Rangers down Habs, head to Stanley Cup final for first time in 20 years

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The New York Rangers have advanced to the Stanley Cup final.

Dominic Moore scored to lead the Rangers to a 1-0 victory over the Montreal Canadiens and a 4-2 series win in the Eastern Conference final.

The Rangers will play for the Cup for the first time since winning it in 1994.

Moore broke the scoreless stalemate 18:07 into the second period.

He was in front of the net open for a shot when Brian Boyle fed him the puck from behind Montreal goaltender Dustin Tokarski.

Tokarski finished with 31 saves while a listless Canadiens' offence fired just 18 shots at New York's Henrik Lundqvist.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
