NEW YORK (AP) - Daniel Alfredsson gave Ottawa a five-goal lead early in the third period and the Senators then held off New York's furious rally to beat the Rangers 6-4 Thursday night.

Just two nights after a lacklustre 5-3 home loss to the New York Islanders that snapped a four-game winning streak and caused a rare post-game rant from coach Tom Renney, the Rangers fell behind 5-0 early in the third period.

Ray Emery and the Senators were cruising when Alfredsson's goal at 1:02 of the third sent many Rangers fans home early.

They missed a lot. This one wasn't settled until Dany Heatley's empty-net goal with 34 seconds left.

Emery, 6-1-1 in his past eight starts, allowed only 13 goals in that span before the Rangers broke out with four in 7:10.

Petr Prucha netted the first, drawing sarcastic cheers at 3:29. Jason Ward followed 45 seconds later, and when Marcel Hossa cut the deficit to 5-3 at 6:20, Madison Square Garden was solidly behind the home team.

Wow, was that ever close. I tune into the 3rd to see the score 5-0, then change the channel to NHL network to catc hsome highlights on the Leafs.

I change it back, and it's 5-2.

Change the channel away for a few minutes, and it's 5-3. :eek:

Of course, with the way things turned out, I have to keep the channel there. I'm not going to miss this finish.

Rangers score again, and it's 5-4. :eek:

There was a questionable call play made by Chris Kelly in the last 3 minutes of the game that didn't get called, and The Rangers pull there goalie. They miss one last chance in front of Emery, and Heatley finally potted one in.

6-4 Final.

What a finish.
