Like many in Massachusetts, I who grew up during Bruins mania and remember Bobby Orr being a household name.  Despite the travails since the mid-70s I never forgot the Bs, in fact a copy of this famous pic hangs in my home office:

So for me this Stanley Cup has been a long time coming.
But I'm not old enough to remember the last actual Cup win in '72, just the yearly grinds through the playoff. Then there were the years where they made it back to the finals, only to be disappointed, particularly the two consecutive years of Montreal skating around with the Cup. Come to think of it, those were the years of epic Sox meltdowns as well. Yet Boston fans never rioted...hmmm.
