OTTAWA (Ticker) -- The regular-season "Battle of Ontario" concludes Saturday night at the Corel Centre as the Ottawa Senators face the rival Toronto Maple Leafs.

Ottawa has 102 points and is tied with Boston atop the Northeast Division. But the Senators have three more victories than the Bruins, who are facing New Jersey on Saturday afternoon.

Toronto is fifth in the Eastern Conference with 101 points. The Senators and Maple Leafs conclude the regular season Saturday, while the Bruins play Sunday at New Jersey.

Ottawa, which was the top seed in the East last season and lost in the conference final to New Jersey, is returning from a six-game road trip. The Senators were 4-1-1 on the trip and enter with a five-game unbeaten streak.

On Friday, Ottawa concluded the trek with a 3-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers. Defenseman Zdeno Chara had a goal and an assist and Martin Prusek made 39 saves.

Prusek was starting in place of starter Patrick Lalime, who suffered a knee injury in last Saturday's 2-2 tie at Toronto.

Toronto is 3-0-1 in its last four games after Friday's 2-0 win at Buffalo. Ed Belfour made 17 saves for his ninth shutout of the season and Chad Kilger scored his first goal for Toronto, which played in front of some 7,000 Maple Leafs' fans at HSBC Arena.

Toronto leads the series, 3-1-1. The Maple Leafs have won both visits to Ottawa this season after dropping seven of their previous eight trips here.
