The Eastern Conference final is set. The New York Rangers will take on the New Jersey Devils for the Prince of Wales Trophy.

The New Jersey Devils enter the series as the No. 6 seed, although they finished tied with the Bruins with 102 points, fourth most in the Eastern Conference.

The New York Rangers, the No. 1 seed, have won back-to-back series in seven games, eliminating both the Senators and Capitals.

The Rangers and Devils last met in the Eastern Conference final in 1994. It took seven games, but the Rangers won on Stephane Matteau’s goal in double overtime. They would go on to win the Stanley Cup over the Vancouver Canucks, ending a 54-year drought.

We will soon find out if the Rangers can repeat what the 1994 team accomplished. With that said, here is a preview of the 2012 Eastern Conference final.
