Was there any team ever in the NHL history to have the best PP and PK both?
In the same season?

Without looking it up, I'd guess some of the powerhouse Canadiens teams of the Original 6 era. Not only were they legendary good, there were only five other teams.

I don't have time to do the search (and stay employed), but here's a source to look:

You can just slide from year to year...

I have it on 71 as I figured the early 70's bruins or mid 70's habs might be a good start.

'85 Islanders, '76 Islanders, '69 Bruins

I thought Wings might have done so, since they usually had a very good PP and staunch defense. They missed out in '96, when they were first in PK and second only to one of the best power plays of all time ('96 Pens).

The question has been asked in the past and I seem to recall the Islanders (mid 1970s) doing it before and after their Cup wins. Not 100% sure.

Edit: answered above.

I could of sworn the Canucks did this in 2011...

EDIT: they were # 1 in both categories till the last 4 games.
Gave up 6 PP goals in just 21 opportunities.

Were sitting #1 at 86.6% before the final 4 games.

Interesting that the Islanders managed to pull it off in 1985 after their dynasty was over.

Great stat, amazing that only 4 teams have pulled it off.
