The New York Rangers and the Ottawa Senators head back to Madison Square Garden for Game 5 on Saturday with the series tied at two games apiece.
The New York Rangers lost, 3-2, in overtime to the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night to tie the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series at two games apiece as the teams head back to Madison Square Garden for Game 5. The Rangers have gotten everything they can handle against the 8-seed. Of the four games played, only Game 1 was decided by more than one goal. The two teams have gone to overtime twice, leading to both Ottawa wins.
Heading into Saturday's game, this biggest question for the Rangers will be figuring out a power play that went stone cold after accounting for the team's first two goals in the first period. As for the Senators, if Craig Anderson can continue to play like he did in the third period of Game 4 (11 saves), they will have a good chance of knocking off the East's No. 1 seed.
