2012 NHL Playoffs, Rangers Vs. Senators: Scoreless Third Period Send Game 4 To Overtime

The New York Rangers and Ottawa Senators are headed to overtime. Neither team could break a 2-2 tie in the third period, sending the game into sudden death overtime.

NHL overtime rules dictate that the first team to score in overtime wins. Teams play a 20-minute periods, with normal 15-minute intermissions until someone scores a goal. A win tonight would give New York a commanding 3-1 series lead. For Ottawa, an overtime win would not only tie the series, it could give them a healthy burst of momentum.

Henrik Lundqvist stopped nine shots in net for the Rangers, getting back into his fine first-period form. Craig Anderson held back 11 shots from the Rangers as both goalies went a long way toward keeping things scoreless in the final frame of regulation.
