Anderson gave a thumb's up and waved to fans in attendance at Canadian Tire Centre while leaving the ice. Robin Lehner took over in goal for the Senators.
Senators coach Paul MacLean said Anderson has a stiff neck and will be evaluated further. The goalie was seen walking into the team's dressing room, but is unlikely to play Tuesday against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
