On the day before a weekend that will define their season, the Ottawa Senators have found out they’ll likely be without their number one goalie.
The Senators announced this morning that they have recalled goaltender Nathan Lawson from Binghamton of the American Hockey League. Craig Anderson was injured in the third period of the game against Nashville and has not been able to practice this week. The injury is believed to be something with his shoulder. While losing Anderson hurts, it also means a huge opportunity for Robin Lehner.
The game on Saturday in Montreal is the biggest of the season for the Senators and he’ll be getting the start. Ottawa plays at home on Sunday against Colorado so you would assume Lehner starts that one as well.
