The NHL's Northeast Division was formed in 1993 as part of the Eastern Conference in a league realignment, the predecessor of which was the Adams Division. Although none of its members won the Stanley Cup following the realignment until the Boston Bruins' title in 2011, its members account for a combined 43 Stanley Cup championships (24 by Montreal, 13 by Toronto and 6 by Boston), which is the most championships of any division in the NHL. No team has won the Northeast Division in consecutive seasons.
