A Harvard man made it New York’s night on Sunday in Manhattan.
Former Crimson forward Dominic Moore scored the game-winning goal and then set up a clinching empty-net score in the New York Rangers’ 4-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 5 of an Eastern Conference Stanley Cup Playoff quarterfinal series at Madison Square Garden.Moore staked the Rangers to a 3-0 lead with his goal at 16:20 of the second period, and then set up Brian Boyle's insurance marker with 15 seconds remaining in regulation and New York nursing a 3-2 lead at the time. The Rangers now lead the best-of-seven series, three games to two, and will try to close it out on Tuesday night in Pennsylvania.
Moore, who has 73 goals 130 assists and 203 points in 603 NHL regular-season games with nine different organizations since turning pro in 2003-04, has 9-101—19 points in 49 career playoff games. He collected 64-82—164 points in 128 career games at Harvard from 1999 to 2003, and also led the Crimson to two NCAA Tournament berths and one ECAC Tournament title.
