Turris' OT goal gives Senators 3-2 series lead over Rangers

Monday, 15 May, 2017

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.

CBC spliced that Miller play with footage of Karlsson in pain, but it's also possible a collision with Rangers winger Chris Kreider ended his night early. "It comes down to execution, focus".

During the season, the Senators usually skate at home before boarding a flight for a road game. It then happened again in Game 2 of this series, when the Senators came back from three separate two-goal deficits to tie it on a Jean-Gabriel Pageau goal with just 62 seconds left.

Senators coach Guy Boucher pointed to New York's defensive structure as a reason for the Senators' lack of offence in Game 4.

"There is definitely an area as far as structure-wise that I thought we had addressed", Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said.

But once their backs are against the wall, they decide to play like the team they are capable of being. After Senators defensemen Erik Karlsson and Harpur collided near center ice, Derek Stepan brought the puck down the middle and passed it to Nash, who fired it past Anderson from the left circle.

On Tuesday, back at home, the Rangers to a man were consistently quick and forceful in Game 3, and decked the Senators, 4-1, to climb back into the best-of-seven series.

"We're not kidding ourselves", Boucher said.

Given the metrics of this series, the Rangers might feel gipped to be trailing 2-1.

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

Kyle Turris scored the Senators' lone goal as Ottawa dropped its second straight in the series, but that's a subplot to potentially three bigger issues. "I think that we set the tone right away".

Brassard jumped off the bench when Anderson exited for the extra attacker and got credit for a puck that bounced around the Rangers crease before eventually crossing the goal-line with 86 seconds left. The game was scoreless until Ellis notched a power-play goal with 14:51 remaining.

Lindberg then struck twice in the second period as the Rangers put a stranglehold on the game. This marked back-to-back games with goals for Lindberg. "For the most part we were real solid".

When the third period started, neither Anderson nor Karlsson was on the ice for Ottawa.

Miller had been on the ice for almost a full minute, in a shift on which the Rangers iced the puck twice, so his effort in shaking off Hoffman was even more impressive. "That's a good team over there with a lot of pride, so it's going to be a tough game, for sure, to follow up, and we have to make sure we come ready to play", Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh said after the team's practice on Wednesday.

Turris snapped a left-wing shot that beat Lundqvist short side with 6:26 to play for Ottawa's lone goal.

Rangers try to get even • The Rangers have been here before. The Rangers have won four consecutive home games this postseason. No matter the lineup, Boucher is aware his team must give a more complete effort than it did in Game 3.

By comparison, NY has eight skaters who have scored in the series.
