Even without Sundin, Leafs manage to Tie one on

 TORONTO -- No captain?

 No problem.

  The Maple Leafs didn't have captain and offensive leader Mats Sundin in the lineup last night, laid low by a suspected hip injury.

 But, as they always seem to do against the Senators, the Leafs found a way to gut it out, getting the winning goal in their 2-0 victory from their fourth line to take a 3-2 lead in their best-of-seven Eastern Conference quarter-final.

 "I think everybody did their part," said Leafs enforcer Tie Domi, who was credited with the winner less than two minutes into the third period. "Everybody stepped up."

 Domi was robbed by Senators goalie Patrick Lalime on the front end of a 2-on-1 with teammate Robert Reichel after the Senators had turned puck over inside the Leafs blue line.

 But the rebound bounced off Senators forward Bryan Smolinski and found the back of the net for what turned out to be the winner.

 "I almost fainted (when Lalime made the save)," said Domi. "I had a lot of speed because I knew Robert was going to make that pass. I kept my feet going. I tried to go five-hole. You know what they say: 'When in doubt, go five-hole.' He made a nice save. I couldn't believe it.

 "Then Robert almost ripped my head off (in the celebration). I didn't know he was that strong."
