Video: Karlsson, Hoffman give Senators their first 1-0 lead of series

Ottawa Senators' Mike Hoffman take a beautiful slap pass from Erik Karlsson and scores the first goal of the game on the New York Rangers

Look, it’s tempting to lavish Erik Karlsson with all the praise as the Ottawa Senators hope to eliminate the New York Rangers in Game 6 tonight.

Plays like the 1-0 goal argue that he creates a ton of advantages for the Senators, yet they still need talented players to seal the deal. In the latest case, Mike Hoffman was that talented player, deflecting a Karlsson shot so that Henrik Lundqvist had no chance of making a save.

Interestingly, this is the first time that the Senators have scored the first goal of the game in this series.
