Season Snapshot: Facts/Figures
Bruins only team with 100 points; Draisaitl on pace to win scoring raceby John Kreiser @jkreiser7713 / NHL.com Managing Editor
With the NHL pausing the 2019-20 regular season on March 12 due to the concerns surrounding the coronavirus, NHL.com takes a look at the facts and figures from what's happened to this point:
0 -- Victories by the Boston Bruins and Columbus Blue Jackets in games that went to a shootout. The Bruins (0-7) and Blue Jackets (0-4) are the only teams that have not won a game in the tiebreaker this season, while the Carolina Hurricanes (5-0) and Pittsburgh Penguins (3-0) are the only teams yet to lose in a shootout.
1 -- Teams to reach 100 points before the season was paused. The Bruins (44-14-12) are six points ahead of the St. Louis Blues in the race for the Presidents' Trophy. It is the seventh time Boston has reached 100 points in 70 games or fewer since entering the NHL in 1924. However, it is just the second time they have done so since 1977-78 (2013-14).
