Anderson stopped 18 of 19 shots Sunday but was on the wrong end of the series-ending Game 6 loss.

Anderson did all he could to keep the Sens' season alive after receiving the starting nod since Game 3 as he allowed just four total goals in those four games, but the offense in front of him couldn't provide any support Sunday. The 33-year-old finished the season at 14-13-8 with a 2.49 GAA and .923, but it remains to be seen how the club will approach their goaltending next season between Anderson and the soon-to-be restricted free agent Andrew Hammond.

Anderson will start between the pipes for Sunday's Game 6 matchup with the Canadiens, the Ottawa Sun reports.

Anderson has been spectacular in net for the Senators over the last three contests, posting save percentages above .950 in each of the contests. The Senators will ride the hot hand in net into Game 6 as they look to force a Game 7.

Anderson was sensational Friday, shopping 45 of 46 shots in a Game 5 win over Montreal.

Anderson has been unstoppable since starting Game 3, turning away 120 of 123 shots to help the Senators claw their way back into the series. Now trailing the Canadiens 3-2 in the first round, Anderson will need to come up big once again in Game 6 Sunday if Ottawa hopes to see another day. With Anderson's gushing confidence and spectacular play, it's possible Ottawa could complete a reverse sweep. It was Andrew Hammond's net before, but it's Anderson's goal crease now.

Anderson will be between the pipes for Friday's Game 5 against the Canadiens, TSN 1200's Gord Wilson reports.

It's hardly a surprise, as Anderson was phenomenal in Game 4, turning away all of the 28 shots he faced en route to a shut out. He'll likely need to turn in a similar performance to give the Senators a chance to gain some ground in their series with the Habs', in which they currently trail three games to one.

Anderson stopped all 28 of the shots he faced in Wednesday's 1-0 win over the Canadiens.

Anderson was perfect in net Wednesday, and his team needed every save to avoid being swept by the Habs. There's no word yet, but it's probably safe to assume that Anderson has earned the crease again to start Game 5 in Montreal.

Coach Dave Cameron confirmed Anderson would be in net for Wednesday's Game 4 against the Canadiens.

This much was expected after Anderson was in the starter's crease during the team's morning skate. With the Senators staring at a 3-0 series deficit, it appears we've seen the last of Andrew Hammond during the postseason. If the Sens are able to escape with a win in Game 4, Cameron would more than likely be inclined to stick with Anderson the rest of the way.

Anderson is on track to start Wednesday's Game 4 against the Canadiens, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Anderson was in the starter's crease at the Sens' morning skate, a likely indicator that he'll be in the pipes for the second straight game over Andrew Hammond. Though he wasn't able to come away with the victory in Game 3, Anderson was superb, stopping 47 of 49 shots in the overtime loss. With the Sens facing a 3-0 series deficit, Anderson will probably need to come up huge Wednesday to have a chance at keeping the team alive in the postseason.

The Sens have yet to confirm a starter in goal (between Anderson and Andrew Hammond) for Wednesday's Game 4 against the Canadiens, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

We suspect that Anderson's strong effort in Game 3 will earn him another start, but Scanlan relays that coach Dave Cameron wants to make sure that Anderson is 100 percent physically (following his first appearance since March 29) before announcing the team's Game 4 starter in goal.

Anderson was outstanding in Sunday's Game 3 overtime loss to Montreal, stopping 47 of 49 shots.

Although it was Anderson's first appearance since Mar. 29, he didn't show any rust and was named third star of the game. While it's recently been Andrew Hammond's crease, it appears the Senators are now going with the more experienced Anderson. Although the 33-year-old hasn't won a game since Mar.8, he owns a .928 career playoff save percentage and will need to be lights out if the Senators hope to claw back from this 3-0 series deficit.

Anderson will receive the start in net for Sunday's Game 3 matchup with the Islanders, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

Anderson served as the backup behind Andrew Hammond for the first two contests of the series, but both resulted in losses. He'll get his chance to turn the series around Sunday, getting the start in front of the home crowd in Ottawa.
