3:00 PM: Craig Anderson is slated to be the goaltender tonight for the Senators when they take on the Blackhawks.

Anderson, a native of Chicago suburb Park Ridge, Illinois, has appeared in eight career games against the Blackhawks who drafted him in 2001. In those games he has earned a 5-1-2 record with a 3.38 goals-against average and .905 save percentage.

The Blackhawks have not confirmed a starter for tonight's game as of yet but look for either Corey Crawford to make a return from injury or an NHL debut for Scott Darling.
