Battle of Ontario highlights Sunday's schedule
The Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators, two of the NHL's hottest teams, meet for this season's second edition of the Battle of Ontario in one of four games on Sunday's NHL schedule.
The Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators, two of the NHL's hottest teams, meet for this season's second edition of the Battle of Ontario in one of four games on Sunday's NHL schedule.

Scotiabank Place figures to be packed as the provincial rivals get together after emotional wins on Saturday. The Senators rallied from a 4-1 third-period deficit to beat the New York Rangers 5-4 in a shootout, while the Leafs improved to 7-2-1 by outlasting Pittsburgh 4-3.

The game gets under way at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Sunday's action begins an hour earlier in Columbus, where the Blue Jackets and visiting Anaheim Ducks both will try to rebound after road losses on Saturday. Anaheim was blanked 3-0 in Nashville, while the Jackets lost 5-2 at Chicago.

At 8 p.m. ET, the Los Angeles Kings come to Colorado, where the Avs haven't won in three tries this season. L.A. lost 3-2 at Phoenix on Saturday, while the Avs were beaten 3-1 by Edmonton at home on Friday.

Also at 8, the Oilers, one of the surprises of the early season at 6-2-2, are back home to face St. Louis, which concludes its road swing in Western Canada. The Blues won 3-0 at Vancouver on Wednesday but lost 3-1 at Calgary on Friday.
Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
