Video: Senators’ goalie Anderson stops Crosby on early breakaway

1 Comment

Ottawa Senators’ goalie Craig Anderson had a showdown with Sidney Crosby early in the second period.

With the teams deadlocked in a scoreless tie at the time, Crosby was sprung on a breakaway less than 20 seconds into the middle frame of Sunday’s Game 3 in the Eastern Conference semifinal.

Anderson, who was pulled in a Game 2 loss that put the Senators down 2-0 in the semifinal series, has been sharp through 40 minutes on Sunday, making 22 of 23 saves.

The Penguins did open the scoring late in the second period on a goal from Tyler Kennedy.
