GAME RECAP

Associated Press

Ben Bishop made 25 saves in his home debut with the Senators, and Ottawa beat the Rangers 4-1 Thursday night.

Nick Foligno had the winning goal, and Zack Smith, Kyle Turris and Jason Spezza, with an empty-netter, also scored for the Sens.

The Rangers (42-17-7) grabbed a 1-0 lead on Ryan Callahan's first-period goal, but dropped to 30-2-3 in games in which they scored first. The Rangers, who lost 4-1 at New Jersey on Tuesday, hadn't lost two straight in regulation since Dec. 15.

Martin Biron made 18 saves. The Rangers, who began a stretch of three games in four days, are expected to have No. 1 goalie Henrik Lundqvist in net Friday at Chicago.

With just seven shots through two periods, the Senators rarely tested Biron, but Ottawa took advantage of a number of rebounds.

Turris scored his eighth of the season, jumping on the rebound of Daniel Alfredsson's shot from the point to give the Senators a 3-1 lead early in the third.

Bishop looked a little nervous at the start as the Rangers grabbed the lead 4:36 in. Callahan tipped a pass from Brad Richards into an open right side of the net as he caught Bishop moving.

The lead was short-lived as Smith fired in a slap shot from the top of the left circle at 5:50 for his first goal in 13 games.

THE BIGGER PICTURE
The Rangers have been so good this season that a two-game slide in regulation-time almost feels like some sort of a major slump. That's only because this team hasn't been in that situation for three months. Look for a bounce-back on Friday.
