NHL: Ottawa 2, New York Rangers 0

April 21, 2012 at 9:56 PM

NEW YORK, April 21 (UPI) -- Craig Anderson logged a 41-save shutout Saturday, lifting Ottawa into the advantage of its first-round playoff series with a 2-0 win over the New York Rangers.

Anderson turned aside all 15 shots he saw in the final period, registering his second straight strong performance as the Senators grabbed a 3-games-to-2 lead in their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series.

Jason Spezza, who hadn't dented the net in the series, scored midway through the first period and added an empty-netter for the Sens, who have stormed back from a 2-games-to-1 deficit to put the top-seeded Rangers on the brink of elimination.

Henrik Lundqvist made 28 saves for New York, which will try to stay alive in Monday's Game 6 in Ottawa.
