NEW YORK, April 14 (UPI) -- Chris Neil's goal 77 seconds into overtime Saturday boosted Ottawa to a 3-2 win over the New York Rangers, evening their first-round playoff series 1-1.

Shortly after a faceoff win in the New York zone, Jared Cowen's blast from the slot was blocked by New York defenseman Ryan McDonagh, who sprawled to stop the shot.
