Islanders, Oilers, Penguins, Red Wings Have Each Repeated as Stanley Cup Champions Since 1980 Championship repeats are rare. In hockey, they're especially difficult because of the mental and physical grind of a Stanley Cup run.

The Bruins have the same nucleus in tact this season, though, and are hoping to join the list of teams that have accomplished the difficult feat. They've had a busy offseason because of last season's triumph, but the B's undoubtedly know that it's back to work in 2011-12.

With this in mind, we asked, "Can you name the last four franchises to win consecutive Stanley Cup titles since 1980?"

The New York Islanders (four straight, 1980-83), the Edmonton Oilers (two repeats, 1984-85, 1987-88), the Pittsburgh Penguins (1991-92) and the Detroit Red Wings (1997-98) have each enjoyed a Stanley Cup repeat since 1980.

For a select amount of Bruins games this season, NESN and The Four's will be teaming up to offer B's fans the chance at winning a $50 gift card to The Four's Restaurant and Sports Bar by simply answering a trivia question found at NESN.com/thefours. Questions will be posted at noon every afternoon on the day of a Bruins home game, unless otherwise noted.
