Bruins beat Devils, tie NHL record for most wins in a single season with 62 originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The Boston Bruins are one step closer to breaking another major NHL record.

The B's defeated the New Jersey Devils 2-1 on Saturday night at TD Garden for their 62nd win of the 2022-23 campaign, which ties the league record for the most victories in a single regular season. The 1995-96 Detroit Red Wings and 2018-19 Tampa Bay Lightning also won 62 games.

The Bruins (62-12-5) can break this record as soon as Sunday night when they play the Flyers in Philadelphia. They have three more games remaining on their regular season schedule, and all of those matchups are against non-playoff teams.

  • Sunday, April 9 at Flyers

  • Tuesday, April 11 vs. Capitals

  • Thursday, April 13 at Canadiens

Presidents' Trophy curse? How Bruins compare to recent winners

The Bruins need four more points to break the 1976-77 Montreal Canadiens' league record for the most points in a season. Boston has already set team records for the most wins, the most road wins and the most points in a season.

Last month, the Bruins clinched the Presidents' Trophy and home ice advantage throughout the 2023 Stanley Cup Playoffs. They will play the second wild card team in the first round of the postseason.

Given the Bruins' remarkable success this season, anything less than a Stanley Cup title in June would be a massive disappointment.
