Ottawa Senators Goalie Craig Anderson Leaves Game With Injury, Helped Off The Ice UPDATE: DTD WITH SPRAINED RT ANKLE

UPDATE:  THE SENATORS HAVE SAID THAT ANDERSON IS DAY TO DAY WITH A SPRAINED RIGHT ANKLE

 

When it rains, it pours.  Already decimated by injury to a number of its stars, Ottawa Senators goalie Craig Anderson, arguably the best goalie in the NHL this season, was carried off the ice after an early third period collision with New York rookie Chris Kreider.

Kreider’s feet were taken out from under him by Marc Methot, then slid into the lower body of Craig Anderson.  Andersn went down immediately, and was down for some time, and was unable to put an pressure on his right leg as he left the ice surface.

Anderson was replaced by Ben Bishop, and there will be updates coming soon.

Hopefully it was just precautionary and Anderson will be back soon.  This is why the Senators kept 3 goalies of NHL calibre in the system.

    “Hopefully precautionary”… I’m sorry, did you see the play? Did you see the pain he was in? Did you see that he wasn’t able to stand, even with help?!?! He’s likely done for the season. Bishop and Lehner aren’t exactly NHL quality starters……. they’re decent NHL backups at BEST (today).

    I guess this is the game now, if you can’t win by normal means, you beat and tackle the opposition like a bunch of goons, and put them out for the season with injuries
