The New York Rangers lost to the Ottawa Senators by the score of 3-2 in overtime in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinals matchup. The series is now tied 2-2. For a recap and box score go to Yahoo! Sports.

...god damn, mother effin', sh$t sucking, piece of crap!!!!!!!!! Ok to the post game thoughts.

...game was completely going the Rangers way, then bam, huge save by Anderson on Staal and the puck is in the back of the Rangers net. Single biggest play of the game. Gave the Sens life and Rangers were on their heels the rest of the game. I told you Anderson scared me going into this series.

...how can the Rangers score two power play goals and their man up unit still suck?

...wonder if Dubinsky would be able to score a goal if he was playing in the Penguins/Flyers series. Doubt it.

...paging Mr. Gaborik, Mr. Gaborik please pick up the nearest courtesy phone.

...thought I saw The Broadway Hat behind the Rangers bench tonight because Torts was definitely picking line combinations out of it. It's the playoffs Torts, pick line combinations and go with them.

...what has gotten into Anton Stralman? The guy's a stud out there.

...what? No game winning goal for Boyle? He sucks.

...Kreider gets the Avery treatment with just 3:29 of ice time. Why is he even in uniform if he's not going to play? He's actually one of the few players on the team that goes to the net, which has lead to a some golden opportunities for him. Bad job by Torts not getting him more ice time.

...got to say I'm shocked by Stepan's absence in this series. Usually a money player.

...awesome stat line for Richards tonight with 2a, 8 SOG, 6 blocked shots and 14-for-23 on face-offs.

...not going to kill Lundqvist on the winner, but I'd like to see him come up with that one. Would never want him to change the way he plays, but if he's out on top of his crease that's an easy save.

...Torts not having a Jack Adams-like series right now.

...now that's the Marc Staal I remember.

...Rangers haven't won an OT playoff game since Rozsival winner vs. Sabres in 2007 (0-for-7).

...hate to admit it, but Neil and Konopka are much better players than I thought.

...sorry I have to, Rangers could have used Avery in this series.

...how does the ref miss that high stick on Girardi? Very reminiscent of missed high stick on Drury against Pens back in 2008 playoffs. Even worse that Sens score on ensuing faceoff.

...best of three series heads back to MSG for Game 5 on Saturday night.
