Anderson to start against Pittsburgh

by Chris Lund / Ottawa Senators

With Coach MacLean announcing no lineup changes from Saturday's game for Monday night, we can safely state that Craig Anderson will be the starting goaltender with the Pittsburgh Penguins in town.

Anderson is coming off of a game to put behind him against Toronto last Saturday as he gave up four goals on 22 shots. It was just the second time all season he had given up four or more goals. Ironically enough, the last time came in Pittsburgh against the Penguins prior to bouncing back with a solid night in Toronto three days later.

Expect a good game from Andy in response tonight.

In his career vs. the Penguins, Anderson is 4-3-1-1 with a 2.42 GAA and .923 save percentage. In their last trip to Ottawa, he was immense for he Sens, stopping 33 shots over three periods and overtime until the Sens couldn't hold on any longer and fell by a 2-1 margin in a shootout.
