Dorion: Sens G Anderson experiences a concussion

Ottawa Senators, scorer Craig Anderson facing a concussion and will miss a back-to-back match this weekend, general manager Pierre Dorion announced Thursday.

Anderson was withdrawn from Friday's start against New Jersey Satan shortly after the collision with the attacker Miles Wood and was forced to lose Saturday's defeat against the Washington Capitals due to an upper body injury.

Anderson is 14-13-3 for the Senator this season with .905 save percetange and 3.58 GAA.

The team remembers the goalkeeper Marcus Hogberg from Senator Belleville AHL on Thursday. Hogberg, 24, is 3-3 in this season's AHL with a save percentage of 0.916 and an average of 2.32 goals against the average.

Mike McKenna starting at Anderson's place on Saturday, allowing four goals with 33 shots in a 4-0 defeat. He was 1-3-1 with Senators this season, posting a saving percentage of 0.902 and 3.79 goals-compared to the average.

Head coach Guy Boucher said both McKenna and Hogberg will get early this week, even though the order hasn't been determined.

The Senators visited New York Islanders on Friday before returning home to host the Washington Capitals on Saturday.

Dorion also announced Thursday that the defender Justin Falk will miss the next two team contests after also experiencing a concussion. 30 years have no points in 10 matches with Senators this season.
