The New York Rangers lose 3-0 in Ottawa

The New York Rangers lost 3-0 to the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night. They are trying to hold on to at least the eight seed in the Eastern conference. They really don’t want to finish eighth and face off against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round of the NHL playoffs. They would rather finish eighth though and take their chances then the season to be over and them not making the playoffs. 
It was 0-0 at the end of the first period and although the Rangers didn’t have many chances they felt they played a pretty good period. They were losing 1-0 at the end of two and then the Senators scored two in the third to finish the game off.

Andre Benoit scored his second goal on the power play at the 19:11 mark of the period. In the third the goals were scored at the 12:16 mark and the 17:58 mark. The goals were scored by Guillaume Latendresse with his fifth goal and Colin Greening with his sixth goal of the season.

Henrik Lundqvist made 26 saves out of 28 shots and Bishop was 24-24. Ottawa had the shots advantage with 29 to the Rangers 24. The Rangers were 0-4 on the power play and Ottawa was 1-2. The Rangers will play at the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night. They remain in eighth place in the Eastern Conference just behind the NJ Devils for seventh place.
