Ben Bishop turned aside 24 shots to earn his second career NHL shutout and the Ottawa Senators beat the New York Rangers, 3-0, on Thursday night. Andre Benoit, Guillaume Latendresse and Colin Greening scored for the Senators, and Mika Zibanejad and Chris Neil chipped in with two assists apiece. Henrik Lundqvist made 26 saves for the Rangers, who applied heavy pressure while trailing 1-0 midway through the third period but could not get the puck past Bishop. The Ottawa goaltender was unflappable, throwing his body in front of a Ryan McDonagh shot and using the shaft of his stick to block another. When the Senators finally relieved the pressure after about a minute, they went down ice and Latendresse beat Lundqvist with a low shot from the faceoff circle. Greening scored into an empty net with just over two minutes to play.

Report: Bruins Claim Kaspars Daugavins Off Waivers From Senators

The Bruins made a peculiar move on Wednesday afternoon around the waiver wire. According to reports, the B’s claimed forward Kaspars Daugavins off waivers after the Senators put the 24-year-old on waivers on Monday. Daugavins will be a restricted free agent at the end of this season, and he’s making just $635,000 this season, according to CapGeek.com. Daugavins is no stranger...

Bruins Claim Kaspars Daugavins Off Waivers

The Bruins made a surprise pickup on Wednesday when they added former Senator Kaspars Daugavins (yes, that Kaspars Daugavins) after claiming him off of waivers. The Senators placed the 24-year-old forward on waivers on Monday. It’s a low-risk, cheap move by B’s GM Peter Chiarelli that has the potential to give the Bruins roster a bit more depth on the bottom half. Daugavins...

Bruins Claim Daug

I think it's safe to say that if David Dziurzynski had not been knocked out March 6 vs Toronto, Kaspars Daugavins would not have been waived yesterday. But instead we saw a reactionary trade for Matt Kassian, and a useful depth player waived and then claimed by a superior team. AJ Jakubec suggested yesterday afternoon that the reasoning behind the waiving was a complaint...

Game 33 preview: Rangers at Ottawa

Scott Levy/NHLI via Getty Images The Rangers are in Ottawa tonight for their third and final matchup against a Senators team that gives them trouble every game. The Rangers have gone 0-1-1 against Ottawa this season, and are at least looking to even that out and gain another two points in the standings.

Rangers-Senators Preview

Goaltender Craig Anderson is close to playing for the first time since the Ottawa Senators last hosted the New York Rangers, but there may be no rush the way Ben Bishop and Robin Lehner have performed.
