Recap: Toronto vs. Ottawa

Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Ben Scrivens posted 34 stops for his first career shutout as the Toronto Maple Leafs took a 3-0 win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday.

Frazer McLaren, John-Michael Liles and Tyler Bozak each scored for the Maple Leafs, who have won five of their last six games.

"You're going to have tough games now and then, but we bounced back from the Carolina loss," said Bozak. "The guys are all real happy with the effort tonight and we're really happy to get Ben (Scrivens) that shutout."

Craig Anderson gave up two goals on 27 shots for the Senators, who have dropped their past two and four of five.

"I thought we had every chance to win the game and I'm really happy with the effort we put forth," said Ottawa head coach Paul MacLean. "We just didn't have any puck-luck and they did."

Ottawa played its first game since losing defenseman Erik Karlsson to a cut left Achilles tendon that he suffered in Wednesday's loss to Pittsburgh. The team is already without center Jason Spezza, who had surgery to repair a herniated disc on Jan. 27, and Karlsson, the reigning Norris Trophy winner, is expected to miss the next 3-to-4 months after having surgery to repair the cut.

Toronto struck just 3:14 into the game when Mark Fraser's shot from the left point deflected off of McLaren in front for his first goal of the season.

After a middle stanza which saw Scrivens turn away 19 shots and Anderson make 10 stops, the Maple Leafs scored at the 8:32 mark of the third as Dion Phaneuf sent a hard pass from the left circle to the slot where Bozak used his skate to re-direct it past Anderson for a 2-0 lead.

Liles capped the win with an empty-net goal, his first of the season, inside the final minute of play.
