The Boston Bruins and the Chicago Blackhawks are Members of the "Original Six"
It has been 34 seasons since two members of the Original Six have squared off in a Stanley Cup Final, but that streak will come to an end Wednesday night when the Boston Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks take the ice at the United Center. The two have met each other six times in playoff matchups before, the first of which was during the 1926-27 season, and their most recent encounter was a Bruins' sweep of the Hawks in the 1978 quarterfinals. If history is any indication, then the Bruins already have an edge going into this series, they've taken five of the six postseason matchups between the two squads. The underdog Kings were a nice story last year, but this is good old fashioned hockey right here.
