The Ottawa Senators welcome the Toronto Maple Leafs to down looking to build a winning streak. The Senators are hoping to rebound on a 2-1, shootout defeat at the hands of visiting Winnipeg on Saturday night. Matthew Perrault gave the Jets a hard earned victory with a goal in round number six to send visitors off in celebration. This one had the makings of a high scoring affair with the first period ending 1-1 but the respective defenses and goalies took over from there. Tobias Enstrom scored Winnipeg's lone regulation goal which made a winner of Ondrej Pavelec and his 37 stops. The Senators lone tally came off the stick of Chris Neil with the man advantage while Craig Anderson recorded 36 saves as the Senators were denied a third consecutive win.
