OTTAWA --Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson, who has missed the last 14 games with a high ankle sprain, took shots on net for the first time at practice on Monday morning. Coach Paul MacLean said that Anderson is "progressing" but did not offer any timeline for his return.
Here's how the lineups project for Monday night's game between the Senators and New Jersey Devils:
This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.
