Rangers Vs. Senators, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 5: Ottawa Hangs Onto 1-0 Edge

Henrik Lundqvist was perfect for the New York Rangers in the second period of game five versus the Ottawa Senators. Problem is, so too was his net minding counterpart, Craig Anderson, who has kept his team up on Blueshirts 1-0.

The Rangers continue to control play, having racked up 26 shots, including 12 in the second period. But they've yet to find a way to solve Anderson, who is having his sharpest night of the playoffs thus far.

The winner of tonight's action will take a 3-2 lead in the series. With the Pittsburgh Penguins staving off elimination on Friday night against Philadelphia, each of the four quarterfinal match ups in the Eastern Conference will last at least six games.
