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).
