Yesterday, Sports List of the Day ran down baseball teams with the most wins.  A previous post also checked out NFL teams with the most wins.

Today, let’s look at the NHL‘s all-time regular season win leaders.

The winningest team in hockey history is also the team with the most Stanley Cups – the Habs, or Montreal Canadiens.  Why are they called the Habs?
