The Boston Bruins: Solidifying Their Place Among the NHL’s Elite with a Historic Record

The Boston Bruins won their 64th game of the season against the Washington Capitals on Tuesday night, totaling 133 points and breaking the NHL record for most points by a team.

All season, the Bruins have played at a machine-like pace. Despite having key players injured early this year, the team never faltered and actually gained momentum after an unexpectedly rough start. At this point in the season, no one expects anything less than total dominance from the Bruins.

The player-initiated coaching change was one of the most intriguing caveats to the Bruins’ surprising dominance with an older core. Thought to be a coaching guru from the outside, Bruins players approached management this offseason to replace Bruce Cassidy with Jim Montgomery, who led the team to a historic pace and is likely to win the Jack Adams award.

On the ice, they are led by their core veteran group of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, and David Pastrnak, but they are also enhanced by typically skilled, experienced, and tough Bruins players like David Kreijci and Charlie McAvoy. Their deadline additions of Tyler Bertuzzi, Garnet Hathaway, and Dmitry Orlov have pushed them over the edge, and anything less than a Stanley Cup will be disappointing for Bruins fans.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
