MONTREAL - If there is one NHL record that will likely never be broken, it's the 11 Stanley Cups won by Henri Richard.

Richard and the Boston Celtics' Bill Russell are the professional athletes who have won the most team sport championships in North America.

The Canadiens great raised his 11th and final Stanley Cup 44 years ago to the day, on May 10, 1973. The Habs dropped the Chicago Blackhawks in six games, winning the deciding game by a score of 6-4 on the road.

The Pocket Rocket was also a member of the Canadiens teams that won five straight Cups from 1956-1960. His other Cup wins came in 1965, 1966, 1968, 1969 and 1971.
