  • Senators' Anders Nilsson: Steps up against Avalanche

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3:10 am ET) Nilsson stopped 32 of 34 shots Wednesday, helping his team earn a 5-2 win over Colorado.

    Nilsson's solid play against Pacific Division foes has apparently now extended to the rest of the Western Conference, as he turned in his third game in four with a save percentage above .925. The bad news is that he's conceded four goals in each of his past three starts against Eastern Conference opposition, and the Senators have a Friday matchup with a Carolina squad that scored twice on 13 shots against Nilsson in a relief appearance. As nice as Wednesday's performance was for him, it's probably an aberration.

    Senators' Anders Nilsson: Confirmed to start Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/14/19) Nilsson will be in net Wednesday versus Colorado.

    Nilsson may have won two of his past three starts, but beyond that, the Swede's last victory came back on Oct. 16. The Avalanche have struggled recently, losing three straight games, but with a 5-11-1 record in 2018-19, Nilsson, even against the less-than-great teams in the league, cannot be trusted to produce favorable fantasy results. Look elsewhere besides Ottawa's crease for fantasy goalie help.

    Senators' Anders Nilsson: Can't stop Sharks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/13/19) Nilsson conceded three goals on 31 shots Saturday, taking a 4-1 loss to San Jose.

    It wasn't a great end to the Pacific Division swing for Nilsson, but it was a reasonable result against a team as good as the Sharks, and he played well on the trip overall, stopping 93 of 98 shots in California. If his performance against his former division rivals is a sign of things to come, owners will be thrilled with his numbers for the rest of the season. However, Wednesday is probably not the time to ride with him, as Colorado's prolific top line figures a tougher test than the past weekend was for Nilsson.

    Senators' Anders Nilsson: Sharp in victory

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/11/19) Nilsson stopped 33 of 34 shots Thursday, earning a 4-1 win over Los Angeles.

    Playing his old foes in the Pacific Division is paying off for the ex-Canuck, as Nilsson has now bested the Ducks and Kings on consecutive nights. There's a good chance he'll get a night off against the Sharks on Saturday after a back-to-back, but if he plays, he's worth a start.

    Senators' Anders Nilsson: Earns first win with Senators

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/10/19) Nilsson stopped 32 of 33 shots in a 2-1 overtime victory against the Ducks on Wednesday.

    Behind this performance, the 28-year-old got his first victory with his new team. Nilsson joined the Senators via trade from Vancouver last week, and he lost his first two starts. While it's great to see him in the win column, Nilsson is hard to trust. He now owns a combined 4-10-1 record, .902 save percentage and 3.03 GAA this season.
