NEWARK, N.J. - Craig Anderson will be back in the net Tuesday night and he'll be sporting a new look.
His new mask arrived in the mail today from Detroit designer John Pepe.
"It's finally good to have it," said Anderson this morning. "Helmets are usually just a throw on and go."
As the Senators open a four-game, six-day road trip against the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center, the club will give the newly-acquired Anderson his eighth straight start.
Anderson allowed four goals on 27 shots in a 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers Saturday at home. It's expected newcomer Curtis McElhinney will get a start at some point on this road trip.
This will be a difficult challenge for the Senators. The Devils are 20-2-2 in their last 24 games.
The Senators won't make any changes to the roster. Winger Colin Greening, who suited up for Binghamton Sunday vs. Norfolk, returned to join the Senators Tuesday and will suit up. He is on an emergency recall which means he can be shuttled back and forth between Binghamton and Ottawa the rest of the season.
