Ken Warren: Overtime magic and other intriguing Senators numbers

NY is now 54-30-8 overall and 29-13-4 on the road.

Even though the series is tied, the New York Rangers clearly have seized the momentum in their Eastern Conference semifinal matchup entering Saturday afternoon's Game 5 at the Ottawa Senators.

"Overall, I thought we came out the right way, and we ended it the right way", said Senators captain Erik Karlsson, who left Game 4 after two periods with a foot injury and bounced back to record three assists and a plus-3 rating in 31:09 of ice time on Saturday. Nick Holden's second tally in consecutive contests made the score 2-0 and quieted the erstwhile enthused Senators fans.

But before then, take a look at what some of the other media outlets are saying about the Rangers' big 4-1 triumph over the Senators on Thursday.

The Sens were completely outshot, outplayed and outworked, which has to change quickly. "We just take the time as it and refocus here, get rejuvenated, look at some things we can do better". Weve got to be better than we were there, ” Boucher told reporters in Ottawa before the clubs departure Sunday.

Seventh Un-Heaven: Should the Senators lose Tuesday and come back to Canadian Tire Centre for Game 7 Thursday, they'll be battling some tough franchise history. Those freebies at the beginning of the game definitely lift them up and give them confidence in front of their crowd — thats very loud and very intimidating. He pointed to his Game 5 goal as a measure of continued learning that "scoring in the playoffs is tough".

Karlsson's diaphaneity as the series has progressed is surely a big reason for the Senators' defensive struggles, but not the only one.

“Were not kidding ourselves. "It's not going to always go your way", Pyatt said.

The 27-year-old played a stellar game.

"It's good for us to get a couple slaps in the face here, wake us up", said Senators center Derick Brassard, who is pointless in the series.

Immigrants plan May Day rallies buoyed by Trump opposition
Not since a May Day march in 2006 protested an anti-immigrant bill have all the May 1 marches ended in one place, Cabrera said . But it takes time for many of those arrested to make their way through the deportation process, immigration lawyers say.

After what happened with Glass in NY, coach Guy Boucher dressed rugged nwinger Chris Neil, who has played only one game in the last month, as a deterrent.

"I think everyone is starting to learn that". We should have won this game. Tom Pyatt, Mike Hoffman and Mark Stone were also able to beat Henrik Lundqvist.

And it's not just the forwards who need to step up, Phaneuf said.

The Swede has a team-leading 11 points in 11 games this spring.

Teams that win Game 5 when a series is tied 2-2 have gone on to win 78.7 per cent of the time, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, including a flawless 3-0 in 2017.

But once their backs are against the wall, they decide to play like the team they are capable of being. NY has got to the star defenseman.

At home in the playoffs this season, the Rangers are 4-1 (2-0 against the Senators and 2-1 against the Canadiens). But you have to wonder just how much he's hurting? I just went into the slot there, I just batted it out of the air and I got lucky. Now is the time the Ottawa Senators prove they belong. "I kind of asked some of the guys and they said not to worry about it".

"This game, we have to forget right now and focus on the next one".

For the Rangers to survive in this series, they can not afford to sit on a lead.

"The opponent in NY had some ammunition in terms of physicality and we had some ammunition also and we used it today", Boucher said. They are a team created to win close, low-scoring games, and they've generally done so with an effective defense designed by coach Guy Boucher to funnel everything to the sides of the ice. Ottawa's done, they have no chance, the series is over.
