The New York Rangers blanked Montreal 1-0 to win the Eastern Conference Finals series 4-2, and advance to the Stanley Cup for the first time since their championship year of 1994. After a lackluster Game 5, Henrik Lundqvist bounced back strong, making 18 saves in the shutout. He now leads the franchise for all-time postseason wins with 42.  It’s been quite a journey for the Rangers, as they struggled early in the season…and just a few weeks back were booed by their own fans at MSG after an embarrassing playoff loss to Pittsburgh. Derek Stepan even had his jaw broken with an illegal hit in Game 3 by former teammate Brandon Prust.

Dominic Moore scored the only goal of the game in the 2nd period. With the victory, Rangers Head Coach Alain Vigneault becomes only the 10th coach in NHL history to lead to two separate teams to the Stanley Cup. The Rangers now wait for either Chicago or Los Angeles in the Western Conference Final. Game 1 of the Stanley Cup will be Wednesday.
