Rangers able to tie up series with Sens

NEW YORK—Derek Brassard stood in front of a semi-circle throng of reporters in the pin drop silent visitors' dressing room inside Madison Square Garden and spoke.

His voice matched the volume in the room.

“Pretty much our all-around game, we need to be better,” Brassard said after the Ottawa Senators' 4-1 loss to the N.Y. Rangers in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semi-final.

Scherzer fans 11

WASHINGTON—Eight years later, Max Scherzer still finds a little extra motivation when he faces his first major-league team.

Scherzer struck out a season-high 11 to bounce back from his worst outing this season as Washington doubled the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-2 yesterday after losing Bryce Harper to a groin injury.

Ducks knot series with OT victory

EDMONTON—Ducks' captain Ryan Getzlaf was a one-man wrecking crew in Anaheim's 4-3 overtime win over the Edmonton Oilers last night.

Getzlaf scored twice and assisted on two goals, including Jakob Silfverberg's OT winner just 45 seconds in, to even up their best-of-seven series at 2-2.

“If he keeps doing this, we're going to have fun time here,” Silfverberg said.

Nationals nip D'backs

WASHINGTON—Jacob Turner never imagined his first win in Washington would come like this.

Turner pitched four innings of scoreless relief to save a depleted bullpen, and Ryan Zimmerman doubled in the go-ahead run in the sixth inning, as the Nationals beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-1 last night.
