With the NHL celebrating its 100th anniversary, there was an outdoor game played at Lansdowne Park in Ottawa, Ontario between the Montreal Canadiens and the Ottawa Senators for the NHL 100 Classic. Craig Anderson’s 28 saves sparked the Senators to a 3-0 win. It was a very cold game outside and the temperature was around nine degrees Fahrenheit at game time.
J.G. Pageau scored the ice-breaker for the Senators with 5:05 remaining in the second-period and Erik Karlsson set him up for it with a redirection. Bobby Ryan scored for the Senators with under three minutes remaining in the game. Nate Thompson scored an empty-net goal for the Senators with 11 seconds remaining.
Carey Price made 35 saves for the Canadiens. These two teams will meet each other one more time this season.
