Bruins

The Boston Bruins will soon play for the greatest trophy in sports -- the Stanley Cup.

The B's advanced to the 2019 Stanley Cup Final with a 4-0 win over the Carolina Hurricanes in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference final at PNC Arena on Thursday night. The Bruins also have won seven consecutive playoff games and nine straight conference final games.

Boston has now reached the Stanley Cup Final three times (2011, 2013, 2019) in this decade, a feat only matched by the Chicago Blackhawks (2010, 2013, 2015). 

The Bruins don't yet know their Cup Final opponent. The San Jose Sharks currently lead the St. Louis Blues 2-1 in the Western Conference Final.

The Blues and Bruins squared off in the 1970 Stanley Cup Final, which, of course, ended with Bobby Orr's famous flying goal in overtime of Game 4. The Sharks, led by former B's star Joe Thornton, have made only one Cup Final appearance -- a loss in 2016 to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Bruins last won the Stanley Cup in 2011 when they defeated the Vancouver Canucks in a thrilling seven-game series. Boston lost the 2013 Stanley Cup Final to the Blackhawks in six games. The B's have won six Stanley Cup titles overall, which is tied with the Blackhawks for the fourth-most in NHL history.
