With the Rangers ahead 1-0, two goals in 12 seconds early in the second period broke the game open. Mats Zuccarello, with his first goal in 19 games, came when he backhanded in a rebound of Derek Stepan's shot at 6:26. On the next faceoff, Artem Anisimov zipped across the blue line, deked, cut right to left and buried a forehand past Anderson at 6:38 for a 3-0 lead. It was only the third time the Blueshirts had scored more than two goals in eight games. The Sens almost scored twice in the final 30 seconds, when Erik Karlsson hit the outside of a wide-open net from the lower right circle and another shot hit the crossbar.
If the Rangers can secure their first win in four games, they would improve to 20-13-1 on the road. Anderson had been superb against the Rangers when he was with Colorado, going 4-1-1 with a 1.48 GAA.
