NEW YORK -- The New York Rangers came up short in their first shot at clinching a playoff berth. Garrett Richards Jersey . The Ottawa Senators bounced back from a humbling loss and gave their flickering post-season chances a slight spark. When all was said and done Saturday night, the Senators skated off with a 3-2 win at Madison Square Garden that boosted their hopes and delayed any celebration for the host Rangers. "Were just trying to win games," said Senators captain Jason Spezza, whose second-period goal was the winner. "Were trying to build some momentum, win games and play right. "If were winning games, it will be a more enjoyable end of the season." The Senators shook off a 7-4 loss to Montreal on Friday when a 3-0 lead was wiped out by seven straight goals against them. Ottawa is five points behind the second wild card in the Eastern Conference, but the Senators will have to jump over four teams with only four games left to get into the playoffs. "We wanted to have a response just for the morale of the group," Spezza said. "We know its been a disappointing year, we know that we havent reached expectations, but we still have these games left to play so we want to win them." Robin Lehner made 41 saves and held off a furious late push by the Rangers, who still need one point to secure a playoff spot. They could qualify before their next game if New Jersey loses to Calgary on Monday. The Rangers will host Carolina on Tuesday. "We are still in a good spot," defenceman Dan Girardi said. "Its in our hands to get that win in our next game, and hopefully secure home ice in the first round." New York, with three games remaining, would get that if it keeps its hold on second place in the Metropolitan Division over Philadelphia, which lost at Boston on Saturday. The Flyers trail by four points with five games left. The Rangers, back home after a 2-1-1 Western road trip, started slowly and trailed 2-0 in the first period. Mark Stone and Mika Zibanejad put Ottawa in front, and Spezza made it 3-1 in the second. Mats Zuccarello deflected in two goals in the second to bring the Rangers within a goal each time. Henrik Lundqvist made 31 saves. "I hope our mindset is not to clinch. Its about getting the home advantage," Lundqvist said. "Id rather look ahead than behind me." Ottawa grabbed the lead with 7:15 left in the first off a rush. Clarke McArthur made a pass from the left circle to Stone, who gathered the puck on the inside edge of the right circle and snapped a shot past Lundqvist for his third goal of the season and second in seven games. Less than a minute later, Carl Hagelin had two prime scoring chances near the left post, but was denied by Lehner and then again on the rebound. Rick Nash, who recorded seven shots, then had a breakaway chance, but his in-close stuff attempt was stopped by Lehner with 2:48 left in the first. "We won and Im happy," Lehner said. "(My teammates) were helping me with rebounds, and I saw most pucks. They had some good chances, but I think we played better." Ottawa turned the puck right around and made it 2-0 just 11 seconds later. Zack Smith won a faceoff in the Rangers zone back to Zibanejad, who worked his way into the slot and ripped a shot by Lundqvist for his 16th of the season and second in two nights. Martin St. Louis nearly got the Rangers on the board, but he was stopped on a partial breakaway by defenceman Erik Karlsson, less than a minute after Lundqvist sticked away Chris Neils hard drive. Rangers defenceman John Moore, in his second game following a six-game absence caused by a concussion, fired a hard, rising shot from the left point that sailed into traffic, struck Zuccarello and nestled in the net to make it 2-1 at 5:25. Ottawa restored its two-goal lead 3:02 later after the Rangers couldnt gain control of the puck. Karlsson ripped a drive from the centre of the blue line that disappeared in a huddle of bodies in the crease, but was then poked in by Spezza, who wasnt overly impressed by his 20th goal. "Its nice to get but its pretty insignificant, especially in a year where you dont make the playoffs," he said. New York cut its deficit back to a goal with 8:05 remaining in the second. Zuccarello swung the puck behind the net and around the boards to Marc Staal, who took a shot from above the left circle that Zuccarello deflected in for his 19th goal. The Rangers hurt their comeback chances in the final moments when they retaliated for what appeared to be a late hit by Neil on Staal. New York was short-handed for 2 minutes of the final 2:47. NOTES: Ottawa is 4-7-3 in the second of back-to-back games this season. ... Spezza has eight 20-goal seasons in the NHL. ... New York defenceman Ryan McDonagh (shoulder) missed his second straight game. Ben Revere Jersey . As analysts we do the same thing, so here are some observations from week one. First there were two major upsets. I should say, major upsets in the eyes of the fans and prognosticators. Yunel Escobar Jersey . Ribery terrorized the Schalke defence throughout and put the home side ahead in the 36th minute when he chipped the goalkeeper before stroking the ball into the empty net. The French winger struck again after the interval, combining with Thomas Mueller on the left before firing a deflected shot beyond the helpless Timo Hildebrand in the 55th, as Bayern bounced back from Wednesdays 1-0 loss at FC Basel in the Champions League. http://www.baseballangelslockroom.com/ . Today, he looks at the offensive line. 1. Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (OT, McGill) You Should Know: Over the course of his university career, Duvernay-Tardifs commitments to medical school and the family business frequently limited him to one practice per week, yet he was still the Metras Trophy winner as the Top Lineman in CIS football in 2013. COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Johnny Football and the rest of No. 7 Texas A&Ms offence look like theyre ready for next weeks rematch with top-ranked Alabama. The defence might be a different story. Johnny Manziel threw for 426 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another score in less than three quarters to give Texas A&M to a 65-28 win over Sam Houston State on Saturday night. The Heisman Trophy-winner played about a quarter more than he did last week when he sat out the first half serving a suspension for what the school called an "inadvertent" violation of NCAA rules involving signing autographs. Manziel started and even got to speak to the media after the game. That didnt happen last week, either, when he also got a late benching for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. It was the first time Manziel spoke to the media since SEC media day. He said the support of the Aggies made this difficult period easier to deal with. "The biggest thing thats helped probably is just being around these guys, being in this building and having my teammates and still being able to be around them," he said. "It was easy to block all the stuff out, get off everything, not read anything and just grow with my teammates and continue to get a better bond with them and just spend time with them." Texas A&Ms suspension-depleted defence was burned for several big plays by the Bearkats (1-1), the FCS runner-up the last two seasons. Cornerback DeVante Harris, linebacker Steven Jenkins and defensive end Gavin Stansbury missed the game serving the last of two game suspensions for violating team rules. Cornerback Deshazor Everett was suspended for the first half for a targeting penalty last week. Everett had an interception in the third quarter. "To get those guys all back in the huddle will be a big deal," coach Kevin Sumlin said. "The familiarity and the experience factor of those guys coming back will help our confidence as a defence and the confidence in our coaches to be able to change some schemes and do some different things instead of being very, very vanilla, which weve been the past couple of weeks because of youth." Manziel brushed off the notion that this week is different for the Aggies with the Crimson Tide looming. "It feels like another game," he said. "It feels like Week 3 of the season. Weve got to continue to get better as a team continue to get better on every aspect, offence, defence, special teams. (To) have a full lineup back and aa full roster back of guys who have been out will be nice. Kole Calhoun Jersey. " Sam Houstons Timothy Flanders had 170 yards rushing with two scores and added a TD reception. Texas A&Ms Mike Evans had a career-high 155 yards receiving, Tra Carson ran for 51 with two touchdowns and Ben Malena had 68 yards rushing and a score. Freshman Kenny Hill added 74 yards passing to give A&M a school-record 500 yards passing and the Aggies (2-0) had 38 first downs to tie the school mark. The win was A&Ms eighth straight, which is their longest winning streak since it won 10 in a row in 1998. "Theyre very good," Sam Houston State coach Willie Fritz said. "Thats one of the best offences Ive ever seen. We could not stop them." Manziel threw an interception in the first quarter, but looked sharp otherwise, distributing the ball well as he completed passes to nine different players in the first half. "Weve got some playmakers around Johnny and you see him using everybody," Sumlin said. "Offensively theres more to it than just him." Manziels 426 yards passing were the second-most in his career and he has thrown for more than 4,000 yards in his career. He had to meet with his team the night before last weeks game as a condition of his reinstatement following his suspension. He recounted his talk with the team on Saturday and said his main point was to let them know that "Im here and focused on the season." "Theres so much other stuff that gets played on and is out in the public and we know whats in this building and whats in this room," he said. "Theres a genuine love for each and every guy on this team. So thats what we were focused on and thats the message I was trying to get across." The Bearkats cut the lead to nine points when Flanders gashed through the line for a 68-yard touchdown run on the second play of the third quarter. Carson scored on a 1-yard run before Manziel threw a 10-yard pass to Brandon Williams to extend the lead to 44-21. Another big play -- this one a 75-yard reception by Torrance Williams -- got Sam Houston State within 44-28. Manziel finished his day with a 6-yard touchdown run with about five minutes left in the third quarter. He seemed to get annoyed at a defender who knocked the ball out of his hands after the score. He jawed for a few seconds, but he handled himself much better than he did a week ago when he drew a flag for taunting the Rice defence and was benched late in the fourth quarter.
