Rangers top Senators 4-1, tie series 2-2

NEW YORK — Its up to you, New York.

Turris scored 6:28 into overtime to lift the Senators to 5-4 victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday for a 3-2 series lead in their second-round series.

Capitals 4, Penguins 2: Evgeny Kuznetsov and Alex Ovechkin scored 27 seconds apart in the third period as Washington avoided elimination by beating Pittsburgh in Game 5.

The biggest early buzz at Canadian Tire Centre came when Chris Neil stepped onto the ice for the first time this postseason, hoping to give the Senators a lift after they dropped the previous two games at NY. The Ottawa Senators will bounce back. Ottawa needs a strong start. "A bounce, whatever. We have to find a way to get guys to get it done". "We're still there. We never let anybody tell us from the outside the way we should feel". On his second breakaway of the game - he was denied only 82 seconds in by Anderson's blocker - Grabner opted against shooting and instead dropped a pass to Lindberg, who was also ahead of the Senators defense, for an easy finish. Give them credit, they block a lot of shots. "We just take the time as it and refocus here, get rejuvenated, look at some things we can do better. I was just coming from the bench with some speed, I just went in the slot there and I just batted it out of the air and I got lucky". Ottawa's done, they have no chance, the series is over.

“Were not kidding ourselves.

"There is a lot of experience, and they have to use this experience right", Vigneault said, referring to his veteran players.

"We've got to win a hockey game at home and that's all we focus on". I think that team will be the Sens. "Because we're capable of scoring and we have to do a better job of it". Definitely we can't be like we were the last two times there to even think of getting the result we want. We know how hard it will be to win there.”. Kyle Turris scored six minutes into the overtime period, giving Ottawa the series lead.

The New York Rangers have outscored Ottawa 8-2 in the last 120 minutes, both games New York held complete control of the game. This has pretty much been the scene since the series shifted to NY, and with this game 3-0 after two, the Senators threw in the towel. NY has got to the star defenseman. Defensively, the Ottawa Senators are allowing 2.6 goals per game and are killing 79.7 percent of their opponents power plays. But you have to wonder just how much he's hurting?

I can deal with the Sens losing because they didn't show up or because all their best players were injured.

Since personnel changes on defense are extremely unlikely, Vigneault is simply going to have to shelter the Staal- Holden pairing again.

"Sometimes you've got to tip your hat".

And just like that, the Senators were off to overtime.

Chants of "Andy!" followed a little while later when Anderson shut down Chris Kreider's chance from in tight. The club will be on the ice Monday morning at MSG and the approach isnt going to be anything out of the ordinary.

"We'll see how we start on Tuesday", Boucher said. He missed two straight games after the initial injury and the Senators didn't look good without him at all.

While the Sens had once again found themselves in a hole, fans were at least somewhat lifted by the fact the team seemed to be playing more cohesively at home than they were in NY.

"Everything was positive", Brassard said. But there was less than two minutes, they're down by a goal, so [they] should expect it. But if Ottawa can get its act together on Broadway, the dream is a big step closer to reality.
