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

Senators were 'slapped in the face' by Rangers in Game 3

When the New York Rangers host the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference second-round playoff series at Madison Square Garden, two key questions will be answered.

Ottawa Senators captain Erik Karlsson, already playing through a foot injury, endured more pain in Game 4 that kept him out of most of the third period.

Jean-Gabriel Pageau, who had four goals in Ottawa's 6-5 double-overtime victory in Game 2, scored again for the Senators, and Craig Anderson finished with 26 saves. Glass blocked Ben Harpur's shot and Michael Grabner grabbed the loose puck and broke in with Lindberg, who scored on a one-timer at 2:01.

The home team has been the play all series, but I still feel like the Rangers are the better team.

Carl Hagelin gave the Penguins 1-0 lead in first period and Phil Kessel put them up 2-1 in the second.

Meanwhile, a woman says she was sexually assaulted in a bathroom during Game 4 of the Penguins-Capitals series in Pittsburgh. With Chris Wideman caught up ice, the Rangers had an odd-man rush and all Fast had to do was deposit it home at 4:07, beating Anderson on the stick side. He outworked Senators defenseman Cody Ceci for the puck behind the Ottawa net and sent it to the boards. "They came out and played their game to a T", Anderson said.

"I was just trying to get it deep", Zuccarello said. "It was a lucky play and a good job by him, reading it and stealing the puck there".

"We were just not there, period", Senators coach Guy Boucher said. "We came out, we wanted to work and match that, it just didn't get done, and they capitalized on a couple of opportunities and essentially that was the difference".

NY almost won the contest two minutes earlier as Michael Grabner knocked a pass from Kevin Hayes out of midair at 4:12 of overtime. The Senators had a 12-9 advantage on shots in the middle period but fell further behind on the scoreboard.

Ottawa Senators center Kyle Turris, top left, and Alex Burrows (14) celebrate after Turris scored the game-winning goal during overtime against the New York Rangers in Game 5 in the second round of the National Hockey League h.

"We have to start the same time as them, that's it", Boucher said. "It felt like we were in control for the most part and played a really smart game".

Things were a little more even in the second period, but when Rick Nash added a third goal at the 12:21 mark, a Rangers victory seemed inevitable.

Lindberg made it 4-0 with 1:43 left in the period. J.T. Miller grabbed the loose puck and passed to Lindberg at the point for a 3-0 lead at 15:54. That kind of upgrade to their forwards shouldn't be ignored, as it's had a huge impact on their ability to roll four lines.

Down 2-1 going into the final 20 minutes, Nicklas Backstrom evened the contest less than three minutes into the third.

Kyle Turris would ruin the shutout bid by Henrik Lundqvist, but this one was already over.

Asked if there was any concern about Karlsson missing Saturday's game, Boucher said, "Not for now".

"In the end we know that you need presence at the net", Boucher said. "They started better and that's why they won this game". "We've been here before and we have to have a big game".

St. Louis coach Mike Yeo is looking at making some changes to his lines and what the Blues can do differently in Game 4 after losing their first road game this postseason.
