Pascal Leclaire. Coming into the game, the Senators weren't sure what they were going to get from Leclaire but he turned in a steady performance and shut the door in the third turning away all 15 shots.

In all, Leclaire stopped 30 of 32 shots to record his seventh win of the season in 14 games. The Senators are now 2-0 against the Leafs this season.

After missing practice on Monday, Ian White played one of his best games of the season against the Senators.

White saw the most ice-time among all the players on Tuesday playing 26:10 with one assist, a plus one rating, two shots and one block shot.

The Battle Of Ontario was like the good old days on Tuesday with four fighting majors. There were three in the first and one in the second. 

Colton Orr was in his seventh fight of the year with Matt Carkner and Orr was the easy victor dropping Carkner with a big right.

Ron Wilson on his team's play Tuesday:

"A couple of sloppy plays in the neutral zone resulted in all three goals."
