Trailing 2-0, the Rangers thought they had cut the Senators’ lead in half near the midpoint of the second period but the goal was waved off because the referee had blown the whistle prior to the puck crossing the goal line.

With the Senators dominating most of the action, Colin White nearly made it 3-0 when he rang a shot off the post.

Ottawa did go ahead 3-0 late in the second after an impressive passing display that ended with Duchene scoring his team-leading 12th.

With an assist on Duchene’s goal, Ryan Dzingel picked up his 100th career point.
