Henrik Lundqvist now stands 4 games away from going from the King of New York, to a deity.
The Rangers are going to the Stanley Cup Finals, on the shoulders of their superstar goalie.
Lundqvist, completing yet another big game shutout, held the Montreal Canadien’s scoreless in the biggest Blueshirts game in 20 years – since that time in 1994 Mark Messier raised the Cup.
Dominic Moore sent in the game-winner, a goal late in the 2nd period, and that was enough to make the Rangers the Eastern Conference Champions.
They will be in Chicago or Los Angeles, Wednesday, depending on who wins the Blackhawks-Kings series, but apologies to the latter, there’s only one royalty celebrating tonight, and he resides in Rangerstown.
