After arguably their worst first period of the season last night against New Jersey, the Ottawa Senators will change starting netminders.
While the back-to-back in Ottawa’s schedule always suggested this would be Hammond’s game, Anderson could’ve easily been available for selection, given he only played 13:56 last night. Hammond actually had a significantly busier workload, facing 12 New Jersey shots over the final 40-plus minutes of action.
Regardless, it’s Hamburglar who’s in tonight. He’ll be up against Jaroslav Halak in the Islanders’ goal.
— Looks as though Henrik Lundqvist will get the nod when the Rangers take on the ‘Canes in Carolina. Bill Peters hasn’t announced his starter yet, but it’s likely to be Eddie Lack, even though Lack did play last night (a shutout win over Toronto).
— After Al Montya started, and lost, on Monday, Roberto Luongo is back in goal for the Panthers as they host Chicago. Looks as though Scott Darling will start for the ‘Hawks, and give Corey Crawford the night off.
