The Boston Bruins are knocking on the door of the NHL win record in a season, but Marchand doesn’t care
With the Boston Bruins having one of the best seasons of all time in the NHL, superstar forward Brad Marchand says “nobody cares” about the record in the B’s locker room, according to ESPN.
During this season, the Bruins and Marchand are doing something special. They’re amongst the NHL’s best teams of all time as of right now. They stand alone at the top of the standings with 91 points in just 56 games this year. The B’s are 43-8-5 on the season. It is not likely that anyone will catch their record pace. Boston has a +92-goal differential on the season, scoring 210 goals and giving up only 118.
Currently, the Bruins are on pace to break the regular season win record of 62. The 1995-96 Detroit Red Wings were the team to hold that record, but now another team has tied it. The Tampa Bay Lightning tied the record in their 2018-19 season before being swept by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round.
But the record isn’t holding much meaning to the boys in Boston as forward Brad Marchand made comments about it.
“People have talked a lot about some of these records, that we could potentially hit or we have hit. Nobody cares about those in this room,” Marchand said, via ESPN. “We could care less about any of these regular-season records. Because they really don’t mean anything.”
“If you win the Presidents’ Trophy but you don’t win the Cup, nobody cares. That’s what we know on this team,” Marchand said, via ESPN.
So far, it seems like the Bruins have no weaknesses attached to them. They can play home or away, have great goaltending in Linus Ullmark and Jeremy Swayman, and have two great sides of the puck.
