The Boston Bruins had such a great season that it reached its peak on Sunday night. They won against the Philadelphia Flyers with a score of 5-3 and they had a total of 63 wins which is an NHL record! This also made them winners of the Presidents Trophy.
The Boston Bruins have just won their 63rd game in the NHL season, breaking a previous record of 62 games set by Detroit’s Red Wings and matched by Tampa Bay’s Lightning. If they get two more wins, they will have beaten the 132-point record currently held by Montreal’s Canadiens.
David Pastrnak made history by scoring three goals against the Philadelphia Flyers in one game. This is his 60th goal of the season, and 300th career goal, making him only the second player in the Boston Bruins team’s history to reach such a milestone. The incredible achievement was even more impressive as he achieved it under difficult circumstances; some of his teammates were sitting out during that match.
This year was really special for the Boston Bruins and their fans. Even though the team had two of its best players miss parts of the season, they broke records by reaching 100 points and 50 wins faster than any other NHL team ever has! Plus, the Bruins won their fourth Presidents’ Trophy, which was only second-most to the New York Rangers, ending with this achievement two weeks before regular season ended.
The Bruins are finishing their regular season with two games. The first is at home against the Washington Capitals on Tuesday, and then they have a match against the Canadiens away on Thursday. After that, they will be facing the Stanley Cup Playoffs, where if the Bruins win, it would be their seventh Stanley Cup Title! With that victory, they would become only the fourth team to ever have so many titles in NHL history.
