I read it today and it’s so true.
Sometimes Sports doesn’t matter, and sometimes it says so much.
This is one of those great moments in Sports.
The Ottawa Senators Number 1 Goalie, Craig Anderson, has posted 2 Shutout wins in a row on the road — which is quite the feat. For his efforts, he’s been named the NHL Player of the Week, and was last nights 1st Star in the win against the Edmonton Oilers.
It’s what happened in between his two wins that has people talking.
You see Craig’s wife Nicholle was diagnosed with Cancer late last week and Anderson immediately left the team, on leave, to be by his wife’s side.
When the Sens ran into Goaltending problems due to injuries, it was Nicholle who told her hubby to get back to work and help his team-mates!
Wow, what a story.
Watch the Oilers Goalie Cam Talbot show his class, respect and concern as he stayed back to applaud Anderson.
Bobby Ryan said there ‘wasn’t a dry eye” in the dressing room after the game.
We wish the very best to Craig and Nicholle, their families and their extended family, the Ottawa Senators.
Nicholle is our 1st Star today, and I am sure Craig Anderson would completely agree.
