The 6 Stanley Cup banners in Bruins history

The Bruins will be trying to earn the seventh championship in team history when they meet the Blackhawks in the 2013 Stanley Cup Final. Take a look back at the previous titles that enabled the Bruins to hang banners above their home ice:

1929

  • Bruins def. Rangers, 2-0

  • Star: Cecil “Tiny” Thompson, G

  • Notable: The Bruins won Game 1 at home, 2-0, and Game 2 on the road, 2-1, with rookie Thompson in net. Game 1’s shutout was the third by a rookie in a Stanley Cup Final.


1939

  • Bruins def. Maple Leafs, 4-1

  • Star: Frank Brimsek, G

  • Notable: In a low-scoring Stanley Cup Final, Brimsek held the Maple Leafs to just six goals. The only Bruin loss was in overtime, 3-2, at Boston Garden.

1941

  • Bruins def. Red Wings, 4-0

  • Star: Milt Schmidt, C

  • Notable: In the third best-of-seven series ever played in a Stanley Cup Final, the Bruins became the first to win the Cup in four straight games.

1970

  • Bruins def. Blues, 4-0

  • Star: Bobby Orr, D

  • Notable: While scoring the Cup-winning goal in overtime, Orr was tripped by Blues defender Noel Picard and raised his arms in celebration, regarded as the most famous goal in NHL history.

1972

  • Bruins def. Rangers, 4-2

  • Star: Bobby Orr, D

  • Notable: Orr led the way with four goals and four assists. After Boston won the first two games, the teams traded wins until Boston clinched in Game 6. The Bruins didn’t win again for 39 seasons.

2011

  • Bruins def. Canucks, 4-3

  • Star: Tim Thomas, G

  • Notable: The Bruins came back from a 3-2 deficit in a series marked by physical play. Thomas held the vaunted Vancouver offense to just eight goals, registering a shutout in Game 7.
