Zuccarello leads Rangers to 4-1 win over Senators in Game 3

Holden came in hard on Anderson, dropping the puck back to his forehand and flipping the puck into the net past Anderson's blocker for a 1-0 NY lead.

The New York Rangers got on the board in commanding fashion Tuesday night with a 4-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators at Madison Square Garden.

After trailing the series 2-0 returning to the city that never sleeps, the Rangers have woken up and tied it 2-2.

Game 5: Predators at Blues, 8 p.m. ET, NBCSN (Predators lead series 3-1) - Nashville is one win from its first Western Conference finals in franchise history.

"I think if you told us we were going to take care of home ice and then come here with a 2-0 lead, we're frustrated with the fact that we didn't build on that", said Senators forward Bobby Ryan.

That's why Cole, who's second in blocks in the playoffs behind Edmonton's Kris Russell, is such a valuable piece of the Penguins' defense: He's good at something he doesn't necessarily want to do every shift. We've had one game go Over the total, one game stay Under and one game result in a push in the first three games of this series, but I would expect goals to be hard to come by for the rest of this series.

He first suffered the injury when he blocked a shot March 28 in Philadelphia and has been playing with the ailment since.

Sens coach Guy Boucher decided to make a statement to his team, though, by inserting Mike Condon in goal for the third period.

Kyle Turris scored for Ottawa, and Craig Anderson made 17 saves before being replaced by Mike Condon for the third period.

He had to sit out in 2015 but quickly established himself as a potential starter while on the scout team. The Pewaukee, WI native came to Wisconsin as a tight end before switching to defensive end a year later.

"We felt it was better for him to keep him off the ice in the (third) period", Boucher said of Karlsson.

"It nearly feels like a different season when you play the playoffs", he said. We played with speed, emotion and determination.

"We definitely have to be ourselves". Refusing to call anyone out specifically, he said, "it was a general loss for the entire team" and that there was nothing positive for the Sens to take from the game.

What happened was a lot of the same, really.

Lindberg's second of the night was a floater from the top of the circle that Anderson completely missed.

Tanner Glass assisted on both of Lindberg's goals to give the Rangers their commanding 3-0 advantage, and he unleashed some physicality in the final minute with the game already in hand. Much like in Game 3, the Rangers completely carved up the Senators 1-3-1 trap, and made easy work of them in the offensive zone. Mika Zibanejad brought the puck up the right side, came around the back of the Ottawa net while fighting off a defender and sent a pass in front to Zuccarello, who fired it past Anderson. Will the Rangers be able to replicate their dominating 60-minute effort from Game 3 and even this best-of-seven at two games apiece?

The Senators still received offense from their shining superstar: Jean-Gabriel Pageau, who scored his sixth goal of the playoffs on Tuesday night after a four-goal performance on Saturday night.

The New York Rangers had one mission going into yesterday's game; push the pace.

"They are a good hockey team". Pageau has easily been the Senators best forward this series. Lindberg has four points (3 G, 1 A) in 10 playoff games, but has team-leading 58.5 CF% too. It should be very interesting to see which coach can get the most out of their team using such different tactics.
