(Sports Network) - The Toronto Maple Leafs can match their longest winning streak of the season tonight, when they visit the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place.

The Maple Leafs have been victorious in three straight and are just one away from their first four-game winning streak since November 4-11.

Toronto's latest triumph came Wednesday night in New York City, as they edged the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Andrew Raycroft was brilliant in net as he made 37 saves to help the Leafs earn the 2-1 victory.

Mats Sundin scored the game-winning goal and Alexei Ponikarovsky scored the other goal for the Maple Leafs, who have also taken five of their last six games.

The Leafs have 56 points on the year and come into Saturday's action two points out of a playoff spot in the East.

Tonight's game is the third portion of a five-game road trip for Toronto, which is an impressive 14-9-3 as the visiting club this year.

The Senators are coming off a victory, as they downed visiting Washington on Tuesday. Dany Heatley and Jason Spezza each had a goal and an assist to help Ottawa earn the 3-2 decision.

Daniel Alfredsson scored the other goal and Martin Gerber made 35 saves for the Senators, who have won three of their last four games.

Ottawa has 62 points on the year and is tied with Montreal for fourth in the Eastern Conference standings.

The Senators have dominated the Maple Leafs in the season series, taking four of the five meetings so far. Ottawa has also taken 11 of the last 13 encounters with Toronto.
