Sens' Anderson will return to start vs. Rangers
Senators goaltender Craig Anderson will start for Ottawa Thursday night against the Rangers.
NEW YORK -- Goaltender Craig Anderson will return to the lineup for the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night after missing three games with a lower-body injury.

Anderson said he felt good after practice Wednesday and coach Cory Clouston confirmed his goaltender would be back to face the New York Rangers on Thursday.

Since arriving in a trade on Feb. 18 that sent goaltender Brian Elliott to the Colorado Avalanche, Anderson has been splendid. Anderson is 6-4-0 with a 2.11 goals-against average and .938 save percentage with the Senators.

The Senators rewarded Anderson with a four-year contract extension Monday.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
