GO FIGURE

.938 REGULAR-SEASON save percentage for Tim Thomas, tops in the league and the best for any netminder since the NHL began keeping the statistic in 1982--83. It was the third straight season that a Bruin has led (Thomas in 2008--09, Tuukka Rask in '09--10).

8 CONSECUTIVE WINS from the start of the season by Thomas, breaking the team record of six set by Tiny Thompson in 1937--38.

3 STRAIGHT ALL-STAR GAMES—including this season's—that Thomas was the winning goaltender, a first in the game's 58-year history.

8 BRUINS who have had 30 goals, 30 assists and 100 penalty minutes in a season, including Milan Lucic, who in 2010--11 joined Wayne Cashman, Keith Crowder, Ken Hodge, John McKenzie, Cam Neely, Bobby Orr and Joe Thornton.

.917 BOSTON'S winning percentage when Lucic scored, the team taking 22 of the 24 games in which he had a goal.

5 SHORTHANDED GOALS by Brad Marchand, tied for third in the NHL and the most by a Bruin since Brian Rolston had five in 2001--02.
