In their run to the 2019 Stanley Cup, the Boston Bruins showed the kind of resilience that can only come from incredible depth and chemistry. Veterans like Zdeno Chara, Patrice Bergeron, and Brad Marchand, who had experienced championship success in 2011, were bolstered by a core group of young homegrown talent plus key mid-season acquisitions. They all had a role to play, and coach Bruce Cassidy's team finished the regular season with 107 points, tied for second-best in the NHL. In a gripping postseason featuring goalie Tuukka Rask rising to new levels, the Bruins prevailed over the Toronto Maple Leafs and Columbus Blue Jackets before sweeping the Carolina Hurricanes to reach the Stanley Cup Final. Packed with stunning photography and expert analysis, Made For This takes fans through the Bruins' amazing journey, from the thrilling Winter Classic win over the Chicago Blackhawks to the hard-fought series against the St. Louis Blues. This special commemorative book also includes in-depth profiles of Rask, Chara, Bergeron, Marchand, David Krejci, Charlie Coyle, and more.
