Craig Anderson might return to the Ottawa Senators by the end of January or early February.

Anderson left the Senators to be with his wife Nicholle while she undergoes cancer treatment. Senators GM Pierre Dorion cautioned that despite that possible return date for Anderson, there is ultimately no timetable. Anderson also won't get back into the net immediately after returning, presumably because he'll need some time to get ready for games.

Clarke MacArthur (concussion) will be held out for the rest of the season.

MacArthur sustained the injury during a training camp scrimmage. "Clarke is devastated by this news," Dorion relayed to the media this morning. "He felt he didn't have any symptoms but I think in the long-term of this process we always said that the doctors would decide if Clarke was going to play. They all feel that Clarke should not play this year." MacArthur was also limited to four games last season due to a separate concussion.

Ryan Dzingel scored a goal in Thursday's 2-0 win over Columbus.

He potted his ninth goal of the season late in the second period after Kyle Turris opened the scoring in the first. That was all the offense the Senators would need, as Mike Condon stopped all 42 shots he faced for the shutout. Dzingel, who battled through the flu, had four shots in the contest.

Kyle Turris scored the game-winning goal in a 2-0 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Turris took a beautiful stretch pass from Erik Karlsson before beating Sergei Bobrovsky on a breakaway. It was his 16th goal of the season. Turris is currently on pace for 62 points, two shy of his career high of 64 set during the 2014-15 season. With 12 points in his last 12 games, Turris should probably have a higher yahoo ownership percentage (39%). Ryan Dzingel scored the other goal for the Senators in this contest.

Mike Condon stopped all 42 shots he faced in a 2-0 shutout win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday.

Condon is proving to be one of the best bargain goaltending acquisitions since the Minnesota Wild picked up Devan Dubnyk from the Coyotes. Condon has now started 17 straight for the Sens and boasts a 12-7-3 record. He has wins in four of his last five games and has his goals against average and save percentage sitting at 2.31 and .920 respectively. His 46% yahoo ownership rate should be much higher as the undisputed starter in the Senators goal.

Casey Bailey will be scratched against Columbus on Thursday.

Bailey has 10 goals and 15 points in 33 games with AHL Binghamton this season, however he's pointless through four games with the big boys.

Mark Borowiecki won't play Thursday against Columbus due to the flu.

Well, that's no fun. He's been a steady workhorse defenseman all season long for Ottawa but he'll have to beat the bugs first. Consider him day-to-day.
Jan 19 - 6:54 PM

Mark Borowiecki is not warming up for Thursday's match with Columbus.

Which clearly indicates that he will not play tonight. The rugged defender has posted 69 PIMs and 197 hits in 40 games thus far with Ottawa.
Jan 19 - 6:36 PM

Fredrik Claesson will return to the Senators' blue line on Thursday night against Columbus.

This will be 24-year-old's first game in nearly two weeks, and his ninth game overall this season. He has no points with three blocks and 10 hits thus far and is slated to pair with Chris Wideman on Ottawa's third defensive unit.

Casey Bailey has been summoned by the Ottawa Senators.

Bailey has 10 goals and 15 points in 33 AHL games this season. He's also appeared in four games with the Ottawa Senators, but didn't record a point in those contests.
Jan 19 - 1:02 PM

Mike Condon will be in the crease again for the Senators on Thursday night.

He will make his 11th straight start when Ottawa visits the Columbus Blue Jackets. Coach Guy Boucher doesn't think Condon needs a break and the Senators need him to stay in the crease to keep pace in the playoff picture. He has an 11-7-3 record with a 2.46 GAA and a .914 save percentage in 22 appearances with Ottawa this season.
Jan 19 - 9:00 AM

Clarke MacArthur (concussion) still requires further testing before he gets clearance to play.

"All year we were hoping to get the fast answers," coach Guy Boucher said when asked about a timeline. "In the end, we figured out it's a long process. It's a longer process and that's where it's at." MacArthur still hopes to play this season, but his status remains unclear because of post-concussion syndrome.
Jan 19 - 8:53 AM

Jean-Gabriel Pageau notched a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 6-4 victory over St. Louis.

He opened the scoring just 3:03 into the first period and added an assist on Mike Hoffman's game winner during the third period. Pageau has five goals and 16 points in 42 matches this season.
Jan 18 - 10:39 AM

Bobby Ryan has a three-game point streak after he scored his ninth goal of the year on Tuesday night against the Blues.

He has two goals and one assist in four games since he was a healthy scratch. Ryan has been great during his career versus St. Louis with 18 goals and 32 points in 25 contests.
Jan 18 - 10:36 AM

Kyle Turris earned two assists in a 6-4 win against the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night.

He had a hand in goals by Mike Hoffman (power play) and Bobby Ryan in the match. Turris has generated two goals and four helpers during his four-game point streak.
