Nick Foligno and Chris Neil had the Senators' goals, and Ray Emery made 22 saves. Ottawa was whistled for six penalties — three on Andrej Meszaros — all in the first two periods.

Toronto, which entered the game 28th in the league on the power play, was 1-for-6 with the man advantage.

Moore, claimed off waivers from Minnesota on Jan. 11, banged a rebound past Emery at 9:32 of the first period for his first goal in 10 games for the Leafs. Tlusty made it 2-0 when he beat Mike Fisher to a rebound and backhanded it in at 14:27 on a power play for his fifth goal of the season.

Foligno deflected in Randy Robitaille's pass out of a corner at 15:18 for his sixth of the season, and the Senators trailed 2-1 after one period despite being outshot 12-3.

Neil converted a rebound of his own shot to tie the score at 1:32 of the third period. Toskala went down to stop his first shot, and with defencemen Hal Gill and Anton Stralman off in a corner and behind the net, Neil got the rebound, glided across the crease and slipped the puck into the open net for his sixth goal of the season.

Colaiacovo, skating in only his eighth game because of injuries, broke the tie at 4:28 when he rushed to the net to get a cross-crease pass from Robbie Earl and sent the puck into the open side of the net for his first goal of the season. Earl was appearing in his first NHL game, and got his first point.

Blake took advantage of some shoddy play by Richardson and fellow defenceman Joe Corvo to close the scoring. Blake, breaking to the net, took a pass from Matt Stajan and beat Emery with a wrist shot at 8:08.

Notes: Leafs D Bryan McCabe (broken hand) missed his 21st consecutive game. He is expected to miss at least two more weeks. Toronto was also without F Nik Antropov (suspension), RW Alex Steen (dislocated shoulder), LW Alexei Ponikarovsky (dislocated shoulder), LW Chad Kilger (personal reasons), F Mark Bell (broken orbital bone) and C John Pohl (sprained ankle). ... The Senators were missing LW Daniel Alfredsson (hip flexor), RW Dany Heatley (dislocated shoulder), RW Patrick Eaves (shoulder/neck) and D Chris Phillips (flu).
