There was a scary moment in the Senators game when Craig Anderson needed to be carried off via stretcher after taking a hit to the head.

Adding to their list of woes is the fact the Senators could be without starting goaltender Craig Anderson.

Anderson went down hard after being hit by Valeri Nichushkin with 1:32 gone in overtime. He was taken off the ice on a stretcher after he appeared to take a knee to the head.

The Ottawa goalie was able to walk around on his own by the end of the game, but MacLean said he was suffering from a stiff neck and would require further evaluation. MacLean said he expects him to miss Tuesday’s game in Columbus

So, I don't know if you heard, but Adam Foote got his number retired.

"It's the biggest honor," Foote said after being honored at center ice with his wife, Jennifer, and their two sons, Cal and Nolan. "When these guys played, I looked up to them. I enjoyed watching these guys play. Every night I was a big fan of those guys. When you win a championship you have a special bond with those guys forever.

"All of us held each other accountable when we needed it. You can't win a championship without that. We'll all hold a special bond forever. I was so glad and happy that my number is up there beside theirs."

Steve Downie has been released from the hospital.

Philadelphia Flyers right wing Steve Downie was released from a Philadelphia hospital Sunday, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

Downie was injured during a fight with Washington Capitals forward Aaron Volpatti in the second period of the Flyers' 7-0 loss Friday. He is out indefinitely with a concussion.

"Steve is out of the hospital and doing well. Vinny [Vincent Lecavalier] is day to day."
