Jean-Gabriel Pageau scored a goal in Sunday's 4-2 loss to Florida.

There's one more game to play in March, but it's been a productive month for Pageau, who has four goals and four assists in 15 games.
Mar 30 - 11:40 AM

Craig Anderson stopped 33 of 36 in Sunday's 4-2 loss to Florida.

Anderson lost both of his starts since returning from his hand injury on Saturday night. If the 33-year-old isn't able to get back into the win column soon the Sens will surely go back to Andrew Hammond who is now healthy. Anderson's record falls to 14-13-8 and he has a 2.49 goals-against-average and a .923 save percentage this season.
Mar 29 - 9:02 PM

Erik Karlsson scored a goal in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Florida Panthers.

Karlsson picked up a point in both of Ottawa's games this weekend but he was also a combined minus-3 in those contests. The 24-year-old played 27 minutes in the game and he finished with a minus-2 rating, and four shots on goal. Karlsson has 11 points in his last 10 games and he now hit the 20-goal mark in back-to-back seasons. He is arguably the best offensive defenseman in the game today. Jean-Gabriel Pageau scored the other goal for Ottawa.
Mar 29 - 8:54 PM

Patrick Wiercioch and Zack Smith were scratched from Sunday's tilt with the Florida Panthers.

Unfortunately, neither player boasts much fantasy value this season. Wiercioch comes in with 12 points, 26 PIMs, and 41 blocks through 49 games this season. Meanwhile Smith's season, derailed mostly by injury, has produced just 14 PIMs and 50 hits through 30 games.
Mar 29 - 5:31 PM

Craig Anderson will get the start in Sunday's game against Florida.

Anderson also started in Saturday's overtime loss to the Maple Leafs. Andrew Hammond (lower body) will return to the Senators lineup but he will serve as Anderson's backup. Anderson has a 14-12-8 record with a 2.48 goals-against-average and a .923 save percentage in 34 games this season.
Mar 29 - 2:49 PM

Andrew Hammond will be back in Ottawa's lineup on Sunday.

Craig Anderson will get the start in goal but Hammond feels good enough to be the backup goaltender. The 27-year-old missed one game because of a lower-body injury.
Mar 29 - 2:46 PM

The Ottawa Senators have assigned Chris Driedger back to the minors.

With Andrew Hammond ready to return, there was no need to have three goaltenders around.
Mar 29 - 2:44 PM

Clarke MacArthur played just under 13 minutes in his return to the lineup on Saturday.

Ottawa dropped a 4-3 overtime decision to the Toronto Maple Leafs. MacArthur made a return after suffering a concussion on February 16th. MacArthur finished the game with an assist, two penalty minutes, one shot on goal, one hit and a giveaway in the game.
Mar 29 - 12:16 PM

Kyle Turris tallied two points in the Senators’ 4-3 overtime loss to the Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

Turris scored a power-play goal in the third period and assisted on Mark Stone’s second-period goal that started the scorting. The 25-year-old has five goals over his past five games, along with seven points. On the year, he has 22 goals and 54 points. Curtis Lazar and Mark Stone got the other goals.
Mar 28 - 10:04 PM

Craig Anderson allowed four goals on 31 shots in the Senators’ 4-3 overtime loss to the Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

Sure the point is valuable, but the Senators blew this one. They had a 3-1 lead when Tyler Bozak scored at 11:29 of the third period and were winning by one when he tied up the game with 1:14 left. Anderson was making his first start since March 10. He has a 2.48 goals-against average and .923 save percentage this season. Ottawa is a point out of a playoff spot.
Mar 28 - 10:04 PM

Chris Driedger is the backup netminder for the Senators on Saturday night.

Andrew Hammond is out with an injury and Craig Anderson is getting the start. Driedger stopped all 10 shots he faced in relief against the Rangers on Thursday. He had a .891 save percentage in two games in the AHL and sported a .885 SV% in 40 games in the ECHL.
Mar 28 - 8:56 PM

As speculated earlier Saturday on Rotoworld, Craig Anderson will return to the Ottawa Senators' net when they meet the Toronto Maple Leafs in an all-Canadian evening matchup.

Anderson, 33, has been out with a deep bone bruise on his right hand. Youngster Andrew Hammond took the hockey world by storm as he filled in for Anderson, going 14-0-1 in his first 15 starts. But Hammond is now out himself with a lower-body injury sustained in a collision with San Jose Sharks forward Logan Couture on March 23. "The plan is for me to get in tonight and give it a whirl," Anderson confirmed. "I feel pretty good. I feel like it is where I need to be at this point of the weekend. We need to keep winning and playing well. For me, when you get out there and get in the moment you forget about everything else."

Clarke MacArthur will be back in the Ottawa lineup against the Maple Leafs Saturday night.

He received medical clearance as he has recovered from a concussion and seems good to go. MacArhur usually plays well against his former club so we could activate him if you need a depth forward.

Craig Anderson is on the ice and looks sharp in practise Saturday morning.

It looks as if he has overcome hand woes and with the injury to Andrew Hammond is the likely starter against the Maple Leafs Saturday night. Activate him if you need him .
Mar 28 - 11:40 AM

Look for both Jared Cowen and Colin Greening to sit in the press box Sarturday night against Toronto.

These guys have been in and out of the Ottawa lineup all season and should not be on your fantasy squad.
