OTTAWA (AP) – Dany Heatley scored the lone goal of the shootout winner to give the Ottawa Senators a 6-5 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday night.

Dominik Hasek stopped Kyle Wellwood, Eric Lindros and Jason Allison in the shootout and Ottawa (3-0-0) remained unbeaten.

Hasek stopped Lindros and Allison when the teams went to a shootout in the season-opener last Wednesday. That night, Daniel Alfredsson and Heatley beat Ed Belfour as the Senators won the shootout 2-0 and the game 3-2.

Ottawa’s Jason Spezza scored his second goal of the game at 9:27 of the third period to tie it 5-5. Chris Neil, Heatley and Alfredsson also scored for the Senators.

Tie Domi, Clark Wilm and Nik Antropov all scored in a 1:55 span in the third period to erase a 4-2 deficit and give the Maple Leafs (0-1-0-2) a one-goal lead with just over 12 minutes to play in the third period.

Bryan McCabe and Darcy Tucker added power-play goals for Toronto. Tomas Kaberle had three assists for Toronto and McCabe had two.

Heatley appeared to score the first goal against Toronto, but that goal was awarded to Neil between the first and second periods. Heatley then got his third of the season at 12:19 of the second to give the Senators a 3-2 lead.

Spezza scored earlier in the period to tie the game 2-2. McCabe scored on a two-man advantage, and one minute later Tucker scored to give Toronto a 2-1 lead.

With just over four minutes to play in the second period, Alfredsson made it 4-2 with the Senators enjoying a 5-on-3 advantage.
