OTTAWA -- Picking up where they left off in a grueling seven-game playoff series last spring, the New York Rangers and Ottawa Senators battled hard down to the wire and beyond Thursday night at Scotiabank Place.
Fourth-liner Kaspars Daugavins scored in the seventh round of the shootout to give the Senators a 3-2 victory.
Third-period goals 51 seconds apart by the Rangers' Ryan Callahan and Ryan McDonagh helped New York overcome a 1-0 deficit, but Mika Zibanejad tied the score with a power-play goal 6:30 from the end of the third period to set up extra time.
The Senators suffered what could be another serious injury, this one to goalie Craig Anderson. Rangers winger Chris Kreider slid into Anderson 1:43 into the third period, after Anderson had stopped all 21 shots he had faced. Anderson needed help getting off the ice, but the team later said he would be day to day with an ankle sprain.
Anderson has the best-goals against average and save percentage of all No. 1 goalies in the NHL. He was replaced by Ben Bishop, who stopped 10 shots in regulation and three in the five- minute overtime, including a big save against Marian Gaborik, who hit the post with his attempt on the rebound.
The Senators' lengthy injury list includes Norris Trophy-winning defenseman Erik Karlsson and center Jason Spezza, who finished fourth in league scoring last season. Spezza could return before the regular season ends, but Karlsson is expected to be lost for the season.
The Senators were up 1-0 on a first-period goal by rookie Swede Jakob Silfverberg at the time of Anderson's injury.
Silfverberg's third goal of the season was scored with teammate Eric Gryba in the penalty box serving a tripping penalty. After chasing down a clearing effort by Daniel Alfredsson, Silfverberg outmuscled Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi to move in alone on Henrik Lundqvist. From the edge of the crease, he roofed a quick backhander for his first NHL short-handed goal and the second of the season.
Lundqvist had 36 saves through the first 65 minutes. One of his biggest might was off Kyle Turris, whose overtime blast was headed for the bottom corner before it met Lundqvist's left goalie pad.
