— With the Vancouver Canucks boasting the Sedin twins, Henrik and Daniel, we take a look at other NHL brother acts who have won the Stanley Cup together.
Rob and Scott Niedermayer
2006-07 Anaheim Ducks
Scott captained the Ducks and won the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP. Rob formed a solid checking line with Sammy Pahlsson and Travis Moen which scored three winning goals in the finals against Ottawa.
Brent and Duane Sutter
1981-82, '82-'83 New York Islanders
One of only three brother acts to win back-to-back Cup titles, Duane scored a winner and set up another in the Isles' 1983 win over Edmonton. Brent scored three times in that series win.
Jimmy and Joe Watson
1973-74, '74-'75 Philadelphia Flyers
The first Cup final winning brother combo in which both were defensemen, Joe was an original Flyer selected during the 1967 expansion draft who stayed with the team to see the glory years. Jimmy assisted on Bob Kelly's Cup winner against Buffalo in 1975.
Frank and Peter Mahovlich
1970-71, '72-'73 Montreal Canadiens
With Montreal down 3-2 in the third period of Game 6 of the 1971 finals against Chicago and facing elimination, Frank netted the tying goal, then Pete tallied the winner. Frank (eight points) and Pete (seven) finished 1-2 in scoring in that final, and the two combined for 19 points in the 1973 finals, as the Habs again got the better of the Hawks.
Earl and Murray Balfour
1960-61 Chicago Blackhawks
Chicago won its first Cup since 1938 thanks in big part to Murray, who had two assists in the Blackhawks' Game 1 win and scored twice in their Game 5 victory as Chicago beat Detroit in six games.
Henri and Maurice Richard
1956-60 Montreal Canadiens
The gold standard of silver mug-winning brother acts, the Rocket and the Pocket Rocket won five successive Cups together during Henri's first five NHL seasons. Henri led the Habs with eight points during their 1960 finals sweep of Toronto. Maurice scored the Cup winner against Detroit in 1956.
Don and Nick Metz
1941-42, '44-'45, '46-'47, '47-'48 Toronto Maple Leafs
Second only to the Richards in Cups won by sibling teammates, the Metz brothers sparked Toronto's rally from a 3-0 deficit to beat Detroit in a seven-game 1942 finals. Nick scored the winner in Game 4, the brothers combined for eight points in Game 5 and Don netted the Game 6 winner.
Mac and Neil Colville; Lynn and Muzz Patrick
1939-40 New York Rangers
One of two Cup winners to boast tandem brother acts, Neil Colville set up Muzz Patrick for the Game 4 winner, then Neil scored to begin a rally from a 2-0 deficit for a 3-2 Game 6 winner and a series triumph over Toronto.
Bill and Bun Cook
1927-28, '32-'33 New York Rangers
Bill scored the only goal of the game for the Cup winner in Game 4 of the 1933 finals against Toronto. He set up Frank Boucher for the Cup winner against the Montreal Maroons in 1928.
Georges and Sylvio Mantha
1929-30, '30-'31 Montreal Canadiens
Sylvio captained the Habs to back-to-back Cup wins, scoring twice in the two-game sweep of Boston in 1930. Georges netted two goals and an assist in the 1931 final against Chicago.
Billy and Bobby Boucher; Odie and Sprague Cleghorn
1923-24 Montreal Canadiens
Billy led the Habs with five goals and outscored brother Frank 2-1 as Montreal beat Vancouver by that score. Sprague (2-1-3) and Odie (0-2-2) were also key contributors.
