STICK OR TREAT: It appears Wade Redden is giving some consideration to going out for Halloween as a certain Maple Leafs defenceman. Last night he applied a perfect Bryan McCabe-ian can-opener to Simon Gagne to earn a second-period penalty.
BEST HITS: Zdeno Chara got the last word in on regular meetings he had with Donald Brashear, flattening the Flyers tough guy with a hit just inside the Ottawa blue line. Later in the third, Peter Schaefer decked Eric Desjardins behind the Philly net when the defenceman tried to push him from behind into the glass.
SAVING THE DAY: Robert Esche's finest moments included a first-period glove save off Daniel Alfredsson and sprawling to take an open net away from Vaclav Varada with three minutes left in the third.
