Not that Bruins fans need any added incentive to see the B’s take down the Chicago Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup finals, but here’s one more: It was with the ’Hawks that the greatest player in hockey history, a fellow by the name of Bobby Orr, ended his career.
That No. 4 would be playing for the Blackhawks remains a painful memory for many an aging Bruins fan. Surely a rolling rally, with the Stanley Cup perched on the lead Duck Boat, will help ease the pain.
Now then, can the Bruins win?

Here are 10 reasons why they can, indeed, bring home 
the Cup:
1. Zdeno Chara: Truth in advertising
In an age when major-league franchises seem always to be rolling out glitzy, high-priced, free-agent acquisitions who turn out to be colossal busts, this is as good a time as any to salute the Bruins for bringing everyone together on that hot July morning in 2006 to announce they had signed Zdeno Chara, the former Ottawa Senators star. All you really need to know about the respect Chara commands is that he was named captain of the Bruins before he ever played a regular-season game with the team, and he has consistently logged more minutes per game this postseason than any player on either team. His dressing down of Sidney Crosby during the Eastern Conference finals: Priceless.
2. Patrice Bergeron’s leadership
He’s not the captain, not a superstar, not a grizzled old-timer. Right? But take a closer look and you’ll see that Bergeron delivers in all three of those areas. His leadership by example means that younger players look up to him, and, while he’s not a “superstar” in the way we use that word, he delivers sparkling two-way play that is lacking with some so-called superstars. Not for nothing was Bergeron last year’s recipient of the Selke Trophy, awarded to the league’s top defensive forward, and he is a finalist again. Bergeron’s mastery of the faceoff circle completes the package. Oh, one more thing: He’s not a grizzled old-timer the way, say, Jaromir Jagr is, but he’s a 27-year-old who broke into the league 10 years ago. He knows his way around the rinks.
