08:16 AM ET 04.18 | Let's not forget the 1992-93 Penguins, which with Mario Lemieux, Ron Francis, Jaromir Jagr and Tom Barrasso was supposed to win a third Cup. The wound still oozes all of these years later. But here's what's amazing: The 2011-12 Penguins are looking at a much worse fate. Six days ago, they were the heavy favorites to win the Cup, a 4-to-1 betting choice when the next highest-rated teams were 11-to-2. Sidney Crosby and Kris Letang were back healthy and roaring to go. Evgeni Malkin and Marc-Andre Fleury were the team's best players all season and the others were ready to follow their lead in the playoffs. No team is unbeatable, but this Penguins team appeared to be close.
