The Bruins are one of America’s most storied hockey franchises. The team competed for the Stanley Cup one less time than Detroit, which holds the record in the U.S. With NHL legend Bobby Orr, the team earned two Stanley Cups, in 1970 and 1972. Last year, behind the impressive goaltending of veteran Tim Thomas, the team won its sixth Stanley Cup. The Bruins have been one of the top teams in the NHL over the last decade, missing the playoffs only twice.
