The Maple Leafs go for their third straight win overall and second in as many home games against the Senators this season Wednesday night.
Toronto (14-9-0) has won three of four, scoring 13 goals in the victories, and is 10-4-0 in its past 14. The Maple Leafs moved to 4-1-0 in their last five home games with a 4-2 victory over New Jersey on Monday.
