1992 Norris Division Semi-Finals (Blackhawks Win 4-2)

When you say 1992 and the Chicago Blackhawks most fans think of the only Stanley Cup Final appearance between 1973 and 2010.  The run to the Stanley Cup Final started with a series against the St. Louis Blues.  The Blues took a 2-1 series lead with an overtime win, but it was all Jeremy Roenick, Chris Chelios and Eddie Belfour thereafter and the Hawks wouldn’t lose another game in the playoffs until Game #1 in the Stanley Cup Final.

1993 Norris Division Semi-Finals (St. Louis Wins 4-0)

The Hawks started their march to repeat as Conference Champ, but the march never took off as they Hawks got swept by the Blues, and the end of an era was creeping closer and closer with this loss.  Granted the Hawks made it to the Conference Finals in 95, but the end was coming.  The only highlight I remember from this series is Eddie Belfour losing his mind when the Blues scored in overtime in Game #4 for the sweep.

2002 Western Conference Semi-Finals (Blues Win 4-1)

This was the only playoff game for the Chicago Blackhawks from 1997 until 2009, and the St. Louis Blues made quick work of the Blackhawks.  The Blues were a good team with Joel Quenneville behind the bench. The Blackhawks were led by Michael Nylander and his 3 total points so the team didn’t give much help to goalie Jocelyn Thibault.  It was a quick exit during the middle of the dark ages in Chicago Blackhawks history.
