Craig Anderson Ready For The Challenge

from Ken Warren of Senators Extra,

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.
