Craig Anderson may end up between the pipes for Tuesday's game against the Florida Panthers.

"If they need me, they can call my name and I'll feel comfortable getting in there," Anderson said. "I wanted to make sure I had a few good days in a row before jumping in there. The last few days have been really good. Now, it's just a matter of getting my timing back." He dressed as Robin Lehner's backup in Monday's shootout win over Tampa Bay for the first time since he sustained an upper-body injury versus Nashville on Mar. 10.

Craig Anderson may not be available to start again from his "stinger" injury until next Friday against Chicago.

"Right now it looks like, if he's just practicing, he won't be playing in Tampa Bay (Monday)," said coach Paul MacLean. "He might be able to back up in Florida (Tuesday). So I'm not sure when we can actually play him in game. It might be not until next week. As soon as we can get him back is what we're looking for, looking forward to it." He has already missed five games with the ailment, but he was able to skate again on Saturday.
