 HIGH FIVE:

 SPEZZA SITS AGAIN: Senators coach Jacques Martin continued to flex his muscle with sophomore C Jason Spezza, making him a healthy scratch for the third game in the series. Spezza missed the first two games in Toronto, but got his opportunity in Games 3, 4 and 5 and didn't produce. Spezza was replaced by LW Antoine Vermette in the lineup. D Curtis Leschyshyn came out in favour of D Anton Volchenkov.

 A DUMB PLAY: People have been waiting for LW Peter Bondra to score since he arrived from the Caps, but he made himself noticed in the first period last night. Bondra was given a double-minor for high-sticking Leafs' pest Darcy Tucker at 1:39.

 NO TROPHY ON THIS NIGHT: The Senators normally present the Molson Cup Trophy on a monthly basis, but they didn't go the route with backup G Martin Prusek. Late in the first, they showed him sitting on the bench and announced he was the winner for March-April.

 DUDLEY IN TOWN: Panthers GM Rick Dudley was in town for last night's Game 6. He has been travelling around watching games since the regular season ended.

 DOWN GOES FRASER: One of the loudest cheers of the night came when Senators C Bryan Smolinski accidentally sent referee Kerry Fraser tumbling to the ice in the second. Fraser doesn't wear a helmet, but he got up right away.

 Sun Rating: 4 1/2 out of 5
