PHOENIX — Craig Anderson will be in goal for the 14th straight game as the Ottawa Senators try to snap a two-game losing streak against the Phoenix Coyotes.

Anderson started but was replaced after two periods by Alex Auld in Monday’s 4-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

Coach Paul MacLean will also make one lineup change, putting Matt Carkner in on defence and taking out Mark Borowiecki.

This is the last of a five-game road trip and the team’s final game before the all-star break.

Their next game will be on Jan. 31 against the Bruins in Boston.

The Coyotes are as desperate for a win as the Senators.

They’ve lost three in a row and are 2-4-4 in their last 10.
