  • Senators' Anders Nilsson: Wins in overtime

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12:48 am ET) Nilsson made 23 saves in a 4-3 overtime win over the Jets on Saturday.

    Nilsson had lost two straight, so this was a nice bounce back. It was actually a light night for the twinetender -- he typically faces more than 40 shots a night. Nilsson is 6-6 with a 2.44 GAA and .930 save percentage in Canada's capital. He's doing everything he can to earn a new contract with the Sens this offseason.

    Senators' Anders Nilsson: Draws start in Winnipeg

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/16/19) Nilsson will cover the cage on the road against the Jets on Saturday, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    Nilsson will draw his fifth consecutive start for an Ottawa team that remains in the basement of the Atlantic Division standings at 21-31-5. The Swede has been deployed so heavily of late as the result of an eye injury to traditional starter Craig Anderson. Nilsson's next challenger is a Winnipeg team that ranks sixth in the league offensively (3.40 goals per game), despite Patrik Laine having gone 13 straight contests without a goal.

    Senators' Anders Nilsson: Struggles in defeat to Detroit

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/15/19) Nilsson made 26 saves on 29 shots Thursday, taking a 3-2 loss to the Red Wings.

    Nilsson has now posted sub-par games in back-to-back contests against mediocre opponents in Carolina and Detroit, which makes a recent great night against Winnipeg look like an outlier, and his shutout of the Ducks having more to do with the Ducks' ineptitude than his own play. With those same Jets looking to even the score Saturday, Nilsson isn't a recommended fantasy option, assuming he's even tabbed as the starter for that game.

    Senators' Anders Nilsson: Goes south in third

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/13/19) Nilsson conceded four goals in the third period and finished with 33 saves on 37 shots in a 4-1 loss to Carolina on Tuesday.

    It looked like Nilsson was going to pull off another stellar performance after two periods, but things fell apart for the Senators as they so often have this year. While unspectacular, Nilsson has been serviceable more often than not this year, and his value mostly comes in daily leagues, where he can usually be had at a cheap price.

    Senators' Anders Nilsson: Will start versus Hurricanes

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/11/19) Nilsson has been announced as the starter for Tuesday's home game versus Carolina, Brent Wallace of TSN.ca reports.

    Nilsson has won back-to-back starts, including a shutout versus Anaheim back on Feb. 7. He and the Senators will hope to slow down the Hurricanes, who are 6-3-1 in their last 10 games. Ottawa is 4-6-0 in its last 10 and is last in the Atlantic Division, but Guy Boucher's team has won back-to-back contests.
