SUNRISE, Fla. _ The Senators will give goalie Craig Anderson a chance to beat his former teammates tonight in Florida.
Anderson will be in the Ottawa net for the ninth straight game as the Senators take on the Panthers at the BankAtlantic Center.
Anderson has a 5-3 record since being traded from Colorado, and is coming off a 31-save performance in a 2-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday.
Anderson spent three seasons with the Panthers.
"This is a team he'd like to beat as well. There's no need to make a change," said Ottawa coach Cory Clouston.
There won't be any changes to the Ottawa lineup. Defenceman Brian Lee, who wasn't on the ice during a light skate Wednesday, is going to be fine to play.
This is game two of a four-game road trip for the Senators. It will continue Friday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
