Anderson made 28 saves in Saturday's 6-3 win over Toronto. Anderson is now 3-1-3, but he has allowed 11 goals in his last three games. The Sens need to tighten up their defense overall, so expect Anderson's GAA and save percentage to go down with that adjustment.
Anderson will guard the cage in Saturday's home game against Toronto. Anderson has struggled recently, posting an 0-1-1 record while registering an ugly 4.00 GAA and .886 save percentage over his last two appearances. The veteran backstop will look to bounce back Saturday in a brutal matchup with a Maple Leafs squad that's averaging 4.86 goals per game this season, first in the NHL.
Anderson made 41 saves on 46 shots in Thursday's overtime loss to the Devils. Anderson turned in a strong outing, but it wasn't quite good enough, as the Senators dropped a 5-4 decision. The veteran has given up eight goals in back-to-back losses, seeing his save percentage drop to .917 on the season. Anderson is the starter in Ottawa, but with Mike Condon pitching a 36-save shutout in his only start this season, the Sens might be willing to give Anderson some nights off in the near future. Anderson still remains a valuable fantasy asset, however, and is worth inserting into your lineup whenever he gets the call.
Anderson will man the crease for Thursday's matchup with New Jersey. The American netminder has enjoyed a strong start to 2017-18, owning a 1.91 GAA and .926 save percentage, but will face arguably his toughest test of the young season Thursday. The upstart Devils are 5-0-1, are converting 30.8 percent of their opportunities with the man advantage, and are pouring in 4.17 goals per game -- stats that will put some worry into any goalie. Ottawa has taken the second-fewest minor penalties per game this season and will have to continue to stay out of the box to give itself the best chance to come away with a victory.
Anderson surrendered three goals on 24 shots in Tuesday's 3-0 loss to the Canucks. Anderson saw eight fewer shots than Vancouver counterpart Anders Nilsson, but was beaten once in each period while Nilsson stopped every shot he faced. This was Anderson's first regulation loss in five starts, and he has a stellar 1.91 GAA and .926 save percentage, so keep trotting the veteran netminder out there with confidence.
