OTTAWA – Mike Condon made 19 saves to pick up his first NHL victory as the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Ottawa Senators 3-1 Sunday night.

The 25-year-old, making his NHL debut, spoiled the Senators home opener for the 19,177 on hand at Canadian Tire Centre.

Tomas Plekanec, with two goals, and Torrey Mitchell scored for the Canadiens, who remain undefeated (3-0-0) to start the season.

Jean-Gabriel Pageau scored the lone goal for the Senators (2-1-0), while Matt O’Connor made 31 saves in his NHL debut.

Both teams were playing the second of back-to-back games.

The Canadiens held a 2-1 lead going into the third and while both teams created a number of great chances to start the period it was the Canadiens who were able to regain a two-goal lead on Mitchell’s goal at the five-minute mark.
