Retro Penguins Clip: Game Four, 1992 Patrick Division Final

The NHL's new realignment plan brings memories of the old Patrick Division flooding back and that brings us to this clip of the 1992 Patrick Division Final:


With Mario Lemieux out of action following an Adam Graves slash, the Penguins entered game four of the series trailing the Rangers 2-1. A loss here likely would have spelled the beginning of the end of the Penguins' playoff run. Mark Messier had two goals for the Rangers, but Ron Francis countered with a hat trick which included the game-winner in overtime.

The Penguins would not lose another playoff game that season. The 11 game winning streak that started this night would end with the Pittsburgh Penguins hoisting their second straight Stanley Cup.
