On Thursday night against the New York Rangers, Ottawa goaltender Craig Anderson was crashed into by New York's Chris Kreider at 18:17 of the third period and keeled over, lying face first in obvious pain on the ice while the trainer attended to him.
Already without their top forward and the reigning Norris Trophy winning defenceman, the Ottawa Senators hope they've avoided a serious injury to the league leader in goals-against average.

During the third period of Thursday night's 3-2 win over the New York Rangers, Ottawa goaltender Craig Anderson was crashed into by New York's Chris Kreider at 18:17 of the third period and keeled over, lying face first in obvious pain on the ice while the trainer attended to him. 

Kreider was heading to the net and got tangled up with Senators defenceman Marc Methot, taking out the goalie and forcing him out of the game with an ankle injury.

Ottawa head coach Paul MacLean showed some optimism as he told reporters after the game his goaltender was day-to-day. 

The Senators have already lost forward Jason Spezza and defenceman Erik Karlsson to long-term injuries this season.
