Chris Neil scored the game winning goal just 1:17 into overtime helping the Ottawa Senators to a 3-2 win at Madison Square Garden to tie the best-of-seven opening round playoff series at 1-1.

Each team lost a player to game-misconduct penalties in the first period during a large scuffle.

Matt Carkner was ejected and the Senators were issued a five-minute penalty after smashing Brian Boyle in the boards, followed with bare-knuckles to Boyle’s face.

Brandon Dubinsky, and everyone else on the ice, jumped into the melee. Dubinsky was issued a game misconduct and sent to the locker room (video below).

While the Rangers did not score on  five-minute power play, Anton Stralman was able to find the back of the net with a man-advantage later in the first, putting New York up 1-0.

After Erik Karrlson tied it in the second period, Boyle beat Sens goalie Craig  early in the third to put the blue-shirts back on top.

With under four-minutes to play, Nick Foligno tied it at 2.

The series move to Ottawa on Monday night at 7:30.
