Anderson replaced Marcus Hogberg with just over eight minutes remaining in the second period. He inherited a 3-0 deficit, but played outstandingly to allow the Senators to get within one goal. The Leafs potted an empty-net goal as the 38-year old was on the bench in favor of an extra attacker. It was a no-decision appearance for Anderson, but he improved his goals-against average and save percentage to 3.21 and .901, respectively.
