Dominant Cup Runs

from the Montreal Canadiens,

But when it comes to the calf-roping approach of winning a Stanley Cup, no one does it better than the Canadiens. The two most dominant Cup runs in the modern era each came courtesy of the Habs.
On their march to Stanley Cup No. 15 in 1968, Jean Beliveau and the Canadiens went 12-1, with their only loss coming to the Blackhawks in the semi-finals, sandwiched between sweeps of the Bruins and Blues.
The Habs were at it again in 1976 when they not only won their first of four straight Stanley Cups, but they did so in style. After sweeping the Blackhawks in the opening round, the Canadiens’ only hiccup came in Game 4 against the Islanders in the semifinals, setting the stage for a sweep of the Flyers in the Cup final.
