Best Combined Playoff Record for SC Finalists?

Seeing the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers have a combined 19-0 playoff record and destined to meet each other in the NBA Finals made me think, which two SCF teams had the best combined record going into the final round? I only looked at post 2005 lockout teams, but seems that the 2008 Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings have the best record at a combined 24-6 (Pittsburgh 12-2 and Detroit 12-4).

Thought it might be 1992 (both teams had 11-game winning streaks) but Pittsburgh did drop 3 of their first 4.

1995 ties 2008 (Devils 12-4, Red Wings 12-2).

There has to be a better one

Edmonton / Boston also 24-6 in 1988 (Edm 12-2, Bos 12-4).

It's hard prior to 1987, because of one less win in the first round, but Edmonton / Philly were 22-5 in 1985.

I see Bruins as 12-6 heading into the finals in 1988.
By the way, that was the first year I checked after 1995

Pittsburgh/Detroit both looked like they were both going to have 12-2 records, but Dallas somehow won games 4 AND 5 against that ridiculously awesome Detroit team.

1997 always felt like an NBA playoffs to me. Like everybody was waiting for Detroit and Philly in the finals, and all the other rounds were just kinda there.

But upon looking it up, it doesn't match some others.

12-5 for Detroit, 12-3 for Philly.

Are we sure about that?

Lot of people wrote off Detroit after their 1996 playoff disaster.

Most thought Colorado was the emerging powerhouse at the time- and don't forget about Dallas who actually had a better record than Detroit.

In the East- are we sure Philly was the conference favorite at the time over, say New Jersey?

Colorado was #1 in the Western Conference, and the defending Stanley Cup Champions. The Wings-Avalanche series was for the Stanley Cup. THe Flyers series was an afterthought.

Yeah, in no way, shape, or form was Detroit expected to walk to the Finals in 97. Until they knocked out Colorado in the playoffs, there was always going to be some doubt. And like mentioned, Dallas finished 10 pts ahead of them in the standings as well.

Now 2001-2002 on the other hand, that was the season that everybody and their mother anticipated the Detroit vs Colorado matchup to be for the Cup and it lived it up to it.
