Karlsson helps Senators edge Rangers 2-1 in Game 1

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) Erik Karlsson was hoping for a good bounce. He got a great one.

Karlsson's shot from an almost impossible angle beat Henrik Lundqvist with 4:11 left in the third period, sending the Ottawa Senators to a 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers in the opener of their second-round playoff series on Thursday night.

Karlsson's first attempt was blocked by Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh, but the second - the shot leaving his tape from below the goal line - somehow found its way past the Swedish goaltender, who had been nearly unbeatable to that point.
