Now that Henrik and Daniel Sedin are eight Canucks victories away from capturing the Stanley Cup, it’s worth wondering just how successful brother combinations have been in the NHL’s playoffs.

The Sedins have played 78 playoff games together, the most of any brother combination, passing Brent and Duane Sutter with Game 6 on Monday night. But there’s work to be done to get onto this list:


Brothers who have won the Stanley Cup together

Maurice and Henri Richard, 1955-1960 Canadiens (five Cups)

Brent and Duane Sutter, 1982 and 1983 Islanders

Joe and Jimmy Watson, 1974 and 1975 Flyers

Sylvio and Georges Mantha, 1930 and 1931 Canadiens

Odie and Sprague Cleghorn, 1924 Canadiens

Neil and Mac Colville, 1940 Rangers

Lynn and Muzz Patrick, 1940 Rangers

Bill and Bun Cook, 1928 and 1933 Rangers

Nick and Don Metz, 1945 and 1947 Leafs

Jean and Denis Potvin, 1981 Islanders

Scott and Rob Niedermayer, 2007 Ducks
