NEW YORK (AP) -- Coach John Tortorella tweaked the New York Rangers' top two lines during practice on Friday ahead of Game 5 of the Eastern Conference playoff series against the Ottawa Senators.

The series is tied 2-2 after New York's 3-2 overtime loss on Wednesday in Ottawa. After a day off, the Rangers returned to practice on Friday at Madison Square Garden.

The Rangers have scored nine goals in four games. So Tortorella had Marian Gaborik skate with Derek Stepan and Artem Anisimov, while Brad Richards centered Ryan Callahan and Brandon Dubinsky during practice.

The Senators announced on Twitter that captain Daniel Alfredsson, who was elbowed in the head in Game 2, will remain home. Prospect Mark Stone will make the trip to New York on Friday night.

Game 5 is Saturday night at the Garden.
