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

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
