Anderson will start in goal Friday against the Devils in New Jersey, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson stopped 31 of the 34 shots he faced against Nashville in his last outing to pick up his second straight win and his 14th of the season. Still, he hasn't fared particularly well on the road, owning just a 3-7-2 record to go along with a 4.13 GAA and an .891 save percentage. He could have a decent shot to draw one win closer to even Friday, however, taking on a Devils club that has lost nine of its last 11 games.

Anderson will tend the twine at home versus Nashville on Monday, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson has dropped three of his last five outings in which he recorded a 3.01 GAA and .918 save percentage. The Illinois native is backed by a top-10 offense (3.29 goals per contest) that struggles defensively and is allowing a league-leading 38.1 shots per game. Perhaps having seven defenseman in the lineup -- depending on Ryan Dzingel's (undisclosed) availability -- will help to limit the netminder's workload Monday.

Anderson turned away 26 of 28 shots in Friday's 4-2 road win over the Red Wings.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson leads the league in shots faced with 1,036 through 29 games. Detroit didn't pressure the veteran all that much in this one, though, and we're not just talking about total shots, either. The Wings only managed seven high-danger scoring chances during 5-on-5 action and one more on the power play. Anderson isn't the most exciting fantasy option playing for a team that ranks sixth in the Atlantic Division, but there's plenty of value to be extracted from the 37-year-old, as he's a clear-cut No. 1 goalie currently on pace for 72 games played.

Anderson will get the start Friday in Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran netminder is coming off a loss in his last start against Nashville, with Anderson taking the result after allowing three goals on 36 shots in a 3-1 loss to the Preds back on Dec. 11. Facing the Red Wings on Friday, the 37-year-old already owns a victory over Detroit in 2018-19, and he will be looking to pick up his third win in the month of December against the league's 20th ranked offense in terms of nightly goal output (2.84).

Anderson will start Tuesday's road game versus the Predators.

EDGE Analysis

It will be Anderson's 27th start of the season, the second most in the league behind Marc-Andre Fleury (28). The 37-year-old has been heavily utilized this year, and many would say that Ottawa must do a better job managing the veteran netminder's workload moving forward otherwise risk burning him out before the season's end. Nashville is coming off consecutive losses but still atop the Central Division with 39 points.

Anderson will defend the home cage in Saturday's clash with the Penguins.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson is currently tied (with Marc-Andre Fleury of Vegas) for the NHL lead in games played this season at 26 apiece. In other words, Ottawa's go-to netminder has only been able to rest for three games this season, and he's already seen 936 shots with Anaheim puck plugger John Gibson the next closest at 824. This next matchup for Anderson should be no walk in the park, as he'll field shots from a Penguins team that ranks no worse than 15th in any of the key offensive team metrics.

Anderson will guard the cage in Thursday's home game against the Canadiens.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson wasn't great in his last start, surrendering five goals on 41 shots en route to a 5-2 road loss to the Canadiens on Tuesday. The veteran netminder will be tasked with facing the same opponent Thursday, but this time he'll be at home, where the Senators have compiled an admirable 9-4-2 record this season.

Anderson will be the road starter against the Canadiens on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson's last two games have gone well, as he's only allowed two goals total, and has a win in each game. However, even with this brief spurt of strong play, the 37-year-old has a 3.62 GAA and .905 save percentage. The Canadiens, for their part, have scored 3.00 goals per game, so Anderson will have to work hard to keep up this nice stretch.

Anderson turned aside 36 of 38 shots in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Sharks.

EDGE Analysis

It's his second straight win after losing four straight, and only the fourth time since the beginning of November that Anderson has given up fewer than three goals. The veteran netminder has yet to put together an extended hot streak this season, saddling him with a .905 save percentage, but perhaps he can build on his recent success.

Anderson will guard the cage in Saturday's home game against the Sharks.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson was unbeatable in his last start, turning aside all 27 shots en route to a 3-0 victory over the Rangers on Thursday. The veteran backstop will look to stay sharp and pick up his 11th victory of the season in a home matchup with a slumping San Jose team that's lost three consecutive games.
