NEW YORK -- On a night where something special was needed, the New York Rangers produced and the Montreal Canadiens didnt. As a consequence, the Rangers are headed to their first Stanley Cup final in 20 years. And the Canadiens are going home, experiencing a dark cocktail of emotions after falling two wins short. Dominic Moore scored late in the second period and Henrik Lundqvist made 18 saves as the Rangers dispatched Montreal 1-0 on Thursday to win the Eastern Conference final four games to two. "We played, in my book, probably our best game of the playoffs," said Rangers coach Alain Vigneault. The Canadiens didnt. New York outshot Montreal 32-18, with the Habs putting just five shots on goal in the third period of a game that was not as close as the score sounds. It was a night and day compared to the Canadiens 7-4 win Tuesday at the Bell Centre. "Its tough because were so close. And were right there," said Montreal defenceman Josh Gorges. "Im a little bit lost for words because Im still trying to process this. Im still stunned. Its tough." Montreal sniper Max Pacioretty was brutally frank in the wake of the loss. "A night like tonight, our backs were against the wall," he said. "Weve been in that position before but there in the third period it almost seemed like -- myself especially -- guys were panicking. We got away from our game." New York really had a go at Montreal in the third, buzzing young goalie Dustin Tokarskis net. The Canadiens did not get a shot on net for the first nine minutes and were back on their heels the entire period. "The third period, I think we played our best period of the playoffs," said Lundqvist. "When it mattered the most, guys really stepped up." While the Canadiens missed passes and made bad decisions, the workmanlike Rangers did the little things right. Their finishing could have been better but didnt need to be given Montreals sputtering offence. "We gave them one chance in the first, four in the second, and nothing in the third," said Vigneault. "Shouldnt have been a 1-0 game, but you have to give their goaltender a lot of credit. He played outstanding." So was Lundqvist, who was pulled in the second period of Game 5 after giving up four goals on 19 shots. He returned to world-class form when he needed to be. The breakthrough came after the Rangers fourth line bottled the Habs up in their own end near the end of the second period. Boyle, left all alone behind the goal, sent a pass through defenceman Francis Bouillon and Moore snapped a shot past Tokarski on the stick side at 18:07 for his third of the playoffs. Defenceman Ryan McDonagh also drew an assist, his 10th of the playoffs. The Rangers last appearance in the final was 1994 when they defeated the Vancouver Canucks in seven games for their first title in 54 years. The Canadiens have not appeared in the final since 1993 when the dispatched the Los Angeles Kings in five games. New York will face either defending champion Chicago or the Kings, both formidable foes, as the final kicks off Wednesday in the West. Vigneault showed faith in his fourth line, starting the game with Moore, Brian Boyle and Derek Dorsett. They repaid him with the key goal on a night that saw the Rangers play with more urgency than the Canadiens before an amped crowd at Madison Square Garden. Tokarski was busier than Lundqvist but the Swede was spectacular in the second period when he made an amazing circus-like save with his arm and then blocker off Thomas Vanek. The save had a degree of difficulty that would have done an Olympic diver proud as the Rangers goalie, losing his stick in the process, corkscrewed his body to stop the close-range shot that deflected off a diving defenceman. Asked what he thought of the play, Vigneault replied: "Same thing you did. Wow." The Rangers scored soon after. Streamers flew through the air as the final whistle blew. The normally calm Lundqvist threw his arms in the air and was mobbed by his teammates. The crowd chanted "We want the Cup." With Brad Richards and Martin St. Louis, who won the Cup together a decade ago with Tampa, leading the decision-making process, the Rangers elected not to touch the Prince of Wales Trophy that goes to the Eastern Conference champion. Its been quite a journey for the Rangers who started the season 3-6 on the road as Madison Square Garden underwent massive renovations. Asked what he would have said if someone had told him in October that his team would go to the Cup final, Vigneault laughed. "In October?" he asked. "Probably I would have said what are you smoking?" Vigneault, in his first year as New Yorks coach, offered a calmer, different message than the fiery John Tortorella. It helped keep the train on track. Montreal also came together under fire. While there may be cause for celebration down the line, the season ends with regrets and questions. "We made some big progress this year," said coach Michel Therrien. "Im proud of this hockey team. We battled hard through the regular season and we battled hard in the playoffs." Pacioretty pointed to the emotional seven-game win over Boston in the series before. "You have success against a team like that, maybe you feel too good about yourself," he said. ""Its hard to pinpoint exactly what went wrong. But that could be one of them. Because we feel like we could have matched up pretty good against the Rangers but obviously didnt put up the effort we needed." Losing the first two games at home proved to be an obstacle Montreal couldnt overcome. "We played our hearts out for two series and then have a little bit of a letdown this series and its too late," Pacioretty lamented. Game 7 would have been Saturday night at the Bell Centre. For Montreal, it was a disappointing end to a surprising playoff run that won fans across the country as Canadas lone team in the post-season came within two wins of making the Stanley Cup final. "Lets push for a game 7!" Prime Minister Stephen Harper tweeted before the game. But the Canadiens, who lost star goalie Carey Price in Game 1, could not rise to the occasion. Therrien said after the game they expected Price would have been ready for Game 1 of the final. But the Habs had only praise for the 24-year-old goalie they call Ticker. "Tokarski played unbelievable, especially tonight," said Pacioretty. "That game could easily have been four or 5-0. They outplayed us tonight and he kept us in the game -- 1-0 is a very misleading score for that game." Tokarski said he was proud of his performance, adding he thought everyone on the team felt the same about their play. "But its still bitter and it sucks right now," he said. Tokarski went to the bench with 1:53 remaining and Lundqvist made a big save with his torso. Montreal used its timeout as Led Zeppelin and then Frank Sinatra rang around the arena. The win was the 42nd of Lundqvists playoff career, moving the 32-year-old past Mike Richter for the franchise lead. Richter backstopped the Blueshirts to the 94 Cup. It was also his ninth playoff shutout, tying him with Richter for the team lead. Lundqvist has a history of bouncing back from off nights. He was 5-2 with a .930 save percentage in games after a Rangers loss this post-season. "Its been tough .. I kept telling myself all day believe in what youre doing," said Lindqvist, looking like he had just walked off the set of "The Great Gatsby" in a charcoal pinstripe suit and plaid tie. Both teams had to adjust their lineups for Game 6. The Rangers were without defenceman John Moore, starting a two-game suspension for a hit on Dale Weise. Ex-Hab Raphael Diaz started in his place in the third defensive pairing. Brandon Prust returned from suspension for Montreal but Weise and defenceman Alexei Emelin were both out. Therrien said Weise, flattened by Moore last time out, was not suffering from a head injury but declined to elaborate. Emelin sat out Game 5 with an unannounced injury. The Rangers came out like men on a mission, outshooting the Habs 4-0 before Montreal captain Brian Gionta was called for goalie interference at 4:15. The Habs were incensed at the call, believing that Gionta was high-sticked on the play. At one point early on two Canadiens lost their sticks at the same time in their own zone. It took Montreal almost eight minutes to get its first shot on goal, a weak effort from Max Pacioretty. While Lundqvist lazed, Tokarski was stopping one shot after another -- some that he knew very little about. His mask took the brunt of one shot. The Canadiens didnt get their second shot until some 15 minutes into the period. But it was dangerous, forcing a good Lundqvist blocker save off Alex Galchenyuk as Montreal cooped the Rangers up in their own end. Montreal was outshot 11-5 in the first period and were lucky not to trail after 20 minutes. Each team had eight shots in the second period. A slashing penalty to Prust with 5:42 remaining in the game did not help the Montreal cause. But it delighted the crowd. The rest before the Cup final will be welcomed by the Rangers. They went seven games in each of the previous two rounds, wasting a 3-2 lead against Philadelphia and rallying from 3-1 down to dispatch the Penguins. Greg Little Jersey . PAUL, Minn.

He made sure of it. West scored 25 points in less than 27 minutes and Roy Hibbert added 14 as the NBAs top team dominated the middle and blew past short-handed Denver 119-80 for its most lopsided win this season. "We played with the right attitude. We came out aggressively. We got off to a good start," West said. "Tonight, we made a concentrated effort to get to the goal. No letdowns." For the Pacers (40-11), it was just another stepping stone victory. They still have the leagues best record, best home mark (25-2) and best defence. They still lead two-time defending champion Miami, now by four games, in the Eastern Conference. They still have not lost back-to-back games since mid-December and have not lost three straight all season. They even padded their league-leading scoring differential. And if Denver coach Brian Shaw is to be believed, they might have the best overall player in the league, too. Shaw spent the previous two seasons working extensively to help George when he served as an Indiana assistant. "Paul George is an All-Star starter, and I said this morning that hes the best two-way player in the game -- and that includes LeBron (James) and everyone else you include," the Nuggets coach said after Indiana ended its five-game skid in this series. The scariest part may be that the Pacers didnt even need George to be at his best Monday night. He finished with 12 points, five rebounds and four assists -- numbers mitigated by the fact the Pacers were so far ahead after three quarters that coach Frank Vogel rested his starters the entire fourth quarter and didnt play any of them more than 28 1/2 minutes. Instead, George was content to let West and Hibbert lead the way. Did they ever. West scored 21 of his points in the first half and finished 11 of 13 from the field, making his last nine shots. Not surprisingly, Indiana outscored Denver 58-36 in the paint. Hibbert finished with 12 rebounds on a night the Pacers had a 56-37 advantage. That, combined with Denvers depleted rosterr, was just too much for the Nuggets (24-26) to overcome.dddddddddddd Denver has now lost three in a row, five of its last seven and has suffered its two most embarrassing defeats of the season in less than a week. It lost 117-90 at New York on Friday. The Nuggets also finished with a season-worst shooting percentage (31.5), far worse than their previous low mark (36.4) against the Clippers on Dec. 21. Only three players reached double figures -- Wilson Chandler with 17, J.J. Hickson with 12 and Jordan Hamilton with 11. Only 10 players dressed for the Nuggets and their top two point guards -- Ty Lawson, the Nuggets top scorer, and backup Nate Robinson -- sat out with injuries. Lawson missed the game with a fractured left rib. Robinson was out with a sprained ACL in his left knee. Randy Foye played reasonably well at an unfamiliar spot, finishing with nine points, 10 assists and only three turnovers, the Nuggets werent the same without their two playmaking ball-handlers. "We were just timid, unsure with everything we did," Shaw said. "Sometimes, youre overmatched. Tonight, we were overmatched." After trailing for the only time all night, 11-10, Indiana quickly took control. West spurred a 22-5 run that gave Indiana a 37-20 lead early in the second quarter. The Pacers then finished the half on a 14-4 run to make it 61-40, and Denver never got closer than 19 over the rest of the night. "At this point in the season, we need every win," George said. "Tonight we were able to come out early and just execute. I thought we played with a lot of energy, we shared the ball, we did a great job defensively. We forced them to take tough shots." Notes: Indianas last win over Denver was a 31-point blowout in November 2010. ... The Pacers also avoided getting swept by Denver, something they had done only three times in the previous eight seasons. ... The Pacers led by 21 points at the half and by 29 after three quarters, both season bests. ... Indianas 58 points in the paint also tied a season high. ...
