Maple Leafs win third straight with shootout victory over Ottawa

By Larry Seely     Oct 5, 2013 in Sports
Toronto - The Toronto Maple Leafs have started the 2013-14 NHL season 3-0 after a thrilling 5-4 shootout victory over Ottawa on Saturday night.
The Leafs trailed 4-2 midway through the second period, but a goal by Joffrey Lupul with just 17 seconds left before intermission gave the leafs some momentum heading into the final period.
While the offense provided a big boost, it was goalie Jonathan Bernier that made the difference as the youngster took over in net for James Reimer in the second period and stopped all 15 shots he faced.
Mason Raymond was the offensive hero with a goal and two assists for the Maple Leafs. Lupul added an assist and now has four points over the first three games.
The Senators had just one power play on the night and failed to score. Ottawa is now 1-0-1 on the year, despite a goal and two assists from center Kyle Turris.
Toronto will look to win their fourth straight contest on Tuesday when they host Colorado. The Avalanche are a surprising 2-0-0 on the year and have scored nine goals this season, leaving them third in the NHL with 4.5 goals per game.
