    Record so far is 12-4-1. .936 save percentage and a 2.03 GAA

    He has been a beast so far in net.

    Was also just named the NHLs first star of the week.

    Now here is someone who deserves an appreciation thread. Not just for this season, but for the last five years.

    Andy has always been a top 10 goalie in the league in my opinion, at least over the last 4-5 seasons.

    This year he's top 5.

    Love this guy. He's so calm cool and collected in interviews too. It would have been really easy for Andy to go off on the team when they would let an absurd amount of shots against under Cameron. He always played it classy.

    Damn he's been good. Boucher's system looks like it encourages players to take the middle of the ice away, but he's still be absolutely amazing in there. Beast!

    Andy has just been amazing this season........

    I don't know how he can be going through what he is in his personal life and play so well.......................................

    When my wife was failing 60 yrs ago to MS I will admit it I was a basket case........

    Totally agree ZekeA!!

    He's been an absolute beast and to do that while going through such hard time in his own life is truly incredible. He deserves every bit of praise he's getting and more.

    Truly been great for Ottawa.

    Best goalie in Sens history due to his consistency here.

    Until this year I was on the fence with Anderson, he was either elite or uninterested in games but this year he actually seems to have taken a step in his game and overall consistency. He's been remarkable.

    Well, Sens are 22nd in SA/GP this season with 31.2 SA per game. Last season, they were 30th with 32.8, so they're just giving up 1.6 less shot per 60 minutes... As for 2014-15, Sens were 25th in SA/GP in the last 55 games of the season (when Cameron became coach)

    http://www.naturalstattrick.com/tea...&stype=2&sit=all&score=all&gpf=c&gp=55&rate=n

    I have been repeating ad nauseam but the number of shots against doesn't matter much if you're cutting the quality of chances against.

    2014-15 (last 55 games):

    SA : 25th
    SCA : 13th
    HDSCA : 12th

    2015-16 :

    SA : 30th
    SCA : 28th
    HDSCA : 20th

    2016-17 :

    SA : 22th
    SCA : 22th
    HDSCA : 8th


    As I have repeated in the past, Ottawa has been a team "boxing out the perimeter" for years (as indicated by the scoring chances (high or regular) vs the number of shots), it's just that this year they are more successful at it.

    In comparison, Habs are :

    2016-17 :

    SA : 25th
    SCA : 24th
    HDSCA : 22th

    2015-16 :

    SA : 12th
    SCA : 13th
    HDSCA : 16th

    Craig Anderson

    I guarantee you when he comes back, he'll go on a stupid run maintaining a sv% 930+ for like the rest of the season... it's .924 now, I could see him pushing it up to .930

    When he misses time he just comes back and obliterates and you know how his personality is... that guys driven

    yeah I could see that.
    We need to add a strong net driving forward to the top 6 and then even the bottom 6 to make a run to the playoffs relevant though imo. first round exit would be painful. Our forwards are weak comparatively.

    We’re going to win. We’re going to win so much. We’re going to win at save percentage, we’re going to win at the GAA. We’re going to win so much, you’re going to be so sick and tired of winning, you’re going to come to me and go ‘Please, please, we can’t win anymore.’ You’ve heard this one. You’ll say ‘Please, Mr. Anderson, we beg you sir, we don’t want to win anymore. It’s too much. It’s not fair to everybody else.’†Anderson said. “And I’m going to say ‘I’m sorry, but we’re going to keep winning, winning, winning, We’re going to make Ottawa great again.

    it sure will be interesting to see a clear #1 calibre starter playing behind a more structurally sound D.
