Anderson made 31 saves Saturday in a 5-1 win over Arizona.
The only shot that beat him was a perfect shot that went roof off the crossbar and in; he was also helped by his posts, but that just means he's both lucky and good. His GAA and save percentage are actually among his best as a starter, but he only has 11 wins on this middling squad. Use for the former, but don't necessarily expect the latter.

Anderson will make the start in goal Saturday against the Coyotes.
Anderson will look to rebound from an ugly performance Thursday against the Avalanche in which he made just six saves on nine shots before being pulled in the second period. Anderson is 10-10-6 on the season with a 2.41 GAA and a .926 save percentage.

Anderson made just six saves on nine shots before being yanked in the second period of Thursday's loss in Colorado.
A hideous result for Anderson and an unexpected one, as he'd been playing pretty consistently in recent weeks. Fortunately for his fantasy owners, this was most likely a fluke, as Anderson is having a strong year in terms of rate stats. Not so fortunately, the Sens don't win very much.

Anderson will man the net Thursday against the Avalanche.
Anderson is coming off a tough overtime loss against the Flyers on Tuesday, during which he turned away 33 of 34 shots before blinking in a five-round shootout. With the goalie's play trending positively in recent outings (2-0-2, .927 save percentage over his last four), he makes for a decent play against the disappointing Avs.

Anderson was sharp Tuesday against the Flyers, giving up just one goal on 34 shots, but took a 2-1 loss after a five-round shootout.
Anderson was haunted by Wayne Simmonds, who scored Philadelphia's lone regulation goal as well as the shootout winner. Still, it's a terrific outing despite the losing outcome, and Anderson is now undefeated in regulation over his last four starts (2-0-2).

Anderson will start in the crease Tuesday against the Flyers, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Anderson picked up his 10th win of the year Sunday in overtime after stopping 26 of 28 shots against the Bruins. He now owns a 2.39 GAA and .927 save percentage heading into Tuesday's matchup with the Flyers. The netminder will look to draw the Senators closer to a playoff birth and notch another win Tuesday against a Flyers squad averaging 2.72 goals per game.

Anderson thwarted 26 of 28 shots in Saturday afternoon's 3-2 OT win over the Bruins.
With the victory, Anderson brings his win total to double digits on the year (10-9-5) to go with a 2.39 GAA and a sixth-best .927 save percentage. The 33-year-old has been the top dog recently in the Canadian capital, as he's started four games in a row and six of the last seven for the Sens. Depending on who Ottawa is facing, he usually makes for a safe -- but not great -- start on a Senators team that currently sits six points out of a playoff spot.

Anderson will make the start in goal Saturday against the Bruins, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Anderson's play has generally been trending upward of late, as he's allowed three of fewer goals in each of his last five games, with a shutout mixed in as well. His .927 save percentage on the season ranks near the top of the league, but he'll need some more support from his offense if he hopes to improve upon his .500 record (9-9-5).

Anderson turned aside 19 of 21 saves in Monday's 5-2 win over the Sabres.
Buffalo actually had a 2-1 lead with less than two minutes remaining in the second period before four unanswered goals by Ottawa handed Anderson his ninth win of the season. The 33-year-old is now 9-9-5 to go with a .927 save percentage and 2.41 GAA this year, and he's been particularly appealing to those leagues that grant bonus points for shutouts, as one third of his victories (three) have been goose eggs.
