NHL: Anton Forceberg disappoints maple leaves;  The senators won their opener 3-2

Ottawa senators scored three goals in the first period, Anton Forceberg made 46 saves, and the Ottawa senators beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2 in their regular schedule on Thursday night.

Tyler Ennis had one goal and one assist in the win. For their part, the leaves moved the strings twice in the last third, courtesy of Jason Spezza and William Nylander, but it was too late.

“Both goals were fantastic. In the end, Forceburg made a difference for us tonight, head coach DJ Smith agreed. He looked confident among the posts. The goals they achieved were of a very high quality. I must say that there is. “

Today is the perfect way for Sense to get home to Brady Tkachuk, who signed a new contract seven years ago.

“It’s like welcoming the big brother coming to our house,” Smith said. He takes care of the guys in that locker room, and no matter who the opponent is, you can be sure the other team knows he’s there. He continues to increase his strength with each sea and does not take vacations in the evening. “

Toronto opener Peter Mrojek, who is making his debut for the team, was forced out of the game after injuring his groin. Jack Campbell took charge on Wednesday night with an automatic victory over the Montreal Canadians.

Mrejek, 29, joined Leaf in the off-season as part of a three-year deal. He scored three goals in 32 shots when he retired to the locker room.
