New York Rangers eliminate Ottawa Senators in 7 games, advance to Stanley Cup semifinals vs. Washington Capitals

April 28, 2012

All’s well that ends well for the New York Rangers, who stormed back from a 3-2 Stanley Cup quarterfinals series deficit to defeat the Senators in Game 6 in Ottawa and then in Game 7 at Madison Square Garden on Thursday night. The Rangers weren’t the only ones challenged in the first round: three out of the four Eastern Conference matchups went to 7 games. Next up for the #1 seed Rangers: the Washington Capitals, who just knocked off the #2 seed Boston Bruins. The series begins this afternoon.

Here are a handful of my favorite shots from Thursday’s Game 7 win over the Senators (¬©Madison Square Garden, L.P.).
