Kadri's hat trick sends Leafs past Senators 4-0

OTTAWA (AP) -- Nazem Kadri and the Toronto Maple Leafs felt at
home in Ottawa.

Kadri scored three times and had an assist while James Reimer
made 31 saves for his second shutout of the season and the
Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Senators 4-0.

The 22-year-old from London, Ontario, scored on a one-timer
against Ottawa's Ben Bishop at 4:48 of the third period to
complete his hat trick. Resumption of play was delayed as hats
littered the ice and chants of "KA-DRI" broke out.

"Leafs Nation is everywhere," Kadri said. "We obviously
appreciate the support and want to give back as much as we can.
To see everyone, especially at the start of the game with that
`Go Leafs Go' chant, and to hear it throughout the whole
building, it kind of got everyone going. We took advantage of

Joffrey Lupul scored and added three assists for the Leafs, who
have won three in a row and continued an eight-game point

Bishop made 19 saves for the Senators, who were coming off a 3-0
shutout over the New York Rangers on Thursday.

"We thought it was going to be a lot closer," Senators forward
Zack Smith said. "We're used to playing tight games.

"It was 4-0 but I don't think it was a 4-0 game. We had a lot of
chances, just maybe not the quality third and fourth chances
that we're used to scoring on."

The Leafs led 1-0 after the first period and 2-0 after the

"I think we had a great start, and that's one of the things
we've been focusing on. Any time you can get a decent start on
the road, it puts more pressure on the home team to perform,"
Toronto coach Randy Carlyle said.

The first of Kadri's goals came at 12:45 of the second after a
giveaway as Senators forward Jakob Silfverberg tried to clear
the puck, but instead gave it right to Lupul leading to a 2-on-0
break in front of Bishop. Lupul fed a pass to Kadri at the side
of the goal and he put the puck into a wide-open net.

Lupul took advantage of another Senators' giveaway to set up
Kadri again for the game's final goal.

The Senators appeared to score in the third period as Erik
Condra tucked a loose puck in from beside the post, but the
referee had blown the play dead.

Senators coach Paul MacLean said whether it was in or not was
irrelevant as they didn't score any others. When asked what went
wrong for his team, MacLean said giveaways would be a good place
to start.

"Two of them right in front of your net in the third period
makes it kind of hard for your goaltender to save you," MacLean
said. "That little bug-a-boo that we've had in the past about
execution in came back to bite us.

"I don't know if Toronto had better puck luck than we did, but
at the end of the day they ended up playing better than we did
and they win."

The second period produced just one goal, by Kadri on a delayed
penalty call. There were also just four minutes in penalties,
two delay of game calls against the Leafs, which was a stark
contrast to the first period.

The opening 20 minutes also produced a single goal, a power-play
effort from Lupul, but there were 40 minutes in penalties,
including six fighting majors.

Ottawa's Matt Kassian was the busiest player in the opening
period as he took on both Colton Orr and Frazer McLaren in

"They put the puck in the net and we didn't. Reimer made some
good saves and they got a couple bounces that helped them out
too, but we just weren't good enough from the drop of the puck
and they wanted it more," Kassian said.

"I don't think we got pushed around or got dominated physically.
We just got outworked, outskilled and outplayed. That's the
bottom line."

The Leafs also held an 11-5 edge in shots over the opening 20
minutes, but the Senators turned the table in that department
during the second period as they outshot the Leafs 12-6 in the

Ottawa held a 31-23 advantage in shots overall.

Notes: Clarke MacArthur and Jake Gardiner were scratches for
Toronto. Mike Lundin and Peter Regin were the Sens' healthy
scratches for the second straight game. ... Going into Saturday,
the Leafs led the NHL in hits with 1,143, blocked shots with 590
and fighting majors 34, a number they increased by three in the
first period. ... The Senators remain just one of four teams
(New York Islanders, Los Angeles Kings, Minnesota Wild) that
have yet to allow a short-handed goal this season. ... The loss
was just the third in regulation on home ice for the Senators in
19 games this season.
