Ottawa then eliminated Smith's Fails, champions of the Federal League in two straight games, but lost no time in picking up the Falls' outstanding goalie, Percy LeSueur, before their series with the Wanderers. LeSueur did not play in the first game in which the Wanderers, paced by Lester Patrick, Pud Glass and Ernie Russell, upset the Silver Seven 9-1.
