The series between the New York Rangers and Ottawa Senators is starting to heat up.
Senators netminder Craig Anderson was lifted after the second period, allowing three goals on 20 shots.
"Pretty much our all-around game, we need to be better", Brassard said after his Ottawa Senators lost 4-1 to the New York Rangers in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinal.
Kyle Turris scored the Senators' lone goal as Ottawa dropped its second straight in the series, but that's a subplot to potentially three bigger issues.
In overtime, the Senators owned the puck as the Rangers were held without a single shot while Ottawa fired off six shots on Henrik Lundqvist before Turris finally snuck one between his five-hole.
NY nearly snared the game-winner four minutes into the extra period, but Michael Grabner's goal was disallowed due to a high stick. And suddenly - after looking so lost in NY - the Senators now find themselves one game away from the Eastern Conference finals.
Fredrik Claesson will return to the Sens lineup for Game 5 against the Rangers on Saturday afternoon.
Crosby had an assist and Carl Hagelin and Phil Kessel also scored for the Penguins, who lead the second-round series 3-2 with Game 6 back in Pittsburgh on Monday night. Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry will look to close out the Edmonton Oilers, who will have to rebound after blowing a 3-0 lead in the final four minutes only to lose 4-3 in double overtime.
With Anderson out for the extra attacker, Brassard tied up with 1:26 to go when he was able to knock a rebound out of the air by Lundqvist.
The first time it happened during these playoffs was in Game 2 of the first-round series against the Canadiens, when Tomas Plekanec was able to tie the game with 17.3 seconds remaining in regulation.

The television pictures showed Karlsson in agony on the bench after a collision with Rangers forward Chris Kreider late in the second period. They outscored 11-5 in those games, which was definitely not a good luck for them in the middle of a race for first place. Do-everything defenseman Erik Karlsson, who's been playing with hairline fractures in his heel and has been positively punished physically in this series, left the game with a noticeable limp.
His group cut the two-goal deficit in half 50 seconds after the Holden goal. He still made 60 saves as the Ducks pelted the Oilers netminder. I have no doubt that the players now in the lineup are trying their absolute hardest to win.
And while he played only five shifts and 2:26 of just his second game since February 26, he did the opposite of leaving the Senators short-handed.
Scrums at the end of one-sided games, such as the Rangers' 4-1 triumph Thursday night, generally do not have much of an impact on the remainder of the series.
The Senators struck for two goals 33 seconds apart a short while later.
Karlsson played during the first round of the playoffs with two microfractures in one of his feet that he suffered trying to block a shot late in the regular season. Oscar Lindberg first hit a post as the Rangers spent shift after shift in Ottawa's zone. Start a worse goalie to prevent more goals.
Ryan McDonagh knotted things up at 3-3 to send the teams into the final period tied.
The Senators outshot the Rangers 15-10 in the first period.
Nearly 30 years later, Vigneault also expressed no concerns about the impact Chris Neil might provide the Senators in Game 5. Anderson looked to have pulled it back with his glove, but video review confirmed that the puck crossed the line.
