  • Senators' Craig Anderson: Wins Masterton Trophy

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/21/17) Anderson (back) was awarded the Bill Masterton Trophy at Wednesday's NHL Awards for his perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication during a difficult 2016-17 season.

    Anderson appeared in just 40 games for the Senators, but he was outstanding during his limited appearances, finishing with a 25-11-4 record, 2.28 GAA and .926 save percentage. His .941 save percentage at even strength was the best in the league, ahead of Sergei Bobrosvky and well ahead of Jennings Trophy winner Braden Holtby. Anderson was supposed to take an extended leave of absence when his wife, Nicholle, was diagnosed with throat cancer right before the season, but he was pressed into action in late October when Andrew Hammond suffered a groin injury. He then took two months off between December and February to care for his wife, but made a triumphant return with a 33-save shutout against the Islanders before winning eight of his next 10 games and ultimately backstopping the Sens to the Eastern Conference finals.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Stops 39 in double-overtime elimination

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/26/17) 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: Steals Game 6 with 45 stops

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/23/17) 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.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Looking to rebound in Game 6

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/23/17) 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.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Plays sieve in Game 5, gets pulled

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/21/17) 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.
