Sens goaltender Craig Anderson spoke with the media this morning as the team gets set to face the Pittsburgh Penguins with a trip to the Stanley Cup Final on the line.
On facing the Penguins in the Eastern Conference Final:
We're excited to be where we're at and we're looking forward to our next challenge.
On preparing to face the Penguins:
Any team you play is going to be tough and we'll have to make adjustments just like any other team. We had to make adjustments for Boston, we made adjustments for New York so we'll have to make adjustments for Pittsburgh now.
On his last start in PPG Paints Arena back in December:
I don't remember (laughs). You need to have a bad memory when you play this game so that you just look forward and worry about the next one.
On if their success against the Rangers can carry over to the Conference Finals:
It's a fresh start. It all starts over from 0-0 so everything that happened in the last series needs to be put in the past for us now. You're only as good as you are tomorrow.

On being the last Canadian team remaining in the playoffs:
We don't really think too much about that. Now that you mention it, I assume that fans will have their favourites still and we should have that market cornered now.
On facing the Penguins' two-headed monster of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin:
They're good players and they make the players around them much better so we're going to have a good challenge ahead of us. We need to take away their time and space. If you give good players time and space they'll make good plays. We've got some good players on our side too that can make plays so we're really looking forward to this match-up.
