The Stanley Cup is the championship trophy, awarded annually to the winner of the final, after a series of competitions from the National Hockey League. Montreal Canadiens has won the Stanley Cup 23 times, since the league was formed, 10 times more than the second place of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
From 1951 to 1960, every year Montreal entered the Stanley Cup final, including five consecutive championships, from 56 to 60. Afterwards, the Canadiens won more than 10 times in the years 65 to 79. , and 2 more in 86 and 93
At the time, winning the Stanley Cup was more difficult. The New York Islanders won four consecutive trophies in the years ‘80, ‘81, ‘82 and ‘83. The Edmonton Oilers also won five trophies between 84 and 90, but since then the Detroit Red Wings have only won the championship for two consecutive years 97 and ‘98
Currently, only two teams are considered the most likely to win the Stanley Cup, the Los Angeles King and the Chicago Blackhawks. In the last three seasons, the Kings have won two cups, while the Chicago team won two in 2010 and 2013.
