Boston is a town filled with rich sports history, but one of the most significant dates is Nov. 1, 1924 -- the day the Boston Bruins played their first game in franchise history. Boston, which was the first NHL franchise to open for business in the United States, beat Montreal Maroons in Boston 2-1 in its first game ever. The first game that an American based team had ever won as a member of the National Hockey League. Led by head coach Art Ross, the Bruins went 6-24 in their first season in the league, but eventually turned it around, becoming one of the most storied franchises in the history of the NHL. Since their inception in 1924, the Bruins have won six Stanley Cups -- including one in 2011 -- 24 division championships and have over 40 representatives in the Hockey Hall of Fame. The Bruins have called three stadiums home: the Boston Arena, the Boston Garden and the T.D. Garden. The B's have become one of the most beloved sports franchises in the New England region, and have developed one of the strongest, most loyal fan bases in all of the NHL.
