The night after a hard fought and intense 1-0 win in the season opener in Buffalo, Paul MacLean went back to Craig Anderson on back to back nights.  Shutout or no shutout, this set the tone for the season where Robin Lehner was not treated as a 1A, but rather a distant 2nd in the depth chart.  Anderson had been injured in the pre-season and I felt it was a big mistake to throw him back into the fire in back to back games so early on.  Ottawa blew leads of 2-1 and 4-2 only to fall in the shootout.
