Nilsson will start Monday vs. the Bruins.

Nilsson gave up two goals on 15 shots after replacing Craig Anderson (knee) in Ottawa's loss in Philadelphia on Saturday. Nilsson has gone 0-4-0 while posting an ugly 4.77 GAA and .826 SV% in his last four appearances. He actually played well in his first start against the Bruins, stopping 19 of 21 shots in a 2-1 loss, but it remains a very difficult task for the 29-year-old and should be left on the bench on Monday.

The Senators have placed Craig Anderson on IR.

Anderson started Saturday afternoon in Philadelphia but left injured early in the first period. Anderson was hurt on a goal that ended up being disallowed on an offside review. With the veteran netminder on IR again, Anders Nilsson will be the primary starter with Marcus Hogberg coming up from Belleville to serve as his backup.

Anderson will start Saturday in Philadelphia.

Anderson allowed two goals on 26 shots in the Senators win in Edmonton on Wednesday. Anderson has been great in his last five starts, going 3-2-0 with a 1.82 GAA and .933 SV%. It could be difficult for him to keep it going against a Flyers team that has won five of their last six while scoring 3.67 goals per game.

Anderson (lower-body) will return to the Senators crease on Wednesday.

Anderson allowed one goal on 19 shots in the Senators loss in Columbus on November 25th. He ended up missing the next four games with a lower-body injury but will start Wednesday in Edmonton. While the Oilers don’t have a ton of scoring depth, facing them in Edmonton on a back-to-back with Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl in the lineup makes Anderson a super risky start on Wednesday.

Nilsson will start Tuesday in Vancouver.

Nilsson allowed seven goals on 35 shots in the Senators blowout loss in Minnesota last Friday. It was a tough way to end November for Nilsson, who finished the month at 6-3-0 with a 2.69 GAA and .915 SV%. He's inconsistent and has the facing his former team narrative tonight but the Canucks are 12th in the NHL in goal-scoring (3.18 GF/gm) and have the fourth-best PP (26.4%) so it's a matchup worth avoiding.
