Anton Forsberg makes 46 saves, Senators beat Maple Leafs 3-2


Anton Forsberg had a career-high 46 saves and the Ottawa Senators scored three times in the first period in a 3-2 season opener over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night.

Playing hours after the Senators signed Brady Tkachuk for a seven-year contract extension, Tyler Ennis scored a goal and an assist and Chris Tierney and Alex Formenton also scored. Forsberg started the goal with Matt Murray battling a cold.

Tierney opened the scoring on a deflection at 8:31, Ennis took a power-play shot with 1:02 remaining and Formenton scored from a slapshot with 0.6 seconds left in the opening period.


Toronto goaltender Peter Mrazek left the game after sustaining a groin injury on the last play of the second period. He made 23 saves and Jack Campbell – the winner Wednesday night at home against Montreal – stopped 10 shots in the third.

Former Ottawa captain Jason Spezza and William Nylander scored power-play goals for Toronto. Spezza made it 3-1 early in the third with a power play goal, and Nylander had 11:10 left.

The teams will meet again on Saturday night in Toronto.
