After Falling Behind 2-0, Rangers Even Playoff Series with Senators and 2-2
After the first two games of their Stanley Cup second round playoff series, it looked like the Ottawa Senators had the New York Rangers on the ropes. Ottawa won both games at home, winning the second game in double overtime, a nice confidence booster before going on the road for Games 3 and 4.
But the Rangers picked themselves off the deck and won Game 3 at Madison Square Garden 4-1; they proceeded to again shut down the Senators’ offense in Game 4 with another 4-1 victory. Goalie Henrik Lundqvist had 26 saves in Game 3 and 22 in Game 4 for New York. Oscar Lindberg had a pair of goals for the Rangers in Game 4.
So now the Rangers have the momentum heading back to Ottawa for Game 5. They will have to win at least one game in Ottawa if they want to advance. The Rangers lost their only regular season game in Ottawa 3-1 on April 8th. They split two regular season games in New York. Game 5 is May 6th.
