Bruins Historic Finish To Regular Season
With a 5-4 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday at the Bell Centre, the Bruins’ record-breaking regular season came to an end.
The Bruins will play Florida on Monday to start the playoffs after they failed to advance past the No. 2 Wild Card in their matchup with the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday.
Before the best-of-seven series begins, here is a list of the Boston Bruins’ accomplishments from the 2022–23 season.
Records/Achievements For 2022-2023 Bruins
Triple Crown For Ullmark: The likely Vezina winner led the NHL with 40 victories, a goals-against average of 1.89, and a save percentage of .938. In addition to Ullmark’s contributions, Swayman was 24-6-4 and ranked third in the NHL in goals against average (2.21) and save percentage (.922)
Jennings Trophy: The Jennings Trophy is awarded each year to the goalie pair for the team that allowed the fewest goals during the regular season. Giving the lockdown duo of Ullmark and Swaymann yet another thing to hug about.
Wins Record: With three games remaining, the Bruins tied the 1995–1996 Detroit Red Wings and the 2018–19 Tampa Bay Lightning for the most wins (62), and then they won three more games to cap it off with 65 victories.
Points Record: The Bruins concluded the season with 15 victories in their final 16 games, passing the 1976–1977 Montreal Canadiens, who had 132 points (in 80 games), to finish with 135 points.
60 Goals For Pasta: Pastrnak, who signed a massive extension during the season, rocketed above 60 with games to spare. On Thursday, he added No. 61.
