Vermette fastest, most accurate

The Senators were in a great mood. And why not? They were just one day removed from laying a 6-1 spanking on the Montreal Canadiens.

The Senators' big trio of Dany Heatley, Jason Spezza and captain Daniel Alfredsson were largely responsible for the one-sided score, with Spezza scoring three goals.

But yesterday, it wasn't about the goals or the wins.

The big winners from yesterday's annual skills competition will be the thousands of kids who benefit from donations to Easter Seals and Roger's House.

The net proceeds from yesterday's event -- which drew a crowd of 18,471 to Scotiabank Place -- will be donated through the Senators Foundation and the NHLPA's Goals and Dreams Fund. The event raised $125,000 to be evenly split between the Easter Seals and Roger's House.

The crowd was treated to the two teams -- Wade Redden's victorious White team was taking on the Red team led by captain Daniel Alfredsson -- participating in six competitions, helped by minor hockey players who had won the right to compete with the Senators.

Antoine Vermette blazed through in 13.821 seconds to win the fastest skater and he also won as the most accurate shooter. Mike Fisher blasted a 105 mph blast to win the hardest shot.
