The Bruins were anxious to see their championship rings, and on Tuesday night the secret was revealed. The team was all smiles after receiving their rings, which Milan Lucic said were like little individual trophies.
But the Bruins' rings are just the latest component of what is becoming quite the jewelry collection for Boston sports teams. With seven championships in nine years, Boston has truly become title town.
The Patriots kicked off the decade of dominance with their victory in Super Bowl XXXVI. They later added to their collection with wins in Super Bowl XXXVIII and Super Bowl XXXIX.
The Red Sox, meanwhile, broke an 86-year-old curse in 2004, but found that one championship simply wasn't enough. They played their way back to the Fall Classic in 2007, where they swept the Rockies en route to earning their second ring in four seasons.
Danny Ainge saw all of this unfold and decided it was time to roll the dice on a pair of veterans and brought Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett to town for the 2007-08 season. The C's took care of business in the Big Three's first year, defeating the Lakers in the 2008 NBA Finals.
Then came the Bruins. After watching their Boston brethren enjoy their time in the spotlight, they decided it was time to join the party. The Bruins defeated the Canucks in seven games in the Stanley Cup Final after a hard-fought run to the top.
So how do the Bruins' rings stack up?
