A Brief History
One of the “Original Six” NHL franchises, the Bruins are loaded with tradition, banners and hardware. Since the franchise was founded in 1924 by grocery magnate and sports pioneer Charles Adams, the Bruins have won 24 Division Championships and 6 Stanley Cups.
The post-expansion history of the Boston Bruins is marked by three distinct periods of success; the Bobby Orr era in the late 60s through the 70s that yielded two Stanley Cups, the Ray Borque / Cam Neely-led B’s of the late 80s that lost twice to the Edmonton Oilers in the Finals, and the current era.
In 2011, the Bruins ended a four-decade Stanley Cup drought when they defeated the Vancouver Canucks. Nursing a hangover the following season, the Bruins lost to the Washington Capitals in the first round of the playoffs.
Last year, in Game 6 of one of the most compelling Stanley Cup Finals matchups of the last twenty years, the Bruins, just 76 seconds away from forcing Game 7, allowed the Chicago Blackhawks to score two heartbreaking goals and skate off with the trophy on Boston’s home ice.
Reloaded for 2013-14
Rather than stand pat with a championship-caliber team, ever-aggressive GM Peter Chiarelli dealt Tyler Seguin to the Dallas Stars for Loui Erikkson and signed Jarome Iginla to replace Nathan Horton. Built around a core of stars including Milan Lucic and David Krejci, the Bruins locked up Patrice Bergeron and star goaltender Tuuka Rask for the long term.
Zdeno Chara is still a massive presence both on and off the ice. Entering the twilight of his career, you better believe the Bruins will do whatever it takes to get their captain another shot at a second Stanley Cup.
Hockey at the Garden
The TD Garden, which the Bruins share with the Boston Celtics (as they did in the old Boston Garden), is a veritable shrine to the history of American sports. The legacies of Orr, Esposito and Borque share the rafters with Russell, Bird, Cousy, et al. Get to TD Garden with guaranteed savings from ScoreBig.com.
