Craig Anderson stopped 27 of 29 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the New York Rangers.

Finally, Ottawa was able to put a stop to their five-game losing skid. The victory also snaps Anderson's personal seven-game slide. Prior to tonight's win, the Senators goaltender hadn't won a game since Nov. 11. He now owns an 8-10-3 record with a 3.05 goals-against-average and a .897 save percentage this season. Despite the win, it's still tough to trust him as a stable fantasy option right now.

Craig Anderson will get the start in Wednesday's game against the New York Rangers.

Anderson and the Senators have been ice cold of late. He has a 7-10-3 record with a 3.11 goals-against-average and a .895 save percentage this season.

Dec 9 - 3:38 PM

Craig Anderson allowed two goals on 21 shots in Wednesday's 3-0 loss in Anaheim.

After giving up five goals in a road appearance against the Islanders, Anderson has bounced back nicely stopping 58 of the 60 shots he has faced over the past two appearances. Ottawa is skidding lately, winning just one of his past eight starts. It certainly didn't help that the Sens backed him with zero goals of support. He'll look for better support Thursday in Los Angeles or Saturday in San Jose, perhaps both.
Dec 7 - 1:37 AM

Craig Anderson will get the nod Wednesday against Anaheim.

Anderson played well in a relief appearance against Winnipeg on Sunday, but he hasn't posted a victory since Nov. 11 when he entered Ottawa's second game in Sweden in relief against Colorado. He has gone 0-5-0, with one no-decision, in his last six starts.
Dec 6 - 10:01 AM

Craig Anderson made 27 saves on 27 shots in a 5-0 loss to the Jets on Sunday.

Anderson was called into action after Mike Condon allowed five goals on 22 shots in 26:50 of action. Condon took the loss in the match, so Anderson's record stands at 7-8-3 this season with a 3.06 goals-against average and .895 save percentage.
Dec 3 - 10:41 PM

Craig Anderson was pulled in Friday's 6-5 win over the New York Islanders.

Anderson was yanked after giving up five goals on just 18 shots in 28:40 of ice time. The Sens were trailing 5-4 when he came out of the game, but they managed to come back thanks to backup goalie Mike Condon's 19 saves. Anderson, who didn't factor into tonight's decision, is having a tough time this season. He owns a 7-8-3 record with an ugly 3.15 goals-against-average and a .889 save percentage. On the bright side, the Senators managed to end their seven-game losing streak.
Dec 1 - 10:38 PM

Dec 1 - 12:48 PM

Craig Anderson allowed two goals on 24 shots in a 2-1 loss to the New York Islanders.

Nov 25 - 10:17 PM

It's a surprise considering Anderson was in goal last night against the Blue Jackets. He has a 8-6-3 career record against the Islanders with a 2.32 goals against average and .930 save percentage. The 36-year-old netminder will hope his strong record against the Islanders will lead to a bounce back performance tonight. He has a 7-7-3 record with a 3.01 goals against average and .894 save percentage this season.

Anderson now owns a 7-7-3 record with a 3.01 goals-against-average and a .894 save percentage. His personal losing skid has hit four games.
Nov 24 - 10:02 PM

Nov 23 - 4:19 PM
