TORONTO -- Mason Raymond and Tyler Bozak scored shootout goals to give Toronto a 5-4 win over the Ottawa Senators in the Maple Leafs' home opener Saturday night.

Toronto goalie Jonathan Bernier, outstanding in relief of James Reimer, stopped Milan Michalek -- whose shot hit the crossbar and bounced out -- and Jason Spezza in the shootout.

Raymond, on an nifty turnaround backhand, and Bozak, through Craig Anderson's legs, scored to give Toronto a 2-0 edge in the shootout.

The Leafs (3-0-0) had a 42-second power play to finish overtime after Dave Bolland was hauled down by Jared Cowen as he charged at the Ottawa goal. But Toronto failed to take advantage.

Kyle Turris, Cory Conacher, Cowen and Spezza scored for the Senators (1-0-1), who got another big night in goal from Anderson.

Raymond, Nazem Kadri, Joffrey Lupul and James van Riemsdyk scored for Toronto, which combined a fluid offence with a leaky defence.

Trailing 4-3 entering a wide-open third period, Toronto tied it up after a speeding Phil Kessel found van Riemsdyk with a laser-like pass at the side of the crease at 2:52. The big winger tucked it in for his second of the season.

Both teams had chances to win late in regulation, with Toronto either unable to beat Anderson or find the target.

Toronto outshot Ottawa 42-36 through overtime.
