Dominic Moore scored with just under two minutes remaining in the second period and Henrik Lundqvist registered a playoff shutout as the Rangers closed out the Eastern Conference Finals with a 1-0 Game 6 win at Madison Square Garden on Thursday.

It’s New York’s first trip back to the finals since they they claimed the Cup in 2004.

Highlight: Dominic Moore’s Goal

The Rangers’ defense stifled Montreal’s scoring opportunities throughout the night with solid puck control. They also seemingly outskated the Habs to every loose puck, holding the visitors to just 18 shots on goal, none of which could get by Lundqvist, who responded well after allowing four goals and getting yanked in Game 5.

He also became the Blueshirts’ all-time leader in postseason wins with his 42nd.

Montreal’s young net-minder, Dustin Tokarski – filling in for the injured Carey Price – was almost as masterful in the series finale, stopping 31 shots.

In the Western Conference, the L.A. Kings have at 3-2 series adantage on the Chicago Blackhawks in their best of seven series. Game 6 is Friday night in Los Angeles.
