Regular seasonEdit

The 1970-71 Bruins set an NHL record by having 10 different skaters score 20 goals or more in a season.[2] The record was broken by the 1977-78 Bruins when they had 11 different skaters with 20 goals or more.

PlayoffsEdit

The postseason ended too soon for the Bruins as they lost in the opening round to the Montreal Canadiens and their rookie goaltender Ken Dryden in a seven-game upset.
