2. May 17, 1983: The fab fourth

The Islanders complete a four-game sweep of the up and coming Oilers and win their fourth straight Stanley Cup. The Isles hold Wayne Gretzky without a goal in the series and their big guns -- Bryan Trottier, John Tonelli and Mike Bossy -- combine for three in a two-minute span of the first period of Game 4. Ken Morrow secures the silverware with an empty-net tally. Bossy finishes with a then-NHL record five game-winning goals in the playoffs, but Billy Smith wins the Conn Smythe Trophy.
