With the fifth edition of the Battle of Ontario going tonight and crucial playoff positioning on the line, the Sens will turn to Craig Anderson in goal when the puck drops against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Anderson has only matched up against the Leafs once this season and played well. He stopped 26 of 28 shots en route to a 3-0 Sens loss, but those who recall the game will remember that the goals against were the living embodiment of 'puck luck'. A shot off a hip here, a bank off a skate there and an empty netter did the job. Point is: Andy was very, very good.

In 11 career games against the Maple Leafs, Anderson has a 6-4-0 record with a 2.51 GAA and .928 save percentage. His first game as a Senator on February 19, 2010, came against Toronto and he endeared himself to Sens faithful with a 47 save shutout victory in a 1-0 win that required a shootout.

Anderson is 11-10-3 all-time in the month of April with a 2.42 GAA and .919 save percentage, and 25-23-11 all-time on Saturday nights with a 2.96 GAA and .910 save percentage.
