  • Senators' Craig Anderson: Third win in last nine

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/9/18) 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.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Another formidable opponent awaits

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/8/18) 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.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Peppered in home loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/7/18) 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.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Gets starting nod

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/5/18) Anderson will guard the cage in Thursday's home game against the Canadiens.

    Anderson wasn't great in his last start, surrendering five goals on 41 shots en route to a 5-2 road loss to the Canadiens on Tuesday. The veteran netminder will be tasked with facing the same opponent Thursday, but this time he'll be at home, where the Senators have compiled an admirable 9-4-2 record this season.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Peppered by Canadiens

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/5/18) Anderson allowed five goals on 41 shots Tuesday, taking a 5-2 loss to Montreal.

    It's never easy to fault Anderson in these situations because of how many shots he ends up facing, but there's no way to put a positive spin on five goals allowed, even against a team like Montreal. Anderson's heavy workload means that he's only worth using in daily leagues when he's got a favorable matchup, as it's just too hard to trust him on a consistent basis.
