STAMFORD, Conn. – May 29, 2014 – Henrik Lundqvist and the New York Rangers will look to advance to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in 20 years tonight with a Game 6 win over P.K Subban and the Montreal Canadiens at 8 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

The Canadiens fought off elimination on Tuesday night with a wild 7-4 win in Game 5 in Montreal to send the series back to New York. Lundqvist was pulled midway through the second period, after allowing four goals to spot Montreal a 4-1 lead, but the Rangers responded with three quick tallies to knot the score at four. The Canadiens eventually pulled away with three straight goals from Rene Bourque to force tonight’s Game 6 showdown.
A Game 6 victory tonight sends the Rangers to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 1994, when they defeated the Vancouver Canucks in seven games for their first title in 54 years. The Canadiens are looking to force a Game 7 on Saturday in Montreal, and have not appeared in a Stanley Cup Final since 1993, when the defeated the Los Angeles Kings in five games.
Emmy Award-winning play-by-play voice Mike ‘Doc’ Emrick, analyst Eddie Olczyk and Emmy Award-winning “Inside the Glass” analyst Pierre McGuire will have the call from Madison Square Garden in New York.
