The top seeded New York Rangers staved off elimination with back-to-back wins in the first round, included the first of two Game 7 victories, but John Torteralla’s blue shirts didn’t have enough to get through the New Jersey Devils.

The Devils closed out the Rangers in six games, with the clincher coming on an overtime stuff off the stick of Adam Henrique, as New Jersey advances to the Stanley Cup Finals, where the eighth seeded Los Angeles Kings await.

New York again found itself in an early hole, trailing 2-0 in the first, with Ryan Carter and Ilya Kovalchuk each beating Henrik Lundqvist.

The Rangers clawed back with tallies from Ruslan Fedotenko and Ryan Callahan in the second. But just 1:03 into overtime, Lundqvist made a save but couldn’t control the puck. It was slapped between his legs and sat in the crease momentarily before Henrique jammed it over the line as the Prudential Center erupted in celebration with New Jersey heading back to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time since 2003.

Video from NHL.com:

Lundqvist finished with 26 saves. The Devils’ Martin Brodeur, who has played outstanding in goal throughout the playoffs, made 33 saves.

The Devils and Kings play Game 1 in New Jersey on Wednesday night.
