Ottawa leads the best-of-seven series 2-0 following Saturday afternoon's 6-5 double overtime win in which Jean-Gabriel Pageau scored four goals, including the game-winner 2:54 into the fifth period. The all-star defenceman, who is playing with two hairline fractures in his left heel, fell awkwardly late in the second period.
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.
Game 5 is Saturday at Ottawa.
"We were just not there, period", Senators coach Guy Boucher said.
The Rangers have won at least one game in 21 straight postseason series since being swept by New Jersey in the first round in 2006, setting a franchise record.
Yet it was the Rangers who opened the scoring for the fourth straight game with Holden's perfectly placed shot between Anderson's blocker and pad at 14:04 of the first giving NY a 1-0 lead. They can have a guy like Glass running around all he wants, but we're physically not going to back down. "We were able to score a couple, get early pace and win the game".
NOTES: The home team has won all four games. This marked back-to-back games with goals for Lindberg.
The Rangers skated a almost identical lineup from Game 2 - despite a shocking late-game collapse - with the only change being Tanner Glass replacing Pavel Buchnevich on the fourth line. The Senators are averaging 2.5 goals per game and are scoring on 17 percent of their power play opportunities.

CEO Brian Hartzer warned: "There is no 'magic pudding.' The cost of any new tax is ultimately borne by shareholders, borrowers, depositors, and employees".
"We have to play to a much higher level", said Ottawa defenceman Dion Phaneuf. Just look at how he fights through a crowd to get across and rob Mark Stone with his pad.

In the first round last month against Montreal, the Rangers trailed 2-1 before also winning three in a row to advance to this round.
Overshadowed by all the goals and assists from unheralded players such as Oscar Lindberg, Nick Holden and Tanner Glass? Thirteen minutes 53 seconds later, Lindberg hammered a heavy shot from the left side which ricocheted in and out of the net as Glass screened Anderson.
Their struggles against heavy hitting teams are quite ironic, considering they averaged the fourth most hits per game in the league (25.8).
Anderson and Ben Harpur's miscommunication set up New York's second goal as both the Ottawa goaltender and his rookie defenceman attempted to play a Zuccarello dump-in behind the net.
Lindberg made it 4-0 with 1:43 left in the period. Allen finished with 23 saves as the Blues lost consecutive road games for the first time since February 28 and March 3. We always try to get a strong start, but some games you really come flying out of the gates. We likely won't hear the full extent of his injuries until the Senators season is over. Game's 1 and 2 were as bad as the Rangers have played this series, and Game's 3 and 4 were about as dominating as they've been in quite a while. NY outshot Ottawa 15-5 in a penalty-free first 20 minutes.
