EDMONTON, Alberta -- The Ottawa Senators are going up against one of the NHLs most potent offences on Sunday with heavy hearts and a goaltending crisis.As the Senators (4-3-0) prepare for Sundays game against the host Edmonton Oilers (7-1-0), they are coping with the news that No. 1 goalie Craig Andersons wife, Nicholle, has been diagnosed with cancer. Anderson had been on leave to look after what the team had called a personal matter, but the Senators went public with the diagnosis Saturday -- and revealed that their top netminder will hurry back to be with the team.Why does Anderson need to come back? Back-up Andrew Hammond suffered a lower-body injury in Fridays 5-2 loss to Calgary. Senators general manager Pierre Dorion said Saturday that Hammond will be placed on injured reserve and will miss at least a week of action.As soon as Hammond left the game, Dorion got a phone call from Anderson.Nicole told Craig to phone me, which he did, during the game, Dorion said Saturday. We talked to Craig after the game. And, it was determined that because they were in a wait period, and they were going to drive to Ottawa together as a family today, that it would be all right for Craig to come and rejoin his team.Hes going to embraced by his teammates and its only going to help us grow as a family and as a hockey family.Chris Driedger will remain with team, and Matt OConnor was called up Saturday from the Senators AHL affiliate in Binghamton, N.Y. Dorion said both will stay with the team because Anderson could need to leave at any time to be with his wife.OConnor has one previous NHL game on his resume. When Driedger came in to replace Hammond on Friday, it was just his third career NHL game. He gave up four goals on 15 shots.Not every games going to be a shutout so youve got to be prepared for the good ones and prepared for the bad ones and just move forward, said Driedger.Whoever plays Sunday will face an Oilers team that won five in a row and scored 29 times in just eight games.Add that to Edmonton No. 1 goalie Cam Talbot, who stopped 113 of the last 114 shots hes faced. His seven wins lead the NHL.Its probably one of the best stretches of my career right now, Talbot said. Im just trying to stay focused and stay confident, and go out there and give us a chance to win every night. My mindset is to go out there and make the saves Im supposed to make and hopefully make a few that Im not supposed to make.Talbot started every game for the Oilers so far this season. Jonas Gustavsson played part of the second period in Edmontons only loss this season, a loss to Buffalo back on Oct. 16.Edmonton coach Todd McLellan said he will continue to ride Talbot.We have to win games, and Gus is very capable of doing that, Im a firm believer. But, obviously, Cam is hot. Hell be our go-to guy tomorrow against Ottawa. As we head out on the road trip, itll become a little more taxing in terms of fatigue and wear and tear.The game against the Sens will finish a season-opening stretch which saw the Oilers play six of their first nine game on Rogers Place ice. After Sundays game, Edmonton will go on a five-game road trip and begin a stretch which only sees two of its next 10 games on home ice. Pascal Siakam Raptors Jersey .

Custom Toronto Raptors Jerseys . LOUIS -- St.MINNEAPOLIS -- Brandon Roy gave it everything he had to try to resurrect a playing career derailed by chronic knee problems. He had platelet-rich plasma therapy on his knees last summer to get himself in position to sign a deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves. He worked hard in training camp to get his body in shape for the NBA after missing the previous year when he retired from Portland. And when the knee issues came up again early in the season, Roy had one more arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in a last-ditch effort to get on the court one last time. In the end, his knees wouldnt co-operate. And now his career may have come to a painful close once and for all. The Timberwolves waived Roy on Friday, which could mark the end of an All-Star career that was shortened by knee problems. "We wish Brandon and his family all the best in the future," new Timberwolves president of basketball operations Flip Saunders said in a statement issued by the team. Roy retired before last season when he couldnt alleviate the bone-on-bone pain in his knees that stopped the three-time All-Star from being the smooth, playmaking shooting guard that made him a franchise cornerstone in six seasons with the Blazers. But after getting some time to rest and trying the same advanced procedure that Kobe Bryant and others have used in the past, Roy felt good enough to try a comeback. He signed a two-year deal worth more than $$10 million to join the Timberwolves, who were desperately in need of a big, shot-making shooting guard to play alongside Ricky Rubio in the backcourt.ddddddddddddAfter a promising training camp, the knee issues quickly returned. Roy first was hurt again in a collision in a preseason game with the Indiana Pacers. He played five games at the start of the regular season, but that was all he could manage. He had arthroscopic surgery in December and tried several other methods of rehabilitation and therapy as the season progressed. Each time he thought he was getting close to returning, the pain would return. The 28-year-old Roy averaged 5.8 points and 4.6 assists in his five games with the Wolves. The second season of his deal was not guaranteed, making Roys release inevitable. The Wolves will get roughly $5.3 million in salary cap room by making the move, which will help Saunders pursue other alternatives for shooting guard this summer, which remains the teams biggest need. Free agents like O.J. Mayo or Kevin Martin, who played for coach Rick Adelman in Houston, could be possibilities, and the Wolves will also consider trading for a veteran and using their two first-round draft picks to improve its shooting from the perimeter. The Wolves will be looking to add size to the position after using Luke Ridnour, J.J. Barea and Alexey Shved, all on the smaller side, at shooting guard for most of the season. ' ' '
