Next on Bryan Murray's to-do list: Sign goalie Craig Anderson. The Senators GM has had preliminary discussions with the goalie's agent, but it's unlikely negotiations will start for real until Anderson proves himself a few more times in an Ottawa jersey. Anderson, who can become an unrestricted free agent in July, has been nothing short of spectacular since being acquired from Colorado for goalie Brian Elliott. In four starts, he has a 3-1 record with 1.23 goals-against average and a .964 save percentage. Anderson will share goaltending chores with 27-year-old Curtis McElhinney, who was claimed off waivers from Tampa Monday. Teenage prospect Robin Lehner was returned to Binghamton, where he is expected to finish the season, while Pascal Leclaire is headed back to a spot on the injury shelf. Leclaire, who the Senators are paying $4.8 million until they rid themselves of him for good at the end of the season, will not be back in Ottawa. He played for Binghamton Saturday, but then indicated to the organization his groin injury is still an issue.
Ottawa 'unbelievable' for Anderson
