It only took 51 seconds—51 seconds—for the New York Rangers to fall behind 1-0. The season-long mistakes were once again magnified as the Rangers trailed throughout. Henrik Lundqvist was pulled in the third period for rookie Brandon Halverson, who was making his first career NHL appearance. The Senators had no trouble in this one as they handed the Rangers their third loss in a row, winning 6-3.
