Bruins history in the conference finals
1992: Penguins sweep Bruins
The 1992 Bruins finished nine points behind the Canadiens in the Adams Division entering the playoffs but ended up sweeping them in the Division Finals. The Bruins also fought through a tough semifinal series to beat the Sabres in seven games.
The Bruins made their third straight conference final and were promptly swept by the Penguins, who were led by league points leader Mario Lemieux. It was the second straight year that the Penguins knocked the Bruins out of the playoffs and the third straight time that the two met in the conference finals. Only Game 1 was close, with the Pens winning 4-3. In Games 2 through 4, the Bruins were outscored 15 to 4. Pittsburgh would not lose again the rest of the way, sweeping the Chicago Blackhawks for the Stanley Cup.
