The Boston Bruins have made history this NHL season, securing the President’s Trophy with an astounding seven games left in the regular season. With a record-breaking pace, the Bruins have not only emerged as the fastest team to reach 50 wins in a season but have also showcased their dominance on the ice, outperforming every other team in the league.
In just 75 games this season, the Bruins have managed to secure 58 wins, with only 12 losses in regulation and 5 in overtime. The team currently boasts an impressive 121 points, a staggering 18 points more than any other team in the NHL. Boston’s goal differential of +118 is another testament to their supremacy, as it stands 66 points higher than the next closest team.
Offensively, the Bruins have been a powerhouse, scoring the second most goals in the league, only trailing behind the Edmonton Oilers. The team’s success can be largely attributed to the outstanding performance of David Pastrnak, who has scored 53 goals and contributed 46 assists, amassing a total of 99 points in 75 games played.
But it’s not just about offense for the Bruins. Patrice Bergeron, a five-time Selke winner and one of the league’s best leaders, has played a pivotal role in the team’s success, getting it done on both ends of the ice.
The Bruins’ goaltending duo of Linus Ullmark and Jeremy Swayman has also been instrumental in the team’s exceptional performance. Ullmark, in 45 starts, has registered just 7 losses while maintaining a 1.88 GAA and a save percentage of .938. Swayman, on the other hand, has experienced 10 losses in his 29 starts, with a GAA of 2.21 and a save percentage of .921.
The impressive record and dominant performance of the Bruins have made them the clear favorites to win the Stanley Cup. As per DraftKings, the team currently has odds of +380, with the Colorado Avalanche being their closest competition at +650.
With their eyes set on the ultimate prize, the Boston Bruins are poised to continue their historic run in the playoffs. Their unmatched skill, teamwork, and determination have put them in an excellent position to bring the Stanley Cup back to Boston.
