Craig Anderson vs. Scott Darling

Craig Anderson of the Ottawa Senators, who hails from Park Ridge, IL and Scott Darling, a native of Lemont, IL are set to go head-to-head as the Ottawa Senators visit the Chicago Blackhawks tonight. Darling, 25, will be making his NHL debut after being recalled last week. Originally a sixth-round pick of the Arizona Coyotes (153rd overall in 2007), Darling was 2-0-0 with a .948 save percentage and a 1.44 GAA this season with the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League.

Anderson is making his first start since Oct. 16 after his last scheduled start (Wednesday against the Leafs) was postponed. Anderson made 28 saves in a win over the Avalanche last Thursday. He has a 2.01 GAA and .939 SV% in three starts this season.
