You may be thinking of the scenario in which two speakers are connected "in parallel" to the same amplifier channel, in which case their combined nominal impedance would indeed be 3 ohms. Fortunately, you are just over-thinking things.
If your integrated amp has two separate channels for stereo left & right, as I believe it does, then all you need to do is connect one speaker to each channel, and you should be perfectly fine (6 ohms for each channel).
By the way, speakers tend to vary in impedance depending on the sounds they're reproducing anyway, so in basic terms everything doesn't have to be SO precise. As for power ratings, the speakers' ratings are how much power they can take (supposedly), while the amp's rating is how much it can supply (again, supposedly, and usually per channel). In practice, the amp will provide only as much power as you need at any given moment, which for most people is not very much on the average, like maybe 1-10 watts most of the time (with a higher power rating still being important for dynamics and certain really loud sounds). The speakers and amp do not have to be matched in this regard, either--those are merely their independent, respective limits.
