Toronto is winless in its first two games and is coming off a 6-4 loss to the Capitals in Washington ... Coach Ron Wilson still hasn't said who will start in goal tonight. It's expected G Jonas Gustavsson will make his first NHL start ... With C Wayne Primeau hurting, the Leafs changed their lines yesterday at practice. If Primeau can't play, he'll likely be replaced by F Nikolai Kumelin.

NO CONCERNS

Senators coach Cory Clouston said it doesn't matter if Gustavsson or the struggling Vesa Toskala starts in goal. "Our game plan shouldn't change because of who we're playing," said Clouston. "Some guys have certain tendencies and strengths and weaknesses, but the plan still has to be to get more traffic in front (of the net). We need more second and third opportunities. We have to get the goaltender moving more east-west and get them to open up."

TIDBITS

Ottawa RW Shean Donovan will replace injured C Ryan Shannon. Donovan was a healthy scratch in the opener ... D Matt Carkner, D Erik Karlsson and C Peter Regin will face the Leafs for the first time.

INJURIES

Senators: C Jesse Winchester (knee), two weeks; C Ryan Shannon (head), day-to-day. Leafs: C Wayne Primeau (undisclosed), day-to-day; D Mike Van Ryn (knee), out; RW Phil Kessel (shoulder), early December.
