The Senators have recalled Andrew Hammond from Binghamton (AHL) on an emergency basis.
Craig Anderson is out with a hand injury, so Hammond has been called up to serve as Robin Lehner’s backup tonight vs. the Stars. Hammond is 7-13-2 with a 3.51 GAA and .898 SV% with Binghamton this season.
Anderson will not dress on Thursday because of a hand injury.
Robin Lehner was already scheduled to start, but Anderson will not be available to back-up because of a hand injury. Andrew Hammond has been recalled on an emergency basis and will serve as Lehner’s backup. Consider Anderson day-to-day.
Lehner surrendered five goals on 29 shots in the Senators loss to the Stars on January 13th. He has not registered a win since December 13th and sits at 6-7-2 with a 3.16 GAA and .900 SV%. He will get another shot at Dallas on Thursday, but with the fourth best offence in town, this is a risky spot-start.
Anderson allowed three goals on 35 shots in the Senators 3-2 overtime loss in New York. Tonight will mark the second time that he has started both games of a back-to-back (he won the first time). Anderson has yet to face the Maple Leafs this season, but they are in a free-fall right now, so Andy should be an OK start tonight.
Anderson allowed three goals on 28 shots in the Senators 3-2 loss to the Hurricanes on Saturday. Anderson has been great for the majority of the last month, going 6-3-2 with a 2.09 GAA and .924 SV%. Tonight he draws a tough matchup in New York. The Rangers are among the NHL’s hottest teams as of late.
Anderson allowed one goal on 26 shots in the Senators win over the Canadiens on Thursday. Andy has gone 3-1-1 with a 1.76 GAA and .938 SV% since the calendar switched to 2015. He will look to keep things going tonight with the Hurricanes in town. It is a nice matchup—Carolina is 29th in the NHL in scoring (2.00 G/PG)
Neil (knee) skated with the team this morning; not timetable for his return.
Neil has been out with a knee injury since December 11th, but was able to join the team for a skate this morning. Despite being on the ice, he needs to be a full participant in a practice before his return is imminent.
Anderson made 31 saves on 32 shots in the Senators win over the Coyotes on Saturday. He was given Tuesday night off, but will be back in tonight vs. the Habs. Anderson is 2-1-1 with a 1.98 GAA and .932 SV% to start January and catches a break with Montreal coming in on the second half of a back-to-back. Andy has gone 6-2-3 with a 2.23 GAA and .928 SV% at home.
Lehner will be in goal for the Senators on Tuesday.
Lehner allowed tow goals on 12 shots after replacing Craig Anderson in the Senators loss to the Avs’ last Thursday. Lehner has not registered a win in exactly one month, but has only had three starts in that span. He comes in at 6-6-2 with a 3.03 GAA and .904 SV% on the year.
