NY nearly snared the game-winner four minutes into the extra period, but Michael Grabner's goal was disallowed due to a high stick. Officials quickly negated the tally on the basis of a high stick. The Blueshirts realize they're in Ottawa's head, from the drop of the puck the Rangers need to continue to pressure the puck, score quick goals and never let off the pedal. Craig Anderson made 29 saves to secure the Sens' fifth OT win of the playoffs. However, the replay showed that Anderson's glove was just on the other side of the goal line when he caught the puck.
With 1:28 left on the clock, ex-Ranger Derick Brassard jumped off the Sens' bench, made his way down to the NY net, and ended up getting the credit for a goal that felt more like something out of a game of pinball than ice hockey.
The former Rangers centre batted Clarke MacArthur's rebound attempt off a number in bodies in front before it finally beat Lundqvist to tie the game at four.
Mark Stone, Tom Pyatt and Mike Hoffman scored for the Senators.
Meanwhile, Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist has had it relatively easy in back-to-back wins, stopping 48 of 50 shots.
After being outscored 2-1 in the first period, the Senators outscored the Rangers 2-1 in the second. Erik Karlsson had three assists. It was the third of the playoffs for Hoffman. "I think we were able to make some plays the first two games, but they've really limited our offensive ability by taking away our time and space". It was Pyatt's first of the playoffs.
After winning Round 1 against the Boston Bruins, Karlsson revealed he had been playing with two hairline fractures in his foot - an injury he suffered blocking a shot on March 28 against Philadelphia. It was the second of the postseason for the Rangers captain.

The Rangers scored at least four goals in four or more consecutive playoff games for the first time since 1994, when they did it in six straight beginning with the first round against the Islanders. "From doing that, I think we've been able to get some more pucks back and spend a longer time in their zone". Crosby had an assist and Carl Hagelin and Phil Kessel scored for the Penguins, who lead the second-round series 3-2 with Game 6 back in Pittsburgh on Monday night. Vesey had the only helper.
The aforementioned star was Alex Ovechkin, who had been held without a goal since Game 1 of the series. Even-strength shot attempts, tellingly, were 31-30 through two periods - just favouring NY.
The question now: Can he help the Senators save their season?
The Rangers and Senators will both practice in NY on Monday, and play Game 6 at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night.
That incident was preceded by a run-in with Chris Kreider, who tripped Karlsson while sliding earlier in the period and Karlsson landed hard on his backside.
Not that they didn't have that energy to start the game Saturday as they jumped out to a 2-0 lead five minutes in on just four shots. In the defensive zone, it's meant to push the puck to the boards and force lower-percentage shots, and protect the slot at all costs. And it's not just Lundqvist - New York's top five players in career postseason gamesare all on the current roster: Lundqvist, Dan Girardi (120), Marc Staal (102), Derek Stepan (95) and Ryan McDonagh (94).
I was following along during overtime and the subsequent review for offside, one that was upheld correctly as Turris was in control of the puck when he crossed the Rangers blue line despite being in before the puck, and did get to see that highlight.

Ahkello Witherspoon out of Colorado. "Guys who can do multiple things", he said with a sly smile, echoing Harris' pick. This feels like one of those rumors floated out there by the team to try and drive up interest in its pick.
With that group on the floor, the Cavaliers shot 62 percent from the floor and outscored the Pacers 35-23 in the fourth quarter. He hit 1 of 2 free throws to seal the game and finished with 33 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 steals and 2 blocks.
The 28-year-old Darling had a career-best 18 wins and a 2.38 goals-against average in 32 games for the Hawks this season. I thought they sort of took it to us in that aspect (in Game 3) and forced turnovers and forced mistakes.
