THE SKINNY: Is expected to start vs. the Senators tonight ... Didn't play during the NHL lockout ... Finished seventh in Vezina Trophy and 10th in voting for the Hart Trophy as the league's MVP during the 2003-04 season ... Ranks first in the league among active goaltenders in career victories. He has 453, while Senators G Dominik Hasek ranks fourth with 319 ... Is in his fourth season with the Leafs ... Was the No. 3 goalie for Team Canada at the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City. Wasn't selected to go to Turin.

NOTEWORTHY:

G Dominik Hasek will make his seventh straight start in the Ottawa net and he's also expected to play in Monday's second game of this back-to-back series ... The Leafs have lost four straight coming into tonight's game and they've been outscored 18-12 in that stretch ... This is going to be a big night at the building: Senators owner Eugene Melnyk and NHL commissioner Gary Bettman will be on hand for tonight's game to celebrate the official unveiling of the name Scotiabank Place ... Ottawa captain Daniel Alfredsson and C Jason Spezza lead the club with 17 multi-point games this season ... The Leafs will practise in Ottawa tomorrow instead of returning to Toronto between games.
