BOSTON — The Tampa Bay Lightning tied the NHL record for most wins in a regular season.
The Lightning beat the Boston Bruins 6-3 on Saturday afternoon to tie the Detroit Red Wings’ single-season record of 62 wins.
It’s the greatest number of regular-season wins in the 102-year history of the NHL.
The Lightning and Red Wings are the only two teams in NHL history to win more than 60 games in a regular season.
Tampa Bay’s record this season of 62-16-4 is slightly worse than Detroit’s 62-13-7 campaign during the 1995-1996 regular season.
The Stanley Cup Playoffs start Wednesday.
