Welcome to Andytown, FLA

Andy2 Yes, Virginia, Craig Anderson will get another start in net Saturday night when the big, bad Bruins roll into town trying to blow the Panthers down.

Anderson has been stellar in net of late, and will be making his fifth straight start.

Here are some numbers to chew on:

Anderson is 6-1-3;

Anderson is 14-3-3 since Jan. 3 (he was winless -- in 2007-08 -- heading into that start);

Since taking over for Vokoun in the second period against New Jersey, he's stopped 172 of 180 shots;

Thursday, he made 45 saves on 46 shots.

Pete DeBoer says it hasn't been hard choosing Anderson over Tomas Vokoun, praising the veteran for how he's handled this recent turn of events. And, DeBoer adds, he could care less that Vokoun is the second highest paid player on the bench, and that money never comes into who he gives playing time to.

Me thinks there are a few people in the Florida front office not too happy to be seeing $5-plus million sitting on the bench, though.

Good for Andy; he's going to get paid this offseason, bet on that.
