Ottawa's Chris Neil scored a little more than a minute into overtime to give the Senators a 3-2 win over the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden Saturday night.

The overtime tally lifted the Senators into a 1-1 tie with the Blueshirts in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference playoff quarterfinals.

Brian Boyle put the Rangers ahead 2-1 with a goal in the third period, but New York gave up the lead when Ottawa's Nick Foligno tied the game with 4:37 left in regulation.

Boyle started out the game on the wrong side of a fight with Ottawa's Matt Carkner, who attacked the Rangers forward just two minutes into the opening period. Carkner was kicked out of the game with a misconduct penalty, but so was New York's Brandon Dubinsky, who was the third man into the fray.

Anton Stralman scored the Rangers' other goal with a power play tally midway through the first.

The series now shifts to Ottawa, where game 3 will be played on Monday night. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
