Vesa Toskala made 31 saves for his third shutout and Darcy Tucker scored two power-play goals to lead the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 5-0 win over the Senators last night in Ottawa.

After exercising his no-trade clause to veto any potential deal away from Toronto with today's 3 p.m. deadline looming, Mats Sundin scored on the power play in the first period. The Maple Leafs converted each of their first three opportunities with the man advantage.

Pavel Kubina and Dominic Moore scored even-strength goals in the second as the Maple Leafs beat Ray Emery four times in the middle period to seal Toronto's third straight win against its provincial rival.

Maple Leafs defenseman Tomas Kaberle stopped Mike Fisher's shot at a wide-open net with 1:02 remaining to preserve Toskala's 11th career shutout.

Toronto has won four of five.

Emery stopped 16 of 21 shots in the first two periods for Ottawa, which blew an opportunity to regain the Eastern Conference lead.

Martin Gerber replaced Emery after the second session and stopped all six shots.

Flyers 4, Sabres 3 - Daniel Briere scored the clinching shootout goal in helping visiting Philadelphia snap a 10-game losing streak.
