Elliott, Senators aim to win third straight game

Toronto (26-27-13) at Ottawa (25-29-10), 7:30 p.m. EDT

OTTAWA (Ticker) — Rookie goaltender Brian Elliott and the
Ottawa Senators look to extend their winning streak to three
games on Monday, when they host the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Ottawa snapped a three-game skid with a 4-2 victory over the
Edmonton Oilers on Thursday and built off that success by
posting a 6-3 win over the Buffalo Sabres two days later.

Elliott had started only twice in favor of Alex Auld in nine
contests prior to being in goal for both of the Senators’ recent
wins. The 23-year-old Elliott is 9-4-3 with a 2.81
goals-against average this season.

Toronto is coming off a 4-1 drubbing at the hands of the Oilers
on Saturday, falling to 1-1-1 since recording a season-high
four-game winning streak.

The Maple Leafs have earned points in eight of their last nine
contests, but are 11 points away from catching Pittsburgh,
Florida and the New York Rangers for the eighth and final spot
in the Eastern Conference.
