Game 24: Toronto Maple Leafs @ Ottawa Senators

It's time for another Battle of Ontario tonight, with each team coming off a Friday night loss and looking for bragging rights in their home province. The Senators are in the midst of a terrible slide, having lost six of their last eight games and scoring more than two goals only once in that span. A win against the Maple Leafs would be a huge morale boost for a team that could really use one right about now.

Who will I be watching?

  • Brian Elliott: He's had a few rough outings recently, which is why Pascal Leclaire has been starting the last few games. Elliott gets the start tonight due to a back-to-back, let's see if he makes the most of it.
  • Pretty much all of Ottawa's forwards: the Senators need scoring in a big way. The forwards need to step up and show that they can produce.
  • Erik Karlsson & Sergei Gonchar: If the forwards can't score, it'll be up to these two.
  • Phil Kessel: Sens killer yet again?
