NEW YORK -- With the Rangers looking to close out the Eastern Conference final against the Montreal Canadiens, the music wafting out of the New York locker-room area at Madison Square Garden was appropriate.
On the morning of Game 6, "Closing Time" by Semisonic was played at volume.
A win and the Rangers can advance to the Stanley Cup final for the first time in 20 years.
A loss and New York has to go back to the Bell Centre for a deciding game.
"No Canada" was the headline on the back page of the New York Daily News. The kicker read "Rangers: We can't let series go back to Montreal."
The New York Post headline was "Code Blue."
