Final 2015-16: Pens Mightier Than Sharks

The Pittsburgh Penguins shook off a rough start to the season and rode the surge all the way to their fourth Stanley Cup in franchise history. The Penguins took care of the San Jose Sharks in six games during the finals with Kris Letang tallying the series winner of a 3-1 victory in Game 6.  Symbolic of the Penguins comeback was the play of Sidney Crosby, who earned the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP after seven years of health problems and early postseason exits. Here are the final Dunkel Index NHL rankings for the 2015-16 season.

Final 2014-15: Lightning Bottled

A stifling defense, led by Conn Smythe winner Duncan Keith, helped Chicago to its third Stanley Cup in six years with a 4-2 series win over the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Blackhawks clinched the title at home for the first time since 1938 with a 2-0 shutout from goalie Corey Crawford. Keith scored the series-winner and became the first defenseman to do so and win the Conn Smythe since Bobby Orr in 1970 and 1972. Here are the final Dunkel Index NHL rankings for the 2014-15 season.

Final 2007-08: Detroit Takes Cup Again

The Red Wings became the first team since 2002 (when Detroit also did it) to win the President’s Cup and Stanley Cup in the same season as the Red Wings dispatched Pittsburgh in six games to claim their fourth Cup since 1997.  Henrik Zetterberg scored what proved to be the game-winner and earned the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP.  The Penguins had a great run to get to the Finals, but couldn’t avoid their first loss there after winning in 1991 and ’92.  Here are the complete Dunkel Index NHL rankings for the 2007-08 season.

Final 2006-07: Ducks Power Past Senators

Anaheim came into the Stanley Cup with a reputation as being a physical team.  The Ducks lived up to that reputation, even earning a one-game suspension for defenseman Chris Pronger for a blow to the head in Game Three.  But Anaheim’s physical play eventually overwhelmed Ottawa as the Ducks hammered the Senators in Game Five (6-2) to claim its first championship and the first Stanley Cup ever in California.  Scott Niedermayer claimed the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP, but goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere (13-4 record; 1.97 GAA) and Ryan Getzlaf (team-leading 17 points) were just as instrumental in the team’s run.  Here are the complete Dunkel Index NHL rankings for the 2006-07 season.
