THE SKINNY: Leading scorer among rookies in the playoffs with seven points ... One of his two goals was a game winner ... Hard to believe a guy as big and aggressive as Penner has only two penalty minutes in the playoffs ... Native of Winkler, Man., is averaging 14:05 a game playing on a line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry ... After a red-shirt season, he played one year with the Maine Black Bears before signing with the Ducks as a free agent ... Had 29 goals in his first full NHL season this year and led all rookies in road goals with 19 ... Played in a celebrity poker tournament with other NHLers last summer, but lost in the early going. "That game's not all about brains," he explained.

If Senators F Dean McAmmond (head injury) is unable to play in Game 4 tonight, F Patrick Eaves is expected to take his place in the lineup ... The Senators' power play was 1-for-7 in Game 3, making it 3-for-18 in the series ... The Ducks got their first power-play goal of the series in Game 3, going 1-for-3, and are now 1-for-11 in the series ... Ottawa outhit the Ducks 32-26 in Game 3 with C Mike Fisher and LW Chris Neil leading the way with five apiece ... Senators D Anton Volchenkov had a goal and an assist in Game 3 and had five shots on goal. He had just 12 shots on goal in his previous 17 playoff games ... Neil's goal Saturday night was his first since the first game of the playoffs against Pittsburgh ... The Ducks had another good night in the faceoff circle Saturday, winning 60% of the draws. Ducks C Andy McDonald was tops, going 10-1 ... The Senators outshot the Ducks for the first time in the Stanley Cup final in Game 3, 29-22. The Ducks still have the edge in the series, 85-65.
