The Senators top goaltender, who set a franchise record with his 147th career victory with Ottawa in Saturday’s 4 2 decision against the Colorado Avalanche, has a lower body injury and there is no timetable for his return.

Senators head coach Guy Boucher told reporters the ailment flared up after Saturday’s game in Denver, but didn’t provide any further information. Mike Condon made the start in Tuesday’s home game against the Tampa Bay Lightning and Chris Driedger was recalled from the club’s American Hockey League affiliate in Binghamton to dress as the backup to Condon.

“At the end of the last game, there was something that didn’t seem very big at the moment, but now we’re checking it out further on it. We’ll find out later on about it,” Boucher said.

While its believed Anderson’s injury isn’t serious, the Senators wanted to do a further examination before providing an update on his status and they’ve got their fingers crossed he’ll return soon. The club is fortunate it has Condon because he has been in this position previously.

The Senators did get forwards Kyle Turris and Bobby Ryan back from broken fingers for Tuesday’s game Matt Puempel Jersey,

“I got cleared Monday and I feel fine,” said Ryan, who has had similar injuries before and will now try to get fitted with a special glove for next season. “We’re on the lower end of the timetable I was given, but I’m really happy and it’s really positive.”

Winger Mark Stone’s lower body injury will sideline him until at least next Tuesday’s game against the Boston Bruins and possibly longer.

“Right now, the doctors tell me it’s week to week. ‘Basically don’t bother me for the next week, it’s not day to day,’ ” Boucher said. “We don’t want to say it’s day to day. It’s at least a week and then from there we don’t know.”

Defenceman Mark Borowiecki has a lower body injury and isn’t ready to come back.
