EDMONTON — Craig Anderson looked good and felt good.
The veteran goaltender was also at the top of his game in the Senators stunning 5-2 victory over the high-flying Edmonton Oilers Wednesday at Rogers Place.
Returning from a lower body injury that kept him out of action a week, Anderson, 38, made 24 stops in the win and had to be at his best in the first period when club was outshot 10-4 with the Oilers’ young stars Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl buzzing.
“The way the game played out you don’t have a lot of time to think and sometimes that’s a good thing,” Anderson said following the game. “You just go out there and read and react and you find yourself getting back into the groove a little bit quicker that way.
“It helps when you make a couple of saves because it builds your confidence and it grows.”
Anderson and the Senators moved their record at the newly built arena in Edmonton to 4-0.
