The Rangers and Canucks squared off at Madison Square Garden for Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals with New York hoping to end a 54-year championship drought. On the strength of Mark Messier's winning goal, the Rangers took home the hardware, and Messier was deemed "Mr. June" by New Yorkers. The championship was the Rangers' fourth in franchise history. Brian Leetch was named series MVP.
