Winning back-to-back Stanley Cups isn't cool. You know what's cool? Three straight Stanley Cups.

The Tampa Bay Lightning became the eighth franchise in NHL history to go back-to-back when they achieved the feat in 2021, but they'd be in much rarer company if they pulled off the three-peat. Here's a look at the full list of every NHL team to win three straight Stanley Cups.

NHL Teams to Win Three Stanley Cups in a Row

1. Montreal Canadiens (Twice)

1956-1960 (five straight)
1976-1979 (four straight)

2. Toronto Maple Leafs (Twice)

1947-1949 (three straight)
1962-1964 (three straight)

3. New York Islanders (Once)

1980-1983 (four straight)

Say what you want about the shortened seasons or recent playoff formats, but there's no denying that the Lightning pulling off three straight Cup wins would be an incredible accomplishment. Especially since the last time any team did it was nearly a decade before the Lightning franchise had even been founded.
