Anderson to start in Tampa

by Chris Lund / Ottawa Senators

It wasn't the result they were looking for but the good news is Craig Anderson appears to be fully back in the swing of things. He'll be making the start tomorrow night against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

It'll be Andy's first start of the year against the Lightning. Earlier this season in Tampa, now-Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop got the nod before Robin Lehner got the start with Andy on the shelf two weeks ago.

Anderson's numbers against the Lightning in his career have been very good, posting a 6-1-2 record in 10 games with a 1.24 GAA and .955 save percentage. His last start in Tampa Bay came in February of 2012 where he made 28 saves to backstop the Sens to a 4-0 shutout victory.

The Sens number one 'tender made 15 stops in Sunday's game against Florida and will look to build on that going forward as he settles back into the role after 19 games away with an ankle injury.
