How To Win At Atlantic Division Betting
The Atlantic Division can boast of a feat that no other NHL division can lay claim to. Every member of the division has played in the Stanley Cup final, the vast majority of which having won the Stanley Cup.
The Montreal Canadiens own a record 24 Stanley Cup titles and actually won the trophy for the first time in 1915-16, two seasons prior to the birth of the NHL. The Toronto Maple Leafs, as the Arenas, were the first NHL team to win the Stanley Cup. The Boston Bruins became the first American-based NHL team to play in a Cup final series in 1926-27 and two years later, defeated the New York Rangers to capture the first all-American Stanley Cup final round.
In 1935-36 and 1936-37, the Detroit Red Wings were the first American-based NHL club to capture consecutive Stanley Cup crowns. And in 2003-04, the Tampa Bay Lightning were the first NHL team from Florida to win the Stanley Cup.
The Buffalo Sabres (1974-75, 1998-99), Florida Panthers (1995-96) and the current Ottawa Senators (2006-07) have played in a Cup final series but have yet to earn the right to lift Lord Stanley's mug aloft.
