The Boston Bruins made the NHL playoffs in the 2016-17 season. However they lost to the Ottawa Senators 4-2. The Bruins had a record of 44-31-7. The Bruins are looking to get back to the NHL playoffs in the 2017-18 NHL season and make a run at the Stanley Cup, which they last won in 2011.
Founded in 1924, the Boston Bruins became a franchise known as part of the “Original Six”. The NHL was created in the 1920’s but when the Great Depression hit, the league was dwindled to six teams with the Boston Bruins being one of them. The league remained that way until the late 60’s. The Bruins currently play their home game at the TD Garden in Boston, MA. Bruins fans regularly sell out the arena with fans buying tickets years in advance.
Over their existence the Bruins have won six Stanley Cups (1928–29, 1938–39, 1940–41, 1969–70, 1971–72, 2010–11) and continue to field a talented roster year after year.
Bruins fans have witnessed NHL greats over the years, but perhaps no one better than the great Bobby Orr. Orr played for the Bruins from 1966 to 1976. During those years, the team won two of their six Stanley Cups titles.
