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

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
