From our Famous Last Words department, this just in: Ottawa Senators goalie Craig Anderson is not worried about being worn out halfway through the season by a steady diet of 40-shot games, because he's older and wiser, and used to the mental strain of being an NHL goalie. Er, OK. But we'll still check in a little later, just to see if he has changed his mind, because it's shaping up to be another long year for Ottawa's goalies. Over their seven pre-season games, including their final 2-1 win in Boston on Thursday, in which the Bruins shelled Anderson with 40 shots, the Senators scored 16 goals. That's an average of 2.28 per game.
Craig Anderson not worried about barrage of shots he's likely to face in goal this season
