          Sooo the heartbreaking news is Nicholle has been diagnosed with cancer :(

          Dorion just said they are on their way back to Ottawa and Andy will rejoin the team soon.

            This is exactly what I feared it was. Absolutely terrible news.

              Really sad news. I can't think of a sports team who's been affected by so much in such a little amount of time.

                You're right, there has been so many people affected by serious stuff in their personal lives around this team, in a short span of time - It makes for a very 'real' and though environment to be in...however it has a tendency to bring people together. Lets hope everyone comes out of all this with as little damage as possible.

                Best of luck to the Anderson familly, specially Nicholle

                    This on top of splitting time between Ottawa and Florida and raising two kids, let's hope she beats this!

                      Well, after acquiring Mike Condon, the Sens granted Anderson another leave of absence and he's gone again.

                      A pretty remarkable situation. His wife gets diagnosed with cancer. Upon seeing the backup goalie go down to injury and the team needing an NHL goalie, his wife tells him to go back. He does and lets in one goal on 70 shots and gets the Sens 4 points. The Sens then trade for another goalie and it gives him the comfort to go back to his sick wife.

                      I don't know how you can come in and play so well under circumstances like that. Anderson is a beast. I had the pleasure to meet him once and he was the most respectful and down-to-earth player I've met.

                        While I've never met him, this is exactly how I imagine he is based on how he plays and what little interview time I've seen.

                          It makes me all fuzzy inside that the organisation went and got someone so he could go back to her - where he should be. Hope its only a bump in the road and she beats this crap!!!!

                              Last week, they had to postpone my chemo due to my white blood cells being low. I was a little bummed because I just wanted things to be checked off my list. I really don’t look forward to chemo days. Today, we went to the infusion center, and I RECEIVED MY LAST CHEMO today. HOORAY! A chemo day takes approximately 9 hours plus attending radiation. Craig and I have been up since 7 a.m. and still at the infusion at 8 p.m. LONG DAY! FULL-TIME JOB!
                              In addition, my last radiation will be Thursday, January 19, 2017. Since we have three days left, Craig and I refer to the guys’ hockey jersey numbers. We have Marc Methot left.
                              P.S. I have been singing, “I’m coming home, I’m coming home, tell the world I’m coming home.” I’m so excited to go back to Canada and have a little normalcy.
