A Canadian team won't be winning the Stanley Cup this season.

The Montreal Canadiens, the only Canadian team to make this year's playoffs, were eliminated Thursday night when they lost 1-0 to the New York Rangers in Game 6 of their Eastern Conference final.

Although the game was played in New York, the Bell Centre in Montreal was packed once again as the decisive matchup was broadcast on giant screens for a sold-out crowd.

The Habs were the last Canadian team to win the Stanley Cup when they defeated the Los Angeles Kings in 1993.

The Rangers, who last won the trophy in 1994, will play either the Kings or the Chicago Blackhawks in the final.

Moore broke the scoreless stalemate 18:07 into the second period. He was in front of the net open for a shot when Brian Boyle fed him the puck from behind Montreal goaltender Dustin Tokarski. Tokarski finished with 31 saves while a listless Canadiens' offence fired just 18 shots at New York's Henrik Lundqvist.
