Rangers Top Canadiens To Reach Cup Finals


 

 

 

For the second straight game the Montreal Canadiens faced elimination at the hands of their Original 6 rival New York Rangers.

But unlike in Game 5, tonight the Habs had to accomplish the feat on the road in a sold out Madison Square Garden. And not only while still without starting goaltender Carey Price in their lineup, but with neither Dale Weise nor Alexei Emelin as well.

While their effort was valiant, in the end the results were just not enough. As such it will be the Rangers who will move on to face either the current Champion Chicago Blackhawks or the talented, driven Los Angeles Kings in the Stanley Cup Finals.

Former and current Ranger Dominic Moore, a veteran of nine NHL teams, both opened and closed the scoring himself at 18:07  of the 2nd period.

When the final horn sounded, thanks to Moore the Rangers were on the positive side of a 1-0 score, and as such now find themselves not only in a brand new Finals, but a mere four wins away from their 5th Championship in 88 years.
