AGE: 39 HT: 6-foot-4 WT: 209 lbs.

2005-06 STATS: 1,713 Mins 14-10-0 W-L-OT 2.80 GAA

THE SKINNY: Was signed as an unrestricted free agent by the Bolts in the off-season ... Was used mostly in a relief role or as a backup during the regular season behind John Grahame ... The Bolts are Burke's eighth NHL team ... Was a backup for the Flyers in the 2003-04 playoffs. He made only one appearance behind Robert Esche and allowed one goal on nine shots in 40 minutes ... Has a lifetime 15-9-2 record against the Senators with a 2.84 GAA.

NOTEWORTHY

This is the fourth time in their history the Senators have led in a series 3-1. The club has a 2-1 record in those games. In 2003, they knocked off the Isles with a 4-1 win in Game 5. In 2002, Martin Havlat scored the OT winner in Game 5 to send the Flyers packing with a 2-1 victory. During the 1998 playoffs, the Senators had a 3-1 lead on New Jersey, but didn't close it out until a Game 6 victory ... Ottawa coach Bryan Murray gave the players yesterday off because the Senators didn't arrive back from Tampa until 2 a.m.

BLACK AND BLUE REPORT

LIGHTNING: None.

SENATORS: G Dominik Hasek (adductor), out indefinitely; D Chris Phillips (lower body), day-to-day.
