OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) Craig Anderson made 29 saves for his fourth shutout of the season and the Ottawa Senators beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-0 on Saturday night to sweep the season series.

It's just the second time Ottawa has swept the Battle of Ontario when the teams have played at least three times, Elias told the NHL. The other came in 2000-01, when the Senators went 5-0-0 against Toronto.

Mika Zibanejad, Cody Ceci, Zack Smith and Mark Stone scored for the Senators. Jean-Gabriel Pageau added three assists.

Garret Sparks, making his third straight start for the Leafs, stopped 13 shots. Sparks used to work for Anderson at his goaltending school in Chicago.

Ottawa snapped a three-game losing streak and saved face after an ugly 6-2 loss to the Florida Panthers on Thursday night.
