Anders Nilsson turned away 35 of 38 shots on goal in Ottawa's 4-3 victory over Detroit on Tuesday night. Nilsson improved his record for the season to 6-4-1.
Nilsson has now strung together five wins in his last six starts and in the process has overtaken Craig Anderson for the majority of starts through 21 games (11-10). Plain and simple, Nilsson has been the better goaltender for the Senators this season. If he keeps up anything near the rate of play that he's had during his scorching November (5-1-0, .930 SV%, 2.33 GAA in six starts), he's a solid fantasy play. On the season, he's boasting a 2.79 GAA and a .924 save percentage, the sixth-best rate in the NHL.
