The Ottawa Senators are sticking with the hot hand.
Anders Nilsson will make his second straight start Saturday night with the Carolina Hurricanes in town at the Canadian Tire Centre.
Coming off a 26-save performance in a 3-2 overtime victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday at home, Nilsson will stay in the net to try to collect his third straight victory. He was also between the pipes for the club’s 6-2 win against the New York Rangers on Broadway Monday.
Nilsson appears to be back to the form that made him successful last season.
“He looks big,” coach D.J. Smith said Friday. “He looks confident. He works extremely hard in practice, and if you see him he’s a big guy that takes care of himself off the ice and he’s professional. It’s great to see guys who work hard get rewarded, but, for me, he looks confident.
“He’s just looked good. It’s not so much the wins and losses, it’s the save percentage. He looks like a goalie right now. It’s hard to be a starter in the NHL and go every day. Our guys are lucky because they can go back and forth and share it.”
