Craig Anderson says the fear of being embarrassed is a motivating factor for the Ottawa Senators in Game 1 against the Pittsburgh Penguins here Tuesday.
With so many All-Stars in the lineup, headed by Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, there’s always potential for fireworks, according to Anderson.
“They’re world class players and arguably the two best in the game right now and it’s going to be a big challenge for everyone,” Anderson said following Tuesday’s late morning skate. “Everyone wants to rise to the challenge of the occasion. It’s a good challenge for our defence, for me and for our forwards backchecking, putting pressure on them.”
At the same time, Anderson says the Senators also need to pay attention to the countless solid support players in the Penguins lineup, as well.
BEST OF MAXIM
That didn't take long. The second round just got underway and Don Cherry already said something that angered fans, specifically those supporting the Ottawa Senators. What did he say this time? He ripped on the Ottawa Senators for a variety of things outside of their play on the ice, alluding to the fact that they have some feminine qualities.

The Ottawa Senators lost the first game of the series against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday by a score of 4-1, but according to CTV Ottawa’s Morning Live, that’s okay because the Sens are “bringing pesky back.” Fans have created a second-round playoff anthem, parodying Justin Timberlake’s “Sexy Back,” and turning it into “Pesky Back.” The video is both awful...
Mack – Senators Elaine – Penguins The Ottawa Senators are heading into the second round of the playoffs with tons of momentum. They beat the second seed Montreal Canadiens in game 5 with a commanding 6-1 victory to close out the series 4 to 1. The whole team contributed, but most of the help [...]
No one really likes to admit it but a lot of things change in the NHL playoffs as compared to the regular season. Fighting virtually disappears. Teams make a conscious effort to play smarter. Power play opportunities become even more precious than they normally are. Apparently the Ottawa Senators didn’t receive that memo. Know what…
Down the homestretch of the regular season, it was looking more and more likely that the Senators were gonna find themselves in the 8 seed on a collision course with the Pens. Instead, the Sens got up to the 7 seed and have dispatched of the 2nd-seeded Canadiens easily -- very easily. And that's because the Senators weren't as advertised coming in the playoffs...
Ottawa Senators pest Chris Neil is nasty and a pain to play against, but it looks like Brooks Oprik found a way to one-up him during Game 1, which the Penguins won 4-1 at Consol Energy Center.
The Penguins defenseman gave Neil a double-cup-check during the third period. Neil's one tough dude. Brooks' first cup check actually lifts Neil off of his feet!
Orpik was all over...
The Ottawa Senators will tell you that they are going to worry about playing playoff hockey and not Pittsburgh Penguins forward Matt Cooke. They will say all of the right things about being focused and not letting one person get to them. I’m not buying it. Prior to the last meeting between the Penguins and [...]
