The 128-page paperback book includes Boston Globe print content and photography, and was compiled by the award-winning sports staff of The Boston Globe -- Kevin Paul Dupont, Dan Shaughnessy, John Powers, Bob Ryan, Fluto Shinzawa, and more. The book takes readers down memory lane with a look at the team's glory days, from Stanley Cup wins in 1929 and 1939, to stories of the legendary Bobby Orr, to hockey in the dark during the Great Blackout of 1988, and the longstanding rivalry with the Canadiens.
"The Globe's sports staff has access and insight that can't be beat. No one knows more about this team, its legacy, and what a championship means to Boston," said Janice Page, the editor of the book. "This book provides an opportunity for the region's fans to learn new things about the Bruins and celebrate everything they already know and love about their team."
The 2010-2011 team and season are chronicled, with a close-up look at the roster, notable moments from every game of the regular season, and a roundup of the highs and lows of the Eastern Conference playoffs. Profiles of all the personalities that make going to a Bruins game an experience are also featured. Close-up looks at goalie Tim Thomas, owner Jeremy Jacobs, adviser and former coach Harry Sinden, and even National Anthem singer Rene Rancourt are all part of the book.
"The book is a testament to the fact that whether you're a diehard hockey aficionado or a more casual fan, it's likely you won't forget this historic season," said Boston Globe sports editor Joe Sullivan.
Nostalgic black-and-white and stunning color photos from Globe photographers throughout the years make history come to life, so that fans can relive the inspiring moments of their favorite team and players. And, the book also takes a look at the Stanley Cup trophy itself and how it is made.
