In 1973-74, the Bruins shared Boston Garden with not only the Celtics but with their AHL affiliate, the Boston Braves, and with another team that is now in the NHL. That was the New England Whalers of the World Hockey Association, who moved to Hartford, joined the NHL in the merger, and later became the Carolina Hurricanes, who the Bruins just beat to advance to the Finals. Occasionally, Boston sports teams will play "Brass Bonanza", the instrumental fight song used by "The Whale", as a way to build their fan base in Hartford, where a coterie of diehard Whalers fans remains.

ETA: If the Celtics had gotten rid of Kyrie Irving when they should have, they'd have a chance at giving Boston a championship sweep this year. I'd still have bet on the Warriors, though.
