Erik Karlsson netted his 15th goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to Philadelphia.

Craig Anderson stopped 33 of 35 shots in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday.

Anderson's clearing attempt was intercepted by Weal who promptly buried the puck into the empty net to tie the game with just under six minutes remaining in regulation. The Senators eventually fell to the Flyers in the shootout. Anderson now has only one win in his last four starts, posting a 1-2-2 record during that span. The Masterton Trophy nominee's record drops to 22-10-3 with a 2.30 goals against average and .927 save percentage with the shootout loss.

Kyle Turris picked up a goal and an assist in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday.

Turris has picked up seven points in his last seven games and is leading the push to get the Sens into the playoffs. He has now matched his career high of 26 goals, leaving him with seven games to surpass that mark. His assist came on Erik Karlsson's 15th goal of the year.

Jyrki Jokipakka appears in line to see his first action with the Senators on Tuesday against the Flyers, if Zach Smith can't go.

Zack Smith (illness) is looking like a game-time decision for Tuesday night.

If he can't play then Ottawa could dress seven defensemen, with Jrki Jokipakka stepping into the lineup for the first time as a member of the Senators.

Craig Anderson will play between the pipes on Tuesday.

Anderson will be making his fourth start in the span of five games. He has a 2.32 GAA and .927 save percentage in 34 starts this season.
Mar 27 - 12:34 PM

Craig Anderson has been selected as the Ottawa Senators' nominee for the Masterton Trophy.

The Masterton Trophy honors the player who best exemplifies perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. This has been a very difficult season for Anderson and his family as his wife, Nicholle, was diagnosed with throat cancer. Anderson left the team to be with her, but later rejoined the Senators at her urging on Oct. 30. He later took another two months of leave to be with her during her treatment before returning to the team again in March. Despite how difficult this has to be for him, when Anderson has played he's been outstanding with a 2.32 GAA and .927 save percentage in 34 starts.

Ottawa Senators top prospect Colin White has signed an amateur tryout with the Binghamton Senators.

White will join the "Baby Sens" immediately and that's where he'll stay for the rest of the 2016-17 season. He's heading to the AHL because Ottawa isn't willing to burn the first year of his entry-level contract. "We are excited to see Colin make the next step in his development in turning professional after a great college career," Sens GM Pierre Dorion said in a release. "We have spoken to Colin and his advisors at length and we are all in agreement that getting him on the ice to play games in the AHL is what is best for his growth at this moment. While our ongoing contract discussions are moving in a positive direction, we all know there is a small window left this season for Colin to gain professional experience." The 20-year-old was Ottawa's first round pick, 21st overall, in 2015. He scored 16 goals and 17 assists in 35 games at Boston College this season. White has a bright future ahead of him.

The Senators are hopeful that Viktor Stalberg (upper-body injury) will play on the team's upcoming road trip.

The Sens travel to Philadelphia for a game Tuesday, the first contest of a four-game road trip. Check back with us later on Tuesday as to Stalberg's status.

Craig Anderson played in his 500th NHL game Saturday night.

That's quite an accomplishment for a goalie. However, Anderson was obviously not happy with the results as the Sens lost to the Canadiens 3-1, their third loss in eight days to the Montreal squad.
Mar 26 - 10:51 AM

Fredrik Claesson did indeed play alongside Erik Karlsson Saturday night against Montreal.

He was subbing in for the injured Marc Methot after being a healthy scratch for the Senators' last four games. Claesson has played well in spot starts this season. That said, his highest point total in three AHL seasons is 29. He is not a fantasy asset at this time.
