Turris' OT goal gives Senators 3-2 series lead over Rangers

"Frankly, I have to tell you that I'd rather watch a game on TV, because I find it too noisy in the [Canadian Tire] Centre", he said.

"You just try to wear the other team down and eventually they will go in", added Turris. "We came out, we wanted to work and match that, it just didn't get done, and they capitalized on a couple of opportunities and essentially that was the difference".

The Rangers have scored first all five games this series. "Maybe the guys didn't know the goaltender was coming, but there was less than two minutes (to play) and (Ottawa) was down by a goal so they should expect it but maybe the guys got caught not knowing the goalie was out".

"It was Kentucky Derby day; I guess that was our horse tonight", said Boucher.

Derick Brassard tied the score with 1:26 left in the third period for the Senators. Then Game 2 happened and that's one that New York Rangers players and fans won't soon forget.

While Fleury struggled for the first time against the Capitals, Vezina Trophy finalist Braden Holtby had his best game of the series, stopping 20 of the 22 shots he faced. "We were playing a real solid second half of the game there. The six guys on the ice, we did it, and that's the best feeling in the world".

Period 3 started with a new man in net for Ottawa. "The message, even when they scored their fourth goal on the bench, all of the coaches, players, everyone stayed positive: 'We have seven minutes to have a chance to tie the game'".

Michael Grabner appeared to win it for the Rangers less than five minutes into overtime, but it was disallowed because his redirection came on a high-stick. And with the Rangers exploding, scoring 13 goals in their last three contests, the odds have to be stacked against a Sens comeback.

"After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the linesman, NHL Hockey Operations staff confirmed that Turris had possession and control of the puck as he entered the attacking zone prior to the goal", an NHL statement said.

Prior to enactment of the legislation, Puerto Rico would have been barred from any bankruptcy filing as a USA territory. The governor did note, however, that negotiations for a consensual restructuring agreement wouldn't come to a halt.

The rule of thumb in the playoffs is to be cautious about what you hear about injuries and the roster isn't really settled until the league issues it moments before puck drop on its website. Henrik Lundqvist has allowed 21 goals on 333 shots faced.

"It's 2-2, that's all it is", Lundqvist said.

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 ideal 3-0 in 2017.

Jimmy Vesey, Ryan McDonagh, Nick Holden and Jesper Fast were able to beat Craig Anderson, who came up big in the third period as the Rangers pushed.

"We didn't play well (in New York)". "We just take the time as it and refocus here, get rejuvenated, look at some things we can do better". He was diagnosed with his second concussion of the season after taking a cross-check in the head from Capitals defenseman Matt Niskanen in Game 3. He was averaging 34:04 time on ice in nine playoff games and has eight points. The Rangers made no lineup changes.

Knocked around by Rangers forward Tanner Glass at the end of the club's 4-1 loss in Game 4, Turris got his revenge in a big way. They were his second and third points of this series.

"We've talked about not sabotaging ourselves and we were on our way to do that again", Boucher said the 5-4 Game 5 win.

During the season, the Senators usually skate at home and then board a flight if theyre hitting the road.
