OTTAWA (Ticker) -- For the second time in six days, the Toronto Maple Leafs will try to solve Dominik Hasek when they take on the Ottawa Senators on Monday in the Maple Leafs' road-opener.

Toronto suffered a difficult 3-2 setback at the hands of Hasek and the Senators at the Air Canada Centre on Wednesday.

The Maple Leafs grabbed a late 2-1 lead but Ottawa's Daniel Alfredsson forced overtime with a goal with 62 seconds left. After a scoreless extra session, Hasek stepped up in the NHL's first-ever shootout.

The 40-year-old goaltender stopped shootout attempts by Toronto newcomers Jason Allison and Eric Lindros. Alfredsson beat Ed Belfour on the Senators' first attempt and new acquisition Dany Heatley clinched Ottawa's win by converting his try.

The win was made more difficult for the Maple Leafs when they lost captain Mats Sundin, who will miss up to six weeks after suffering a fractured left orbital bone when a puck hit over his left eye.

Toronto was unable to recover in its next outing, dropping a 5-4 decision to Montreal, again coughing up a late lead. After Nik Antropov gave the Maple Leafs a 4-3 lead midway through the third, Steve Begin and Mike Ribeiro scored for the Canadiens to seal it.

Hasek was able to build off his shootout win by recording his 64th career shutout in a 5-0 win over Buffalo on Saturday. The six-time Vezina Trophy winner stopped 35 shots, including 19 in the first period.

Heatley provided the scoring punch with a pair of power-play goals and Martin Havlat notched a shorthanded goal on a breakaway.

Hasek is 16-5-5 with a 1.94 goals-against average all-time vs. Toronto.
