Anderson, Panthers look to extend season-long win streak

Florida (11-11-3) at Boston (17-4-4), 7:30 pm EST

SUNRISE, Florida (Ticker) -- Craig Anderson has been the force

behind the Florida Panthers' resurgence.

The Panthers will likely send Anderson to the crease once again

as they aim for their season-best fourth straight victory

against the Boston Bruins on Saturday.

Anderson made 45 saves Thursday to lead the Panthers to a 2-1

triumph over the Buffalo Sabres. The 26-year-old Anderson, who

has started each of the last four games, was vulnerable only

during a 5-on-3 advantage for Buffalo.

"He was great and especially when we needed him the most,"

Florida coach Peter DeBoer said of Anderson. "You go with the

guy with the hot hand, and he's been all that and more."

"They were throwing everything they had at me, and then some,"

Anderson said. "The guys did a terrific job of cleaning up the

rebounds."

Gregory Campbell opened the scoring with 4:18 left in the second

period and set up defenseman Keith Ballard's goal 35 seconds

later for the Panthers, who improved to 4-0-2 in their last six.

Anderson's mission to continue the win streak will not be easy

against the Bruins, who own the Eastern Conference's best record

and highest-scoring offense.

Boston is also sporting a three-game winning streak after

posting a 3-1 triumph over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday.
