The Battle of Ontario's battle for TV viewers is intensifying.

Rogers Sportsnet Ontario announced yesterday it has expanded its Leafs coverage to an area spanning from Petawawa in the north to Kingston in the east for 28 Leafs games on the network.

"This solves a longstanding problem for Leafs fans in the outer Ottawa Valley and Kingston," Tom Anselmi, executive vice-president and COO of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Ltd., said. "It's great news for fans of both the Leafs and Senators because they'll continue to receive the broadcasts they've been getting, but can now also watch games played by the other Ontario team."

Leafs' Nikolai Kulemin and Mikhail Grabovski will be among 100 NHLers testing a revised version of the Thermablade heated skate next month.
