Franchise history
In 1924, at the convincing of Boston grocery magnate Charles Adams' team, Boston Bruins could only finish at last spot in the hockey league in their inaugurating season. Regardless of their performance, they were able to get overwhelming support from their die-hard fans. Later on, the league was expanded to many American cities within a few years.

In the third season in 1926-27, the Bruins were able to reach in Stanley Cup final, led by defenseman Eddie Shore who joined the NHL from the defunct Western Hockey League). The season after that (1929-1930), the Bruins would post the best regular-season winning percentage in NHL history (an astonishing .875) but would lose to the Montreal Canadiens in the finals.
