Senators Vs. Rangers, NHL Playoffs 2012 Game 6: NY Forces Game 7 With 3-2 Win

The Ottawa Senators made a third-period charge, and they even scored a controversial goal in the final minute to cut the New York Rangers' lead to 3-2. But in the end they couldn't complete the comeback, and the top-seeded Blueshirts forced a Game 7 with the victory by that same score. Chris Kreider's second-period goal, his first in the NHL, turned out to be the game-winner.

Poor officiating turned into the story of Game 6, with weak calls from officials Tim Peel and Steve Kozari going both ways. One of them, a weak goalie interference call against Ottawa's Nick Foligno in the second period, turned into a Rangers power play goal and gave New York full control of the game.

Ottawa certainly sat back with a 1-0 lead in the middle period, however. The Sens seemed to be lulling the Rangers to sleep and the Rangers deserve full marks for taking advantage. Henrik Lundqvist played his part in shutting down Ottawa in the third period, making 13 saves in the final 20 minutes to add to his game total of 25.
