New York Rangers battle to 5-4 shootout win over Ottawa Senators

October 2, 2010

In an unusually aggressive, high-energy exhibition preseason game, the New York Rangers showed a whole lot of fight (despite no actual fights in the game) by coming back from 3-2 and 4-3 deficits to win after giving up a 2-0 lead to the Senators, eventually winning 5-4 in an overtime shootout. The victory brings the Rangers’ preseason record to 4-1-0, with their last preseason game tonight in Ottawa. The Rangers will open the regular season in a week with a couple of games on the road, followed by their home opener against the Toronto Maple Leafs on October 15th.
