The New York Rangers eliminated the Montreal Canadiens in six games to advance to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in 20 years. In 1994, the Rangers defeated the Vancouver Canucks in seven games to bring the Stanley Cup to the Big Apple for the first time in 54 years.

The Rangers will face the winner of the Western Conference Final, which is tied 3-3 between the Los Angeles Kings, who won the Cup in 2012 and the 2013 champion Chicago Blackhawks. Based on the Rangers' performance against each team during the regular season, they may be rooting for the Blackhawks in Game 7 at United Center on Sunday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS).

Rangers glad for rest, but remain focused on Cup

Saturday, 05.31.2014 / 1:40 AM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

NEW YORK -- The New York Rangers were taking the time to appreciate their series-clinching 1-0 victory against the Montreal Canadiens in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final. But with the franchise's first trip to the Stanley Cup Final in 20 years secured, players and coaches alike acknowledged Thursday that their work was far from done.

The Rangers will have four days to figure out exactly how they plan to do that. For now, they'll have to wait to see whether they'll be game-planning to face the Los Angeles Kings or the Chicago Blackhawks, who will meet in Game 7 of the Western Conference Final on Sunday at United Center (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS). The best-of-7 series is tied 3-3. The winner of that series will host the Rangers in Game 1 of the Final on Wednesday.

With four more wins, the Rangers will bring the Stanley Cup back to New York for the first time since Mark Messier hoisted the trophy in 1994, ending a drought that stretched back to 1940. This year's group is eager to bring the Cup back to New York, which has seen the buzz about the team grow as the Rangers have progressed through the postseason.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
