Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson was carried off the ice on a stretcher after he collided with with Stars right wing Valeri Nichushkin in overtime in Ottawa's 4-3 loss to Dallas on Sunday.

Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson sustained an injury and was carried off the ice in his team's 4-3 loss to the Dallas Stars on Saturday.

According to the Ottawa Citizen's James Gordon, Anderson "stayed motionless on the ice after he was run over by Stars rookie Valeri Nichuskin, and a hush fell over the arena as trainer Gerry Townend ran out to assess the situation. Chants of 'Andy! Andy!' occasionally punctured the silence as paramedics lifted him into the stretcher and as he waved while being rolled off the ice." 

Anderson appears to be out of danger as medical personnel said going to the hospital wasn't necessary. The Senators goaltender was already on his feet and "walking around" after the game, per Gordon.

Robin Lehner replaced Anderson after the unfortunate hit. The latter has a stiff neck, per Ottawa head coach Paul McLean. In addition, the NHL's official website reported on Nov. 3 that he is slated to sit out the game against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday. 

McLean said,"Everything else seems to be fine." 

As for the game, the 18-year-old Nichuskin, the 10th pick of the 2013 NHL Draft, scored his first career goal off Anderson in the second period. 

Two other Stars players -- Ray Whitney and Antoine Roussel -- scored their first goals of the season. Dallas led 3-2 when Ottawa defenseman Mark Borowiecki "accidentally tapped the puck past his own goalie with 17 minutes left to play," according to the Dallas Morning News' Mike Heika. 

The Senators' Bobby Ryan then scored on a broken-stick goal off a Milan Michalek assist with 9.3 seconds left in regulation

The game then proceeded to overtime and then a shooutout, where Dallas center Jamie Benn was the only one to score for both teams. 

Benn's efforts earned the Stars two points to start off their three-game road trip. He emphasized the importance of those points at the conclusion of the game. 

"It's obviously big to get those two and start the road trip off on the right foot. It wasn't an easy two points and we really didn't help ourselves out too much. We gave up a couple, but found a way to win in the shootout." 

Dallas upped its record to 6-6-2 while Ottawa remained winless in five consecutive games, dropping to 4-6-4.
