Craig Anderson chats up young Rangers fan from bench

Senators goalie made a new friend after being pulled from game @NHL

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.
