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

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
