Rangers gain point, but fall in shootout

by Staff Writer / New York Rangers

NEW YORK (AP) - Milan Michalek capped Ottawa's three-goal comeback in the third period and then netted the only goal in the shootout as the Senators stormed back to beat the New York Rangers 5-4 and stretch their winning streak to five.

Jason Spezza started the rally from a 4-1 hole by scoring twice, and Michalek tied it with Ottawa's third goal in a 7:52 span when he put in his seventh of the young season with 2:50 remaining.

That wiped out a big day by Rangers top forwards Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik who were split up as linemates but produced three points each - with Richards scoring two goals.

The Senators are making a habit of heart-pounding comebacks. They won two straight home games with goals in the final minute of regulation.
