Dennis Seidenberg scores from center ice (video)

Craig Anderson has been a pleasant surprise for the Ottawa Senators this season as the veteran goaltender has helped backstop their surprising playoff push.

Tuesday night in Boston, however, did not provide one of his best (or luckiest) moments of the season during a 4-3 loss to the Bruins.

Just minutes after a Brad Marchand power play goal tied the game at three for Boston, defenseman Dennis Seidenberg scored what proved to be the game-winner as he stepped up to the red line and blasted an innocent looking slap shot from center ice. And somehow, it found a way to sneak past Anderson for a goal that he would no doubt love to have back.



There's really nothing else you can do there but chalk a lot of that up to luck. Good luck for the Bruins; bad luck for the Senators.

"I don't know if it was a lucky bounce or the way it came off of my stick," Seidenberg said. "It just seemed to bounce off the ice and kind of was rising up and it was tough to read I guess for him and somehow it went in."

Said Anderson, "It took a one-bouncer and it hit my stick and went in. Just one of those things where I've got to make the save but, at the same time it took a crazy bounce."

reminiscent of nick lidstrom on dan cloutier, hopefully anderson bounces back better. that shot was the beginning of the end of cloutiers career.
