NEW YORK — The Prince of Wales Trophy sat on the pedestal Thursday night at Madison Square Garden, ready for the captain of the New York Rangers. For the first time in 20 years – for the first time since the days of Mark Messier, Brian Leetch and Mike Richter – the Rangers had won their conference and earned a chance to play for the Stanley Cup.
