Leafs Replay

LANCE HORNBY, SUN MEDIA

OLD TIME HOCKEY

The Leafs held yet another pre-game ceremony, this one to mark "Homecoming Night." Honoured were defenceman Ian Turnbull, who scored five goals in one game, 1964 Stanley Cup hero Bob Baun and Wally Stanowski, whose four Cups included the 1942 final when the Leafs trailed Detroit 3-0 in the series and came back to win it.

NO REPEATS

Alex Ovechkin wasted little time in getting back on the scoreboard last night after being shut out for just the fourth time this season on Friday night against Montreal. It has been 56 games since Ovie has gone without points in consecutive games.

FIRST THINGS FIRST

Washington scored first for the 18th time in 23 games this season, while Toronto gave up the first goal for the 18th time in 21 starts. The Caps are in first place in the Eastern Conference for the first time since April 7, 2000.
