The victory makes the B's the fastest team in NHL history to win 50 games. It took them only 64 games to accomplish the feat as they improve to 50-9-5 on the campaign. The previous record (66 games) was held by the 2018-19 Tampa Bay Lightning and 1995-96 Red Wings.
The Bruins will clinch a spot in the 2023 Stanley Cup Playoffs if the New York Islanders lose to the Capitals, or if the Ottawa Senators lose to the Vancouver Canucks in regulation on Saturday night.
