2001 Playoffs

Ottawa vs. Toronto

Curtis Joseph made 37 saves for his second shutout in less than 24 hours, and Gary Roberts scored twice as the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Ottawa Senators 3-0 to take a 2-0 lead in the first-round series.

"We haven't won anything yet," said Joseph, "Momentum is on our side now and we want to keep it going as long as we can. It's a good start, for sure. You've got to feel good about yourself right now. But we're still a long way from closing out the series."

The Senators, who lost to the Maple Leafs in six games in the first round last year, have dig themselves in a hole as the series moves to Toronto for Games 3 and 4.

"I don't know if we're shocked, but it's a check of our character," Senators coach Jacques Martin said. "You have to believe in yourself and keep things simple. We just have to keep competing hard."
