The Stanley Cup Championship trophy is awarded to the winner of the National Hockey League playoffs. The trophy was first awarded in 1893 and is the oldest trophy currently still being awarded to a professional athletic team. The tournament takes place in an elimination-style that consists of four rounds, each made up of seven games. Based on points from the regular season, eight teams qualify from each of the two conferences. The finals pit the two conference champions against one another for the cup.
Notable champions include the Boston Bruins, who have won six Stanley Cup titles. The team was led by the greatest defenseman in the league’s history, Bobby Orr and Phil Esposito. Another notable team, winning a total of 24 titles, the Montreal Canadians have established themselves as the most prolific team to win the Stanley Cup.
