Toronto Maple Leafs in Six Minutes
TORONTO – The Toronto Maple Leafs continue to make believers out of their fans. The Leafs kept their winning streak going in a 6-3 doubling over the Ottawa Senators. Ottawa got off to a 2-0 lead and held that margin until the halfway point of the first period.
However Toronto stormed back pounding Ottawa like an ice storm to come out on top in a action filled second half of the game.
Toronto has Ottawa’s number this season as the Leafs have beaten the Senators in all three games the two Ontario rivals have played.
