8* Saturday NHL OTT/TOR
Ottawa vs. Toronto,
10/05/2013 19:00 EDT,
Score: 4 - 5
Money Line: -135 Toronto
The Toronto Maple Leafs host the Ottawa Senators in Atlantic Division action on Saturday night. The Leafs are coming off of back-to-back wins over the Habs and Flyers, while the Sens won a tightly contested 1-0 affair in Buffalo on Friday night.
The Leafs have been dominant against the Senators in the last few seasons. Toronto has won six of their last seven matchups against Ottawa. More importantly, Toronto's star play, Phil Kessel, has put up an impressive 10 points in that span.
The Leafs are expected to go back to netminder James Reimer for this contest. Reimer is 8-1-1 with three shutouts and a 1.69 goals-against average in 10 career starts versus Ottawa. Reimer also stopped 34 shots in the club's season-opening win over Montreal on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Ottawa is coming off of a tough, emotional victory on Friday night. Back-to-back spots early in the season aren't as much of a factor as they are later in the year, but they still play a factor.
The Maple Leafs are 6-1 in their last 7 Saturday games dating back to last season.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
