Anderson's record against us is .500 in the past three seasons.
His save percentage over the Habs the past three seasons .931, .879., 953
It's also worth noting that Anderson only played two games against us this year and we split with him.
Which stats do you want to look at? Anderson's had a better season but he's only played 24 games. Dude, 24 games is nothing. Yeah, he's been great but let's keep things in perspective. ANY goalie can get hot (look at Martin Biron a few years back) and maybe he will beat us. But I'm just fine going into that series with Price and you should be too.
Fair points and honestly i didn't look at Price stats vs the Sens but those are encouraging. And i am confident in Price going into the series. When i say the Sens may have a slight edge in goaltending due to Anderson being hot i don't mean a huge gap like Dan Cloutier vs Patrick Roy. Both are good goalies but Anderson at his best was just stellar this year , more so than Price.
Either way we'll see what happens soon enough
