Give it up to the Boston Bruins, they are the class of the NHL regular season.
The Bruins clinched the Presidents’ Trophy for the league’s best record in the regular season after they took out the Buffalo Sabres 4-1 on Saturday afternoon.
It’s the first time the Bruins have won the Presidents’ Trophy since the 1989-1990 season. That year, the Bruins lost to Mark Messier and the Edmonton Oilers in the Stanley Cup Final.
It wasn’t all good news for Boston, however, as Bergeron departed the game after the second period with what Claude Julien called a “very minor” injury and Daniel Paille was knocked out of the game after a big hit by Sabres defenseman Jake McCabe.
