Overview

From their first Stanley Cup win in 1929 to their days as the Big Bad Bruins in the '70s, to today's youth movement with young stars such as Joe Thornton, Anson Carter, and Sergei Samsonov, the Boston Bruins have remained one of hockey's (and sport's) greatest teams.

Brian McFarlane, Canada's favorite hockey chronicler, invites readers to relive many of their treasured memories of the Bruins with stories of Eddie Shore, Phil Esposito, Milt Schmidt, Don Cherry, Derek Sanderson, Ray Bourque, and Number Four, Bobby Orr.

Read about the superstar who almost didn't make the NHL, the coach who preached his views on sex to the players' wives, and the flamboyant young Bruin who dated a grandmother.
