2012 NHL Playoffs, Rangers Vs. Senators Game 4: Lundqvist Less Than Perfect As Ottawa Ties It 2-2 In The Second Period

The New York Rangers allowed a two-goal lead to lapse in the second period of their fourth game against the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night. Ottawa scored two ten minutes apart to make it a 2-2 tie after the second period.

Milan Michalek tallied the Senators' first goal of the night seven minutes into the middle frame. Assisted by Matt Carkner and Jason Spezza, Michalek put a backhanded shot in the back of the net after a Rangers power play lapsed. Ten minutes later, with the man advantage after Artem Anisimov left the ice for tripping Spezza, Sergei Gonchar fired a long slap shot from the top of the zone to tie the game.

Ottawa fired off nine shots at Henrik Lundqvist, who looked unstoppable in the first period. Craig Anderson turned away seven shots from the Rangers who failed to convert two power play chances in the period.
