Montreal’s Stanley Cup Hopes Done
Those who support the Boston Bruins were obviously disappointed to see their preferred squad fall to rival Montreal Canadiens in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. However, some B’s faithful can rest easy knowing that the Habs will no longer have a shot at the Stanley Cup, after the New York Rangers defeated Montreal 1-0 in Game 6 tonight.
The Canadiens won two contests following goaltender Carey Price‘s Game 1 injury, one of the most noteworthy X-factors in stopping the powerful Bruins offense.
With roughly two minutes left in the game, Rangers forward Dominic Moore scored near the crease on a excellent feed from Brian Boyle behind the net, notching the only score needed to down the Canadiens for good.
The Stanley Cup finals pairing will be decided when the Los Angeles Kings and Chicago Blackhawks decide the outcome of the Western Conference semi’s. The Kings will have a 3-2 series advantage, and look to knock out the Blackhawks on Friday at the Staples Center.
