  • Senators' Craig Anderson: Loses final start

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/18) Anderson made just 19 saves during Friday's 4-0 loss to Pittsburgh.

    It's been a disappointing campaign for Anderson, as the Senators plummeted down the standings after being within a single goal of advancing to the Stanley Cup Finals last spring. His .898 save percentage and 3.32 GAA weren't helpful fantasy marks, and with Ottawa a rebuild candidate, his numbers could dip even further before they improve. Additionally, age isn't on the side of the 36-year-old netminder, either. For what it's worth, this was the first time since the 2005-06 season that Anderson finished with a sub-.900 save percentage -- barring a surprise appearance in Ottawa's season finale.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Slated to start Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/5/18) Anderson will tend the twine Friday against the Penguins in Pittsburgh, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    Anderson stymied the Sabres in his last start, stopping 32 of the 34 shots he faced to notch his 23rd win of the season. Although he's played noticeably better on the road than at home this season, a 3.06 GAA and a .908 save percentage don't exactly spell fantasy gold in the cage. With the high-powered Penguins on deck -- the Pens are averaging 3.63 goals per game at home this season -- it may be best to steer clear of Anderson in his final start of 2017-18.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Holds Sabres to two

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/4/18) Anderson turned aside 32 of 34 shots Wednesday, earning a 4-2 win over Buffalo.

    Anderson got a favorable matchup, and he took full advantage by posting his best numbers since Feb. 13. But anytime you can say that about a performance where the goaltender conceded twice means that said goaltender hasn't been getting the job done this season. Anderson's final two matchups at Pittsburgh and Boston won't be nearly as promising, and he probably shouldn't be used in either game unless you have no other options.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Gets starting nod Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/4/18) Anderson will start in the blue paint for Wednesday's road tilt against the Sabres.

    Anderson, much like the majority of his Ottawa teammates, has had a tough go of things in 2017-18, posting a 3.33 GAA and .898 save percentage to go along with a 22-24-6 record. The American netminder has been particularly bad over his last 13 starts, though, posting a 3.88 GAA and .881 save percentage over that span. Additionally, Anderson allowed four or more goals in seven of those contests. Despite all the negatives, Anderson and the Sens will be facing off against a Sabres team that sits dead last both in the standings and in scoring.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Allows six goals in defeat

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/3/18) Anderson made 34 saves on 40 shots Monday, taking a loss by a 6-5 score against Winnipeg.

    It's been a lousy year for Anderson, who has a GAA of 3.33, his worst since 2006, and a save percentage below .900 for the first time since 2011. His struggles are a big reason why the Senators have crashed this year after coming one goal short of the Eastern Conference championship last season, and at this point, he shouldn't be playing for your squad unless you don't have any other option.
