Daniel Alfredsson and Dany Heatley scored second-period goals, leading the Ottawa Senators to a 2-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday night.
Brian Elliott made 25 saves in his third straight start for Ottawa, which won all of those games.
Ian White scored in the first period for Toronto, which lost in regulation for the second straight game after earning at least a point in its eight previous games (6-0-2).
Maple Leafs veteran Curtis Joseph became the sixth goalie in league history to allow 2,500 goals on Alfredsson's score, an unassisted effort in the second period that tied it at 1.
He joined Gilles Meloche and Grant Fuhr, who are tied with an NHL record 2,756 goals allowed, John Vanbiesbrouck, Tony Esposito and Patrick Roy.
Alfredsson, who scored his 350th and 351st goals in Saturday's 6-3 win over Buffalo, drove a slap shot past Joseph from the top of the right faceoff circle for his 21st goal.
Heatley got his 31st with 47 seconds remaining in the second period. He deflected Anton Volchenkov's point shot past Joseph, starting over former Senators goalie Martin Gerber, who was claimed on waivers from Ottawa prior to Tuesday's trading deadline.
Toronto finished the game on the power play after Jason Spezza was sent off for using an illegal stick. Maple Leafs coach Ron Wilson asked referee Dan O'Halloran to measure the curve on Spezza's stick with 2:16 remaining.
White scored his ninth goal 4:48 into the match to give Toronto a 1-0 lead.
Notes: Actress/singer Hilary Duff was on hand at Scotiabank Place for the game. Duff, who is dating Ottawa C Mike Comrie, looked on from a suite. ... Maple Leafs D Phil Oreskovic made his NHL debut.
