April 18, 2012 at 11:47 PM

OTTAWA, April 18 (UPI) -- Kyle Turris fired a shot past Henrik Lundqvist 2:42 into overtime Wednesday, giving the Ottawa Senators a 3-2 series-tying win over the New York Rangers.

With the first-round playoff confrontation deadlocked at 2-2, the series moves to New York Saturday for Game 5.

Turris took a drop pass from Jim O'Brien before firing the winning goal from the left faceoff circle. He beat Lundqvist to the glove side with the puck sailing just under the crossbar.

Ottawa overcame a 2-0 deficit to get the win.

Anton Stralman and Ryan Callahan scored on power plays for the Rangers in the opening period, with Stralman's goal coming 49 seconds into the game.

Craig Anderson blanked the Rangers the rest of the way while making 31 saves.

Milan Michalek and Sergei Gonchar scored in the second period to tie the contest.

Lundqvist stopped 28-of-31 shots.
