Battle of Ontario resumes tonight
Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson and his team will look for success with the man advantage tonight.

by Todd Anderson

The Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs renew their rivalry tonight as they kick off their second home-and-home series of the season. The clubs began the 2006-07 NHL campaign on Oct. 4 and 5; Ottawa won the first game 4-1 and Toronto rebounded 6-0 a day later. Tonight the two teams meet at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto with the return match on Thursday at Scotiabank Place.

Senators head coach Bryan Murray spoke after today's pre-game skate about what style of play he expects tonight.

"I think it will be a good game. Toronto is certainly playing an attacking style and scoring, and we have to score to match that. I'm hoping it's a good up-and-down game, and we get some scoring."

Murray says Toronto became more competitive during the off-season with additions to its roster.

"Anytime you add (Mike) Peca, (Pavel) Kubina and a goaltender (Andrew Raycroft), you're going to be better. When you get new people, you send the message to your organization that we're not happy and we want to be better."

The Senators enter tonight's game riding a high after an 8-1 victory on Saturday against the New Jersey Devils to win their first home game of the season. Antoine Vermette and Dean McAmmond each scored twice in the game that featured a total of 13 Senators receiving at least one point.

Captain Daniel Alfredsson said after today's pre-game skate that he's hoping the team can get its power play going tonight.

"It's been a big concern for us. It's something we want to get on the right foot right away. It's been a major part of why we haven't been able to win the one-goal games. If we can get that going, it will take pressure off our five-on-five game for sure."

Martin Gerber will start in goal for Ottawa tonight.
