Nobody was hurt, but the Ottawa Senators did suffer a couple of unfortunate breaks last night.

Not one, but two goals were called back as Ottawa lost to the Leafs 3-2 at the ACC.

The Senators appeared to tie it with 35 seconds left, with goaltender Brian Elliott on the bench for an extra attacker, but the goal by Jesse Winchester was waved off because it was kicked in.

As well, Ottawa's Anton Volchenkov scored in the first period but that goal was disallowed as the whistle had gone as a result of a hand pass.

A month or so ago, it was the Leafs who seemed to have all the calls going against them.

"I think it goes hand-in-hand with how hard you work. If you work hard, you get good bounces," said Toronto goaltender Vesa Toskala, when asked about Winchester's no-goal.
