Senators Win 3-2 (SO) Over Rangers

Just when you thought the Senators couldn’t have anymore bad luck, fate proves you wrong once again.

Ottawa looked as though they were going to ride this one out to a 1-0 final.  They were thoroughly dominating the Rangers, playing terrific defensively and Craig Anderson was showing everyone his impression of a stone wall.  Jakob Silfverberg’s shorthanded beauty looked as though it was going to stand up as the game-winner, and what a game-winner it would have been.

However, at 1:43 of the third period, everything changed.  Chris Kreider stepped on Marc Methot’s stick and slid right into Craig Anderson, bending his leg around the post.  Anderson hobbled to the dressing room and was later diagnosed with a right ankle sprain (day-to-day).  Good news considering what the Senators have been through over the past couple of weeks, but still, another injury to play around.

Ben Bishop came in and things went south.  First, Ryan Callahan scored on the power-play to tie the game. Then, under a minute later, Ryan McDonough’s point shot found its way through a screen and just like that, the Rangers had the lead.

But this Senator team shook off the disappointment and tied the game on a power-play of their own with a Mika Zibanejad marker.  Overtime solved nothing, and neither did the original six competitors of the shootout.

It came down to a Kaspars Daugavins failed deke that snuck under Henrik Lundqvist, handing Ottawa their 3rd straight win.

Coach MacLean, Marc Methot & Daniel Alfredsson reflect on yet another teammate/player going down with an injury.
