Mike Sullivan's Penguins are coming off back-to-back Eastern Conference titles and back-to-back Stanley Cup championships. The last team to win the Eastern Conference that wasn't Pittsburgh was Tampa Bay in 2015. The Lightning fell to the Blackhawks in six games in the Stanley Cup that year.

In fact, the Penguins ended a streak of six years where the Eastern Conference sent different teams to the Stanley Cup. The last team to win back-to-back Eastern Conference titles before the Penguins did it in 2016 and 2017? Well, naturally, that would be Pittsburgh, which also accomplished the feat in 2008 and 2009.
