Craig Anderson is good to go.

Out since Feb. 21 with a high ankle sprain, the NHL's leading goalie has declared he's ready to return to action, Senators GM Bryan Murray said after trading Ben Bishop Wednesday.

"That's what I've been told," said Murray. "I don't know if he'll play in Buffalo (Friday). That's up to (coach) Paul (MacLean). But he has told us he's ready to play."

Anderson's availability and the play of 21-year-old Robin Lehner convinced Murray it was safe to deal Bishop for some much-needed scoring help.
