Boston Bruins record tracker – Schedule and points breakdown

The Boston Bruins entered the 2022-23 NHL season with modest expectations. The staff amassed 107 points final season, earlier than bowing out within the first spherical of the 2022 Stanley Cup playoffs. During the summer season, the Bruins fired head coach Bruce Cassidy and changed him with Jim Montgomery. Caesars Sportsbook gave them 25-1 odds to win the Stanley Cup, and we ranked them 14th in our preseason Power Rankings.

Then the season started, and the Bruins have been authoring one of many biggest common seasons within the trendy, wage cap period (since 2005-06).

Through 46 video games, the Bruins have skated to a 37-5-4 record, good for 78 points and an .848 points share. Follow alongside right here because the B’s chase down NHL historical past, and watch them dwell in six unique video games on ABC, ESPN+ and Hulu, together with different video games obtainable to out-of-market viewers on NHL Power Play on ESPN+, which is included in an ESPN+ subscription.

Wins: 37

Through 46 video games, the Bruins are on tempo for 66 wins by season’s finish. The present record for many wins in a season (62) was set in 1995-96 by the Detroit Red Wings (who completed 62-13-7), and tied in 2018-19 by the Tampa Bay Lightning (62-16-4 ). Neither staff gained the Stanley Cup in its respective record-setting season, because the Red Wings misplaced to the Colorado Avalanche within the Western Conference finals, and the Lightning have been swept within the first spherical by the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Points: 78

Boston is on tempo for 139 points this season. This would shatter the present record for points in a season held by the 1976-77 Montreal Canadiens (60-8-12), who set that mark in an 80-sport season. The Canadiens gained the Cup that season — over the Bruins.

Goal differential: +81

Goal differential isn’t an simply projectable stat for quite a few causes. But if we took the Bruins’ present differential — which is one of the best within the league by 38 targets — and extrapolated that out to 82 video games, they’d end at plus-144. That’s a quantity that might blow by something within the wage cap period, however could be tied for seventh in league historical past. The 1976-77 Canadiens are atop the board, at plus-216.

Team save share: .932

Linus Ullmark and Jeremy Swayman are one of many NHL’s greatest goaltending duos, and together with a 30-of-31 sport by Keith Kinkaid, the group has generated the league’s greatest staff save share, forward of the Dallas Stars at .921. Although not an official league record, one of the best mark for a staff in a single season is .934, set by the 1968-69 St. Louis Blues.

Goals in opposition to per sport: 2.02

All of these saves have resulted in not many targets for Bruins opponents. Their mark of two.02 targets in opposition to per sport is properly forward of second place Dallas (2.54) and a batch of groups between 2.61 and 2.63. The publish-1967 enlargement record for the bottom targets-in opposition to common in a season is 1.89, held by the 2011-12 Blues.

David Pastrnak

The 26-yr-outdated winger is second within the NHL with 36 targets, and fourth with 65 points, on tempo for 64 and 116 respectively. Those totals do not strategy all-time NHL data, but when he hits that aim mark, it might be the fourth-most targets in a season by a Bruin, breaking Phil Esposito’s clear sweep of the highest 5 aim-scoring seasons in B’s historical past.

Linus Ullmark

By notching his twenty fifth win of the season in his twenty eighth sport, Ullmark broke the NHL record for the fewest variety of video games to achieve that victory benchmark. He leads the league in targets-in opposition to common (1.82) and save share (.938). The single-season NHL record for wins (48, by Braden Holtby in 2015-16) is in play. The trendy-period record for GAA is 1.56 (Brian Elliott, 2011-12) and for save share is .940 (additionally by Elliott in 2011-12).
