Senators Vs. Rangers, NHL Playoffs 2012 Game 4: Senators Pull Even With Rangers Entering Third Period

Ottawa Senators forward Milan Michalek and defenseman Sergei Gonchar scored second-period goals to tie the New York Rangers at two goals apiece entering the third period of Game 4 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series, which the Rangers lead 2-1.

Michalek took the feed from Carkner and beat Henrik Lundqvist with a backhand shot over the goaltender's blocker shoulder.

With the Senators on the power play 10 minutes later, Spezza would go to the dressing room after taking a shot to the head from Staal, though no penalty was called on the play. Moments later, Gonchar's shot from the point squeezed through Lundqvist's left arm and trickled into the net for the game-tying goal with 2:10 to play in the period.

Rangers forward Anton Stralman opened the scoring just 49 seconds into the first period and 10 seconds into New York's first power play, when he beat Anderson with a wrist shot. Rangers captain Ryan Callahan also scored a power-play goal in the first period to open up a 2-0 lead.
