Who Was the Last Bruins Forward to Lead the NHL in Plus-Minus?While goals and assists lead to big bucks in today's NHL, one stat that is often overlooked or over-analyzed is plus-minus.

Many may argue that a good plus-minus is nothing more than a product of playing on a good team, but that's not always the case.

Currently, Bruins forward Tyler Seguin leads the NHL in plus-minus with a plus-35. The B's certainly are a good team, but they're not the best. The best team at the moment is the Blues, but only one St. Louis skater, Kevin Shattenkirk, is currently cracking the top 10 in plus-minus.

Say what you want about the importance of plus-minus, but it clearly doesn't hurt having a high one. If Seguin ends up being the league leader in this quirky stat, he won't be the first forward to have accomplished it in Bruins sweater.

Can you name the last B's forward to lead the NHL in plus-minus?

For a select amount of Bruins games this season, NESN and The Four's will be teaming up to offer B's fans the chance at winning a $50 gift card to The Four's Restaurant and Sports Bar by simply answering a trivia question found at NESN.com/thefours. Questions will be posted at noon every afternoon on the day of a Bruins home game, unless otherwise noted.
