In the past decade, Boston's professional sports teams have shown the knack for making history in their respective league.
First, in 2004, the Boston Red Sox mounted an epic comeback against the New York Yankees after being down 3-0 in the ALCS. They went on to win the World Series.
Then, in 2007, the New England Patriots enjoyed a perfect regular season by going 16-0 and almost completed a 19-0 if not for a loss to the New York Giants in the Super Bowl.
So, why can't the Bruins become the next team to repeat as Stanley Cup Champions and the first since the Detroit Red Wings in 1997 and 1998?
Sure, the odds aren't in their favor as there are some great teams in the NHL, but the Bruins have as good a chance as anybody at winning the Stanley Cup in 2012. Don't be surprised if they end up doing it.
