To say Mike Condon has been the Ottawa Senators' saving grace this season would be an understatement.

The Senators netminder recorded his fifth shutout of the year Thursday against the New Jersey Devils, becoming the fastest goalie in Senators history to hit the mark, doing so in just his 32nd game of the season.

Condon improves to 17-9-5 on the season with a 2.45 goals-against average and a .915 save percentage.

The victory also puts the Senators two points up on the Boston Bruins for second spot in the Atlantic Division and sees them just four points behind the Montreal Canadiens for top spot with three games in hand.
