MAPLE LEAFS (30-20-8) at SENATORS (19-27-11)
7 p.m. ET; CBC, SNO, SNW, SNP, NHL.TV
Jack Campbell will make his fourth start for the Toronto Maple Leafs when they visit the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Center on Saturday.
The goalie is 2-0-1 with a 2.52 goals-against average and .918 save percentage in three starts for the Maple Leafs, which acquired him in a trade with the Los Angeles Kings on Feb. 6.
Toronto, 2-3-1 in its past six games after going 4-1-1 in its previous six, is in third place in the Atlantic Division, two points ahead of the fourth-place Florida Panthers.
The Senators will try for their second win in eight games; they are 1-4-2 in their past seven and 3-9-7 in their past 19.
Ottawa coach D.J. Smith did not name a starting goalie; Craig Anderson and Marcus Hogberg each took part in an optional morning skate. Hogberg made 32 saves in a 3-2 win against the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday.
Players to watch
Maple Leafs center John Tavares has nine points (five goals, four assists) in a six-game point streak.
Senators forward Anthony Duclair has gone 19 games without scoring a goal.
They said it
"Be it the Battle of Ontario, be it the number of former Leafs that are on the [Senators], including D.J. [Smith] himself, the game means a lot to Ottawa, and we've got to make sure that it means a lot to us. Because it certainly does for all those same reasons, and in addition to the fact that we're in a battle here, as we all know, right through to the very end." -- Maple Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe
"I don't think a game like today needs a ton of guys to get the emotion up. I think when you have a sold-out crowd, you're playing Toronto, guys will be fired up and ready." -- Senators coach D.J. Smith
