It's been a disaster season for Anderson who has now lost three straight while allowing a combined 13 goals.

Craig Anderson allowed six goals on 38 shots in a 6-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

Not all the blame can be put on him, but it's been really tough to see Anderson struggle so much this season after seeing how great he played last season behind more or less the same Senators team. The 36-year-old goaltender will see his record fall to 21-22-6 with a 3.32 goals-against-average and .899 save percentage. The Senators are locked into another two-years of a Anderson and Mike Condon tandem in goal.
