It is not clear if Andrew Hammond will get the start in Game 3 in Ottawa Sunday against Montreal.

The Senators are down 2-0 in the best of seven series to the Canadiens, and although Hammond has not been the major reason for the deficit, a switch to Craig Anderson could provide the team with a little spark. Thus far Ottawa coach Dave Cameron has been silent on the topic. Stay tuned for further updates.

Andrew Hammond made 39 saves on 42 shots in Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to Montreal in game two of their first round series.

The Senators scored the opening goal of the game, but Montreal stormed back with two goals of their own in the second period. Ottawa managed to tie the game in the third period to force overtime. Eric Gryba had a terrible turnover in his own zone which led to Galchenyuk's game-winning goal, but Hammond will likely want to have that shot back. The Senators now find themselves down two games to none in this best of seven series. Game three, in Ottawa, will take place on Sunday evening.

Andrew Hammond will get the start in Game Two on Friday night against Montreal.

Hammond made 35 saves but lost Game One on Wednesday night 4-3, a better, calmer game can be reasonably expected in Game Two tonight. Remember, Hammond and the Senators have been playing for their playoff lives since he took over the crease 28 games ago. And he didn't earn a 20-1-2 record out of sheer luck. He also beat Montreal twice during his run, stopping 69 of combined 73 shots.

Ottawa goalie Andrew Hammond made 35 saves but lost his playoff debut Wednesday night.

The rookie played well in the Senators' 4-3 loss to the Canadiens in Montreal in the first game of the Eastern Conference First Round. But, even without injured Max Pacioretty in the lineup and even though P.K. Subban was ejected in the second period, the Canadiens were a tough opponent. Hammond won each of his two starts against Montreal during the regular season but the playoffs always are a different story. If the Sens are going to record an upset over Montreal, Hammond will have to steal games in the best-of-seven series. Can he do it? Well, it'll be very tough, but yes. Don't forget, the kid went 20-1-2 down the stretch during the Senators' improbable 21-3-3 run to clinch a playoff berth.

Andrew Hammond will make his first career playoff start Wednesday night versus the Montreal Canadiens.

Hammond will have a tough task ahead of him with the one of the league’s best teams in the Canadiens, but Hammond did win each of his two starts against Montreal this year. In those starts, he gave up a combined four goals while stopping 69 shots, good for a 2.00 goals-against-average and .945 save percentage. If those numbers can carry over to the postseason, then maybe the Senators can pull of the series upset over the favored Canadiens.

Andrew Hammond says it's a relief to make the playoffs.

The Senators were 14 points out of a playoff spot on February 10th, but they went on an incredible run to close out the year. "Insane, crazy and, at times, it felt insurmountable," said Hammond. "The biggest credit to our group is we never stopped. There was times when we got off the streak and lost three in a row. It still seemed like a tall task but today we see the results of all this. It's just relief. It's been a long two months that we've been climbing and it's a little bit of satisfaction to get in. We all know why we play the game and that's to win the Stanley Cup. Now the real work is ahead of us." Hammond has been sensational since taking over as Ottawa's number one goaltender. He finished the regular season with a 20-1-2 record and a 1.79 goals-against-average to go along with a .941 save percentage. Ottawa will take on Montreal starting on Wednesday night.

Andrew Hammond generated one of the most improbable 20-win seasons in NHL history while helping the Ottawa Senators clinch a postseason berth.

Hammond's an absurd 20-1-2 in an unforgettable out-of-nowhere run. His individual numbers have been great, too, and he came up big on Saturday, stopping 32 out of 33 shots in a 3-1 win against the Philadelphia Flyers.
Apr 11 - 3:11 PM

It should come as no surprise that Andrew Hammond will be in goal Saturday afternoon against the Flyers.

This is a must-win game for the Senators. If the Sens win and either Boston loses or Pittsburgh loses in regulation time, they will sneak into the playoffs. As defeating Philadelphia is the first order of business, the Sens will start the man who really was the catalyst in their unlikely post-season drive -- Hammond. Did you think Dave Cameron was going to sit a guy who has a 19-1-2 record in the team's most important game of the season?
Apr 11 - 10:25 AM

Andrew Hammond pitched a perfect performance on Broadway Thursday night, stopping all 26 shots he faced while leading Ottawa to a 3-0 win over the Rangers.

Hammond and the Sens moved into the top Wild Card spot with the victory, a point ahead of fellow Wild Card dweller the Pittsburgh Penguins and two points ahead of the Boston Bruins. The Sens have an extra game played on both those teams, so Hammond will have to continue his magic on Saturday in Philadelphia to finish off the incredible run. Hammond is 19-1-2 since taking over in goal with a .939 save percentage, 1.82 goals against average and three shutouts.
Apr 9 - 10:11 PM

Andrew Hammond will get the start versus the New York Rangers on Thursday night.

The Senators enter this game tied with Boston (95 points) but the Bruins hold the tie-breaker. The Rangers have already said that they will rest key players like Rick Nash and Marc Staal for this game, so the two points are there for the taking for Ottawa. Hammond has an 18-1-2 record with a 1.91 goals-against-average and a .937 save percentage in 22 games.
Apr 9 - 5:39 PM

Andrew Hammond was beaten three times in the first 14:44 of play, but the Senators would rally to topple the Penguins 4-3 in overtime.

While Patric Hornqvist's goal to make it 3-0 is forgivable, given that the shot popped straight up and landed on the goal line. He cannot give up a goal 10 seconds in and expect to win again. That being said, Hammond made 25 saves and all five on the kill, bringing the Senators to a tie in the standings with Boston for the final Wild Card slot. Hammond's record also improves to 18-1-2 with 42 goals against in 23 appearances this season.
Apr 8 - 12:33 AM

Andrew Hammond will get the start against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night.

The Senators come in trailing the Red Wings and Penguins, who are tied for the Wild Card, by just two points. Hammond for his part is 17-1-2 over 22 appearances this season with just 38 goals against. Hammond is 3-0-1 with seven goals against in four starts since allowing five goals to the Rangers.
Apr 7 - 5:30 PM

Andrew Hammond has captured the first star of the week.

Hammond was the first star of March and he's carried that impressive play into April. He posted a 3-0-1 record with a 1.63 goals-against average and a .940 save percentage for the period ending Apr. 5 to take the weekly honor. Hammond has been incredible for the Senators since he made his first NHL start on Feb. 18.
Apr 6 - 2:35 PM

Andrew Hammond stopped 36 of 38 shots in Sunday's 3-2 shootout loss to Toronto.

The win is insignificant for Toronto but the fact that Ottawa failed to pick up the extra point in the standings is a tough pill to swallow. The Senators are now two points behind Detroit and Pittsburgh in the Wild Card chase but both those teams own the tiebreaker over Ottawa. Hammond's record now falls to 17-1-2 on the season. Ottawa still has a good chance at making the playoffs but Tuesday's game against Pittsburgh will be crucial for them.
