Kyle Turris scored 2:42 into overtime as the Ottawa Senators took a 3-2 win over the New York Rangers in Game 4 of this Eastern Conference quarterfinal series.

Jim O'Brien gained the Rangers end down the left wing and cut over before leaving a drop pass for Turris, who skated over to the left circle and snapped a shot over the glove of Henrik Lundqvist and just under the bar in the right corner.

Coming off Monday's Game 3 loss in which Lundqvist guided the Rangers to a 1-0 victory, the Senators tied this best-of-seven series at two games apiece with Game 5 set for Saturday night in the Big Apple.

Sergei Gonchar posted a goal and an assist while Milan Michalek added a goal for the Senators, who played a second straight game without captain Daniel Alfredsson as he suffered a concussion in Game 2 after he was elbowed in the head by New York's Carl Hagelin. Craig Anderson continued to shine in the series as he stopped 31 shots.

Ryan Callahan and Anton Stralman posted goals for the Rangers, who got 28 stops from Lundqvist in the loss.
