The Senators are 29th in the home power-play rankings.

“You tell me. I’ve been trying to answer that question for 50 games,” Ottawa coach Paul MacLean said. “I’m not sure if it’s a comfort level or what it is, but we’ve got to keep working on it. We believe that if we continue to work at it, it’s going to get good everywhere.”

Anderson was coming off a 2-0 victory Tuesday at Washington, which was the Senators‘ second straight road shutout.

NOTES: Tampa Bay star Steven Stamkos, sidelined since breaking his right shin on Nov. 11, was OK after taking a spill during a drill at the team’s morning skate. “I was kind of laughing,” Stamkos said. “It’s the first time I’ve fallen in 10 weeks. Just knowing that everything was fine, you get right back up, I didn’t feel anything whatsoever. So, that’s nice.” Stamkos, who hasn’t ruled out playing in the Sochi Olympics next month, was scheduled to have X-rays Thursday night to see how the leg is progressing. … MacLean used the same lineup as the Washington game, including D Marc Methot being scratched. … Chicago Blackhawks senior adviser and 13-time Stanley Cup winner Scotty Bowman, a regular at Lightning home games, is scheduled to have right knee replacement surgery Friday in Tampa.
