Craig Anderson chats up young Rangers fan from bench

Senators goalie made a new friend after being pulled from game

It would be hard to blame Ottawa Senators goalie Craig Anderson if he was done looking at New York Rangers logos for the night.

But when a young fan clad head-to-toe in Rangers gear, approached the glass next to Anderson's seat on the bench at Madison Square Garden, he couldn't help but engage in a chat with the kid.

Anderson was pulled from the game after the second period and spent the rest of the night on the bench during the Senators' 4-1 loss in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs Eastern Conference Second Round on Thursday.

Anderson has certainly had better nights, but the veteran showed plenty of class in chatting the kid up for a few seconds. Maybe he even gained a fan from it.
