Craig Anderson is expected to make his seventh straight start Saturday night against Arizona.
After back-to-back shutouts, Anderson has allowed seven goals in his last two outings, including five on 36 shots in third periods. Still, coach Dave Cameron isn't complaining and compared Anderson to Hall of Famer Grant Fuhr. "(Fuhr) didn't give up the next one when the game was on the line and he had a chance to win it," said Cameron. "Andy has been exceptional the last while. Exceptional." Nov 27 - 8:08 AM

Anderson brings his record to 9-4-3 with a 2.69 goals-against-average and a .919 save percentage. He has earned at least one point in each of his last five starts.

Craig Anderson will start Tuesday night in Dallas and he will probably play again on Wednesday at Colorado.

Chris Driedger is serving as Ottawa's backup goalie because of Andrew Hammond's injury, so Anderson is probable to play both games of the back-to-back situation. Coach Dave Cameron won't announce his starter until after Tuesday's contest. Anderson has blanked the opposition in his past two games, but will face a much stiffer test tonight against a potent Stars offense.
Nov 24 - 10:40 AM

Craig Anderson recorded his second shutout of the season in the Senators’ 4-0 win against the Flyers on Saturday night.

He made 36 saves. In fact, he has shutouts in back-to-back starts, so it’s pretty safe to assume he’ll be in there again against the high-flying Stars on Tuesday. Anderson sports a 2.61 GAA and .921 SV%. He's made 61 saves across two games.

Nov 20 - 1:45 PM

Craig Anderson was perfect on Thursday night, stopping all 25 shots steered his way for his first shutout of the season.

Anderson has been quite inconsistent as of late, but made Thursday a night to remember with the help of Erik Karlsson, who notched three points. Anderson is now 7-4-3 this season with a .915 save percentage and 2.79 goals against average in 2015-16.
Nov 20 - 1:09 AM

Craig Anderson has been confirmed as the Ottawa Senators' starter on Thursday.

That was expected as he was the first goaltender off the ice following the morning skate. He has a 3.00 GAA and .911 save percentage in 13 games in 2015-16.
Nov 19 - 12:12 PM

Look for Craig Anderson to start for Ottawa on Thursday.

Anderson was the first goalie off the ice following the morning skate. He's lost his last three contests, although Ottawa did get a consolation point in two of those games. He has a 3.00 GAA and .911 save percentage in 13 games this season.
Nov 19 - 11:59 AM

Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson blocked 33 shots in regulation and overtime before allowing the game-winning goal by Detroit's Tomas Tartar at 2:04 of the OT period.

Final score: Detroit 4, Ottawa 3. Anderson is now 6-4-3 on the season. His goals-against average is 3.00 and his save percentage is .911. He's been inconsistent this season and we don't recommend using him as your fantasy goalie unless you're borderline desperate.
Nov 16 - 11:08 PM

Craig Anderson will start in goal for the Senators Saturday afternoon against the Rangers.

Anderson is coming off an ugly 7-5 loss to Nashville on Tuesday in which he allowed all seven goals on 38 shots. For the season, Anderson sports a 6-4-1 record with a 3.07 goals against average and a .907 save percentage. If you are planning on starting Anderson Saturday, make sure he is active early, as the Sens' game is a matinee in Kanata.
Nov 14 - 10:24 AM

Craig Anderson gave up seven goals on 38 shots in Tuesday's 7-5 loss to Nashville.

Things looked good for Anderson and the Senators after the first period, as they had a 3-1 lead. Things got rockier in the second, but Ottawa still escaped the period with a 5-4 lead. That's when things really went south. Nashville got goals from Matthias Ekholm, Barret Jackman and Gabriel Bourque in the final 20 minutes to give the Preds the win. Anderson has a 6-4-1 record with a 3.12 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage.
Nov 11 - 12:54 AM

Craig Anderson will get the nod against Nashville on Tuesday night.

Anderson has won three of his past five games, but he's allowed 15 goals over that time as well. Including three games in which he's allowed at least three pucks beat him. With a 6-3-1 overall record and a .917 save percentage and a 2.97 GAA, starting Anderson is dubious at best.
Nov 10 - 7:35 PM

Craig Anderson propelled the Senators to victory on Thursday night with 38 saves on 40 shots, plus another one in the shootout to give Ottawa a 3-2 win over WInnipeg.

At 34, Anderson is showing no signs of aging as he improves to 6-3-1 so far with a .917 save percentage and 2.42 goals against average. He is clearly Ottawa's starter at this point, though Andrew Hammond will be waiting for the veteran to stumble. The Senators visit Carolina on Saturday night.
