The Rangers look to take the series lead for the first time in a pivotal Game 5 in Ottawa.
Over 262:54 of game time through the first four contests this series, the Rangers have led for 149:56, have been tied for 108:47, and have trailed for 4:11.
The Blueshirts have won each of their past 15 playoff series in which they gained a win in Game 5, dating back to the Patrick Division Semifinals vs. Philadelphia in 1986.
Derek Stepan enters Game 5 with points in three straight games (one goal, two assists).
The alternate captain had 19:44 time-on-ice Thursday and picked up an assist on Chris Kreider’s third-period power-play goal.
Stepan has skated in 95 career playoff games with the Rangers, which is more than any other forward in franchise history.
“Look at these assists. They are not exactly playmaking assists. They are just kind of the gritty, grinding game I bring. Sometimes it ends up in the back of the net.”
