Player News
  • Anderson made 33 saves on 36 shots Tuesday, taking a 3-1 defeat on the road in Nashville. Another night, another heavy workload for the veteran. Anderson has now made at least 30 saves in five consecutive contests, and he's 2-3-0 in that stretch. Even though this was by no means a bad showing, Ottawa simply allows too many pucks to reach the net to make Anderson a reliable option in season-long leagues. He's a matchup-based play against lesser offensive squads, such as Friday against Detroit.

  • Anderson will start Tuesday's road game versus the Predators. It will be Anderson's 27th start of the season and 28th appearance, putting him second in the league behind Marc-Andre Fleury (28 starts). The 37-year-old has been heavily utilized this year, and many would say that Ottawa must do a better job managing the veteran netminder's workload moving forward, or risk burning him out before season's end. Nashville is coming off consecutive losses but remains atop the Central Division with 39 points.

  • Anderson made 35 saves in a 2-1 overtime victory over the Penguins on Saturday night. Anderson was exceptional -- he stoned Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel. But he is just 3-6 in his last nine games and every night continues to be an adventure for Anderson and Ottawa. There are better options for your net.

  • Anderson will defend the home cage in Saturday's clash with the Penguins. Anderson is currently tied (with Marc-Andre Fleury of Vegas) for the NHL lead in games played this season at 26 apiece. In other words, Ottawa's go-to netminder has only been able to rest for three games this season, and he's already seen 936 shots, with Anaheim puck plugger John Gibson the next closest at 824. This next matchup for Anderson should be no walk in the park, as he'll field shots from a Penguins team that ranks no worse than 15th in any of the key offensive team metrics.

  • Anderson allowed four goals on 42 shots in a 5-2 loss to the Canadiens on Thursday. The 37-year-old netminder rarely has an easy night. Over his last three starts, Anderson has seen 117 pucks fired his way, an average of just under 40 per night. His record is now 11-11-3 with a 3.69 GAA and .904 save percentage. Ottawa desperately needs to find a suitable backup to give Anderson a break every now and then.
