Kyle Turris scored at 2:42 of overtime to give the Ottawa Senators a 3-2 victory over the Rangers on Wednesday night, tying the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series at two games apiece.

Milan Michalek and Sergei Gonchar scored in the second period for the Senators to erase a 2-0 deficit, and Craig Anderson stopped 31 shots.

Anton Stralman and Ryan Callahan had power-plays goals early in the first period for the Rangers. Henrik Lundqvist made 28 saves.

Both teams had great opportunities to take the lead in the third period. Ottawa created a flurry of chances in the final minute, but was unable to beat Lundqvist. The Rangers' best opportunity came with just over five minutes remaining when Nick Foligno was called for tripping, but the Senators killed the penalty.

Anderson made big saves on Brian Boyle and Brad Richards early in the period, and Lundqvist made a huge save on Chris Phillips with just over seven minutes remaining.

Ottawa cut it to 2-1 at the 7:04 of the second. Matt Carkner, coming out of the penalty box, took a pass from Jason Spezza and fed it to Michalek, who backhanded it over Lundqvist's right shoulder.  The crowd of 20,340 at Scotiabank Place gave Ottawa a standing ovation for more than 3 minutes.

Ottawa tied it on the same power play, with Gonchar's shot from the top of the faceoff circle making it through traffic and past Lundqvist with 2:10 left in the period.

After going 1-for-11 on the power play in the first three games, the Rangers scored twice with the man advantage in the first period. Stralman opened the scoring at 49 seconds, and Callahan was left all alone at the side of the net to bang in a rebound at 6:10.
