Anderson, Senators beat Canadiens 3-0 in NHL 100 Classic

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) The Senators needed a big effort from their top players Saturday night, and they got it.

Craig Anderson stopped 28 shots for his 40th career shutout, leading Ottawa to a 3-0 victory over the Montreal Canadiens in the NHL 100 Classic outdoor game. Jean-Gabriel Pageau, Bobby Ryan and Nate Thompson scored to help the Senators get consecutive wins for the first time in more than a month.

"We knew we needed to have a good game," said captain Erik Karlsson, who had one assists while playing a season-high 32:55. "We didn't know what to expect, what type of game it was going to be, but I think we came out strong and we finished strong. I don't think we strayed from the kind of game that needed to be played in an atmosphere like this."
