Moore said, "Last year we surprised some people going to the Final and coming back from 3-1 down, we came back from 3-1 down this year but we also had high expectations. We won the Presidents' trophy and expected and wanted to finish the job this year and we didn't do it. That is a lot tougher to swallow than thinking that you put your best foot forward and maybe just didn't accomplish it." (Sportsnet)
Moore added that there is a lot of motivation for the Rangers heading into next season.
