May 17, 1983: The New York Islanders beat the Edmonton Oilers, 4-2, to complete a sweep for the Stanley Cup, the team's fourth consecutive championship.

Islanders goaltender Billy Smith won the Conn Smythe Trophy after holding the Oilers, who had a young Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier, to just six goals.

Since then, no team has won more than two titles in a row: Penguins, 1991 and 1992. Red Wings 1997 and 1998.
