Ottawa Senators goalie Craig Anderson received a scare on Sunday afternoon when he took the thigh of Stars rookie Valeri Nichushkin to the head. Anderson sprawled out on the ice and did not move until the medical staff came out to have a look.
Here is a photo of Anderson after the collision:
The good news is that Anderson was spotted walking around after being stretchered off the field and the team is saying it was just a stiff neck.
Update on Craig Anderson: He has a stiff neck and will receive further evaluation tomorrow. It is unlikely he will play Tuesday.

We hope that the evaluation goes well and that Anderson will be able to return to the ice sooner rather than later.
