, while the Wild are currently on a five-game roll.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Implodes in third period, can't steal overtime win

    Anderson allowed four goals on 39 shots in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to Anaheim. Anderson simply imploded in this one -- the netminder was nursing a 3-0 lead going into the third period. Unfortunately, it's what you've come to expect from the 34-year-old at this point in his campaign, as he's now lost three straight and continues into a downward spiral (along with the Sens). Anderson sports a pedestrian 2.82 GAA and .915 save percentage on the year, leaving it hard to trust him as we near the end of the season.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Confirmed to start Saturday

    Anderson will tend twine at home Saturday night against the Ducks. The writing was on the wall that Anderson would get the starting nod since he was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate. A 12-year veteran, Anderson is looking for his 30th win of the season in 58 starts. He hasn't hit that mark since the 2011-12 campaign, when he put up 33 victories, also with the Sens.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: On track to start Saturday

    Anderson was the first netminder off the ice at morning skate Saturday, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports, making him likely to start against the Ducks later in the evening. Anderson has played poorly this month, winning just two of five games and posting a 3.05 GAA in six starts. Since he's likely to face a strong Ducks team that has already carved out a spot in the playoffs, we recommend finding alternatives in daily formats Saturday. That shouldn't be a tough venture with 14 games on tap.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Allows three goals in loss

    Anderson was beat three times on 21 shots in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to Washington. Facing a potent Washington team, Anderson really struggled out of the gate, allowing three goals in the first period. However, he settled down and kept the puck out of the back of the net for the remainder of the game. T.J. Oshie added an empty-net goal at the end of the game. Anderson has now lost two straight games, and three of his last five.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Tuesday start on tap

    Anderson will start Tuesday's home game against the Capitals. Meanwhile, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun relays that there is a "pretty good chance" that Andrew Hammond -- who blanked Montreal in Saturday's 5-0 win -- will man the Sens' net Wednesday on the road against the Islanders. Anderson will square off Tuesday against a Washington squad that was thumped by Pittsburgh by a 6-2 score Sunday.
