Maple Leafs Dominate Senators

It was evening that James Reimer didn't want to stop but who really could blame him.

The Leafs handily beat the Ottawa Senators 5-0 in the Canadian Capital on Saturday evening in front of a robust crowd of Leaf fans and Sens fans who even though about duking it out themselves!

Reimer made 49 saves while his counterpart, Anderson faced 40 shots who had very little help from his teammates this evening.

Phil Kessel who had a three point night, including a game winning goal. Along with Kessel getting the job done a few of his teammates chipped in as well. Dion Phaneuf, Tyler Bozak, Luke Schenn and Cody Franson also scored.

With this win the Leafs sit in eighth only one point back of the Sens who remain in seventh.

One aspect of the game for the Leafs that seems to be improving as we go deeper into the final stretch is the Leafs penalty killing. They have not allowed a goal against in the last 14 games, again last night it was really big!

As every hockey fan will tell you, going into the playoffs you need special teams firing on all cylinders to make a dent. As it looks now the Leafs are going strong and if the stars can stay aligned then this could be the year at least the Leafs may see some post season action.

Next Leafs game is Feb 6th 2012 vs Edmonton.
