 WHAT EACH TEAM NEEDS TO DO TO WIN TONIGHT

 THE LEAFS

 - Should take the road game they played on home ice in Game 5 and apply it at the Corel Centre. Chip the puck out, ice it, whatever, just bore the Senators into submission.

 - Fight fire with fire. They expect the Sens to come out hard. Why not beat them to it?

 - Wait for mistakes. As they showed on Friday, the Leafs have the ability to pounce.

 - Keep their noses clean. The NHL's best power play in the regular season -- Ottawa's -- has converted just three of 27 power plays.

 - Continue knocking at giant Zdeno Chara. He might not fall but it does have an adverse effect on him.

 THE SENATORS

 - Must decide once and for all if they can make heart a main ingredient in the playoffs against the Leafs. They have not yet done so.

 - Show they respect captain Daniel Alfredsson by going through the wall. What could be worse than leaving Alfredsson and his guarantees out to dry?

 - Have to score the first goal. In each of their three losses to Toronto, they have been shut out.

 - Get in Ed Belfour's face. He can still be rattled, but the Sens have not tested his mettle.

 DID YOU KNOW?

 Toronto coach Pat Quinn has 90 career NHL playoff wins heading into tonight. That ranks him fifth, behind Scotty Bowman (223), Al Arbour (123), Dick Irvin (100) and Mike Keenan (91). Irvin coached the Leafs to their first Stanley Cup in 1932.
