Bruins record tracker: Boston on pace to break NHL records for most points, wins by a team in a season

The Bruins are what the kids now call an absolute wagon.

No team has dominated the 2022-23 season like Boston. David Pastrnak should be considered for the Hart Trophy this year as he is also chasing Connor McDavid in the goalscoring race for Rocket Richard.

Linus Ullmark has a stranglehold on the Vezina Trophy and leads the league in goals against average, saves and wins. And Jim Montgomery is the front-runner for the Jack Adams Award for Coach of the Year and has made the Bruins a powerhouse in just his first year at the club.

The Bruins are on track to set new NHL records for most wins and most points by a team in a single season. They are already the fastest team with 100 points in league history and also the fastest team ever with 50 wins in one year.

Of course, if you ask any of the members of the organization, they don’t give a damn about anything that isn’t called the Stanley Cup.

“People have been talking a lot about some of these records that we could potentially achieve or that we have achieved,” Brad Marchand said in a recent interview with ESPN. “No one cares about those in this room. We could care less about those regular-season records. Because they really mean nothing.”

Which team holds the record for most points in an NHL season?

Speaking of the 1976-77 Montreal team, this is the club that holds the record for most points by a team in a single season at 132.

The Canadians went 60-8-12 this season. Back then, games ended in a tie if nobody scored in overtime, so Montreal had given them an extra 12 points by the 12 ties, one point per tie.

Only one other team has scored 130 points in a season: the 1995-96 Red Wings. This loaded squad was a point short of tying the Canadians’ record and finished the campaign with 131.

The Bruins’ franchise record is 121 points, set by the team in 1970-71.
