Canadiens win matchup of rookie goaltenders

OTTAWA — The Canadiens' Mike Condon made 20 saves to win a battle of rookie goaltenders in a 3-1 victory against the Senators on Sunday.

Condon and the Senators' Matthew O'Connor became the first starting goalies to make their NHL debuts in the same game since Oct. 14, 1967, when Wayne Rutledge of the Kings faced Doug Favell of the Flyers, the Elias Sports Bureau said.

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

Around the league: Sabres goalie Robin Lehner is out six to 10 weeks with a high ankle sprain suffered in Thursday's season opener.
