(AP) Scrivens gets 1st shutout, Leafs top Senators 3-0
Ben Scrivens stopped 34 shots for his first career shutout and the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the injury-ravaged Ottawa Senators 3-0 on Saturday night.
Scrivens was making his second straight start since incumbent James Reimer injured a knee in Monday night's 5-2 win over Philadelphia. The 26-year-old Scrivens has been solid as Reimer's replacement, stopping 96 of the 100 shots he has faced.
Fraser McLaren, Tyler Bozak and John-Michael Liles scored for Toronto, which earned its fifth win in six games overall and improved to 3-4 at the Air Canada Centre.
Ottawa dropped to 2-5 on the road this season despite outshooting Toronto 34-28 in the first of five matchups this season between the provincial rivals. The Senators have now dropped six of their last eight games.
