The Senators erased a 2-0 Leaf lead to bury the Buds in Halifax. Jeff O'Neil and Pope John Pohl scored for T.O. in the first period, where the Leafs outshot the Sens 19-6! But then Leafs got into penalty trouble in the third period and the Senators took advantage with goals from Jason Spezza and Dany Heatley. The Leafs did not have many regulars in the lineup. The defence was all up and comers, and the only regular forwards in the lineup were O'Neil, Alex Steen, Alexei Ponikarovsky, and Matt Stajan. So a good showing by the Leafs prospects nevertheless. J.S. Aubin was in net for the Leaf's loss.
