"Outstanding" experience for Anderson in Sweden

by Craig Medaglia @craigmedaglia / Ottawa Senators

After besting the Avalanche twice in two days in Stockholm, Sens netminder Craig Anderson looks back at his time in Sweden for the NHL Global Series.

On taking over in goal on Saturday:

It is unexpected there after a couple of bad bounces for Condon. I think it was more of a momentum thing to settle things down for us. Sometimes the best thing as a goalie is not being able to think so I didn't have any time to think. I just got thrown in there and that allows you to just focus on the puck and do your job.

On his team's play in front of him in Stockholm:

I thought we were outstanding. We didn't give them much. All night, our guys were doing their jobs and, like I said, a couple of unlucky bounces going both ways for both goalies. It was just one of those nights. I thought we stuck with it and our skill came out there at the end and got us a couple of goals.

His thoughts on the NHL Global Series:

The fans we great, the arena was great, the hospitality was great…everything was just outstanding. It's a beautiful city and we enjoyed every minute of it. This is a huge hockey town and they showed their support all week.
