Anderson to start in Boston

by Chris Lund / Ottawa Senators

It was announced by Paul MacLean on Sunday and later confirmed on Monday that it will be Craig Anderson in goal tonight when the Sens take on the Bruins for a fifth and final time this season.

Anderson has yet to face the Bruins this season and, historically, they're one of the teams that has given him trouble over the course of his career. In 11 games against Boston, Anderson is 3-8 with a 3.45 GAA and an .899 save percentage. He also has one career shutout against the B's.

Anderson is looking sharper and sharper since returning from the ankle injury that kept him from playing for the majority of the season. After two games without much help on the scoresheet, Andy came back and stole a win for the Sens in New Jersey as they won 2-0, while the team only registered 11 shots on goal.

Even with the 1-2 record since his return, Anderson still leads the NHL in both GAA and save percentage with marks of 1.53 and .949 respectively.
