While the Ottawa Senators roll along destined for a date in the playoffs, they’ve been doing so for the last four weeks without starting goalie Craig Anderson. While Ben Bishop has done well while Anderson’s been out, it’s shaping up that Anderson could be back by the end of the week.
Allen Panzeri of Senators Extra reports that coach Paul MacLean is feeling good about Anderson’s progress after cutting his hand.
“We’re going to see how (Anderson) does. Obviously he’s getting better. He’s practising. It’s four weeks on Thursday, which is a date the surgeons thought was important to get to, and we’ll take it day-by-day and see how it goes.”
That’s a whole lot of coach speak there but it’s possible that Anderson is back in goal for the Sens by the end of the week. Here’s to hoping that Anderson is staying out of the kitchen to make dinner until the playoffs are over.
