MONTREAL - The New York Rangers are hoping tonight to lock up their first appearance in the Stanley Cup Final since 1994.

Despite undergoing surgery for a broken jaw just days ago, Rangers forward Derek Stepan is in the lineup for Game 5 against the Montreal Canadiens.

The Rangers have a 3-1 lead in the series. 

The winner of the series will take on either the Los Angeles Kings or the Chicago Blackhawks.
