Despite the good work of Alex Auld in helping the Senators get past the Predators, coach Paul MacLean will go right back to Craig Anderson for today’s game against the Edmonton Oilers.
Anderson had started 18 straight games before watching Thursday’s, but MacLean said his intention wasn’t to give his No. 1 goalie a rest.
“I just felt it was time to play Alex and then we’ll go right back to Craig,” he said.
For his part, Auld said he was happy to have had the start.
“It was a big win for the team and for me personally,” he said.
“It was good to get back in and get a win. I think we’ll have some positive feelings going forward.”
