Anderson had been nursing a lower-body injury, but he'll return in the minimum amount of time in order to take the start on the second night of a back-to-back. Backup Anders Nilsson has struggled of late, so Anderson has the opportunity to seize some playing time. He will carry an underwhelming 4-8-0 record into the game, along with a 2.96 GAA and .904 SV%. On the bright side, Anderson had conceded two goals or less in three out of four starts prior to his injury.
