The Boston Bruins are postseason bound!

Boston, with a win over the Detroit Red Wings and a New York Islanders loss to the Washington Capitals, became the first team in the NHL to clinch a spot in the 2023 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

It was a foregone conclusion that the B’s would make it to the postseason, of course, but it became official Saturday. The Bruins are on pace to set the NHL record for wins (64) and points (134) this season.

Only two teams have clinched a playoff spot quicker than the 2022-23 Bruins, who did so in 64 games. The 1995-96 Red Wings clinched in 59 games and while the 1998-99 Dallas Stars did so in 63 games, according to NHL public relations.
