On Monday, June 1st, 1992, the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Chicago Blackhawks at Chicago Stadium in Chicago to win the 79th Stanley Cup Finals four games to none. It was the second Stanley Cup championship for the Penguins franchise, and the sixth that was won in Illinois. These are the top five players that I felt most stood out during the series.
