The Stanley Cup

The 1992 Stanley Cup playoffs, the championship of the National Hockey League (NHL) began on April 18, after the conclusion of the 1991–92 NHL season. It was the 100th anniversary of the first awarding of the Stanley Cup, and it was won by the Pittsburgh Penguins, defeating the Chicago Blackhawks.

Playoff seriesEdit

The 1992 playoffs saw history being made. For the first time ever, all four division winners (Detroit, Montreal, NY Rangers, Vancouver) were eliminated in the same round. In the division finals, Detroit was swept by Chicago in four straight. Montreal was also swept in four straight by Boston. The New York Rangers lost in six games to eventual champion Pittsburgh. And, Vancouver also lost in six games to Edmonton. This would be the last time the Hartford Whalers would be in the playoffs before moving to Carolina in 1997. This would be the last time the Minnesota North Stars would make the post season before moving to Dallas in 1993. The Playoffs would return to Minnesota in 2003.

Of the eight division semifinal series, three of them would take place again the following year. Vancouver defeated Winnipeg four games to two. Buffalo swept Boston in four straight. And, St. Louis swept Chicago in four straight.
