The Senators scored four times goals during in the first 16:39 of Game One, but have netted just three tallies during the last 125 minutes and 16 seconds of the series.

Brodeur made 43 saves in Game Two after uncharacteristically allowing five goals on 26 shots in the opener. Jamie Langenbrunner scored the the game-winner at 1:55 of the second overtime.
