Rangers regroup after tough loss, confident for Game 3

Frederick Owens | 07 May, 2017, 13:28

Pageau, who has a flare for the dramatic, became the first player in Ottawa playoff history to score four goals - including the victor in double overtime - to give the Senators a 6-5 victory over the Rangers to pull to a 2-0 series lead in front of 18,679 at the Canadian Tire Centre.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Phil Kessel scored twice, Sidney Crosby set up more goals and the Pittsburgh Penguins chased Braden Holtby on the way to a victory over the Washington Capitals in Game 2 that gave them a commanding 2-0 lead in their second-round series.

“The guys are still feeling good about our team, feeling good about our game, ” forward J.T. Miller said Monday at the teams practice facility. The last time the franchise completed the feat was the 2007 Eastern final against the Buffalo Sabres, and the Senators have never swept a series 4-0 in franchise history.

"He was fantastic", center Derek Stepan said.

"Playoffs is a new day, new situation and we're going in with the same mindset we had in Boston and the same mindset that's we've got at home", he said. "We know we got away with one".

"We scored one goal tonight", said Yeo in his postgame press conference, per Yahoo Sports' Jen Neale, "[The] fact of the matter is, for a large part of the game we weren't even competitive". "That's why they're up 2-0", Vigneault said. Nobody's gonna be ideal out there; we're gonna make mistakes.

New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist makes a save on Ottawa Senators right wing Mark Stone (61) during the first period of Game 1 of an NHL hockey second-round playoff series, Thursday, April 27, 2017, i. "Whatever we feel is best for the group is what we're going to do". "There's a lot of things we have to continue doing and hopefully we find a way here to get the first one at home and then take it from there". "We had four guys up in the rush, and either we turn it over or miss a shot and they came back on us quick".

Juventus salvage draw with Torino at home; Napoli go second with win
But Argentine striker Higuain smashed in a low finish on 91 minutes to preserve their unbeaten home record. Juve are now eight points clear of Napoli and nine clear AS Roma with three games remaining in the season.


Pageau scored his second and third goals in the final 3:19 of regulation time.

"When you ask players who they want to play with the No. 1 name that always comes is Pageau", Boucher said of Pageau, who wears the No. 44 and won 54.8 per cent of his faceoffs during the regular season.

Three times in the first period, the Senators had a power play, all three times they did nothing and they gave up a shorthanded effort to boot.

The Rangers will attempt to stop the bleeding tonight, as they head home to Madison Square Garden, an arena that hasn't been particularly great to them over the course of the season. They had some redirects in the last couple of minutes last game.

Both the New York Rangers and Ottawa Senators are happy to have an extra day off between games, but for different reasons. Yet, it is the Ottawa Senators who escaped with two consecutive one-goal wins. It is OK for you not to score with the man advantage on some nights, because it just isn't clicking, but when your power play is minus-2 on the night you aren't going to win very often. Maybe it was OK to think the Capitals, loaded with talent and built to unseat the reigning title winners, would finally do damage against the Pens, but then Pittsburgh unleashed an off-the-charts Game 1 encore on Saturday. "I thought in the last game we had the puck quite a bit". "It happens. I don't think we were nervous".

This is the first-ever postseason series between the Central Division rivals. The Predators want to tap into that home crowd energy once more before heading back to St. Louis for Game 5.

“Everyone knows its a huge game (Tuesday) for sure and going up 3-1 is. obviously a lot better than 2-2, ” Nashville defenseman Mattias Ekholm said.
