OTTAWA (AP) - Ben Bishop turned aside 24 shots to earn his second career NHL shutout and the Ottawa Senators beat the New York Rangers 3-0 on Thursday night.

Andre Benoit, Guillaume Latendresse and Colin Greening scored for the Senators, and Mika Zibanejad and Chris Neil chipped in with two assists apiece.

Henrik Lundqvist made 26 saves for the Rangers, who applied heavy pressure while trailing 1-0 midway through the third period but could not get the puck past Bishop. The Ottawa goaltender was unflappable, throwing his body in front of a Ryan McDonagh shot and using the shaft of his stick to block another.

When the Senators finally relieved the pressure after about a minute, they went down ice and Latendresse beat Lundqvist with a low shot from the faceoff circle. Greening scored into an empty net with just over two minutes to play.

The Senators had the only goal of the opening two periods when Benoit let loose a point shot that found the back of the net with Anton Stralman in the penalty box for tripping.

Lundqvist was visibly upset with McDonagh immediately following the goal. Not only did Lundqvist not see the shot, but he took an elbow to the head from his defenseman just before it went in.

McDonagh was in between Lundqvist and Ottawa forward Chris Neil battling fighting for position in front of the net.

Neil won that battle to help the Senators take a 1-0 lead which proved to be all they needed.
