History shows that Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson will have to be much better for the team to make the National Hockey League playoffs. In the past five seasons, only one NHL team - the 2006-07 Tampa Bay Lightning - has made the postseason when its No. 1 goaltender had a save percentage below .900. The Lightning squad featured the forgettable combination of Johan Holmqvist and Marc Denis. Anderson currently sits below that magic .900 mark, fashioning a mediocre .895 save percentage.
