OTTAWA (AP) - Kaspars Daugavins scored in the seventh round of the shootout and backup goalie Ben Bishop picked up the victory in relief of injured starter Craig Anderson and the Ottawa Senators defeated the New York Rangers 3-2 on Thursday.
The Senators lost Anderson at 1:43 of the third period after Rangers forward Chris Kreider was tripped in front and slid into him.
No penalty was called on the play and Anderson had to be helped to the locker room.
The team said that the 31-year-old Anderson, who leads the league with a 1.57 goals-against average and .950 save percentage, has a sprained right ankle and is listed day to day.
The Senators are also dealing with injuries to defenseman Erik Karlsson (Achilles) and center Jason Spezza (back).
Daugavins appeared to mishit his winning shootout attempt that beat Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist between the legs. Kreider then needed to score to keep the game going, but he couldn't beat Bishop.
