For Anderson, it's not about preventing all shots, it's about limiting access to the front of the net and clearing people and rebounds from the crease, which Ottawa has been much better at of late.

He's said as much in interviews after several games.

If anything, the team deserves a lot of credit for helping Anderson boost his stats, because they're getting to those lingering pucks first when Craig gives up a rare rebound.

In the 1st, we were giving up quality scoring chances, but as the game went on, San Jose was playing more and more of a perimeter game, which Anderson seems perfectly comfortable with.
