NHL Eastern Conference Semifinal Series Game 2 Preview: Ottawa vs New York
Goals were rare in the opening match of this best-of-seven series. We feel bad for Lundqvist as he stood on his head stopping 41 of the 43 shots the Senators fired at him. After finishing fourth with 256 goals in the regular season, scoring continues to be an issue for the Blueshirts as they have lit the lamp just 15 times during their first seven postseason contests. J.T. Miller, Derek Stephan and Chris Kreider had 164 points in the regular season – they have four points in the playoffs.
Playing in a seventh straight one-goal game, Ottawa continues to do just enough to win during the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs. After producing less than 30 shots in regulation time during all six of their matches vs Montreal, Ottawa cranked up their offense as ripped 43 shots at the Rangers. Knowing they can get pucks on net is a positive for the Senators but they will need to get more than two scores behind Lundqvist in the battles moving forward.
