Although the NHL witnessed a dominance of offense this season, the Boston Bruins excelled at consistently preventing the puck from entering their net, with Linus Ullmark as the key contributor.

At 29, Ullmark led all goaltenders in the season across three crucial categories: wins (40), GAA (1.89), and SV% (.938), also referred to as the NHL's Triple Crown.
The Bruins' goaltender became the sixth all-time and fifth in the expansion era (1967-68) to achieve this. Ullmark joined the ranks of:
2014-15: Carey Price (MTL)
1990-91: Ed Belfour (CHI)
1973-74: Bernie Parent (PHI)
1972-73: Ken Dryden (MTL).
The sole goaltender to secure the Triple Crown before the expansion era was a legendary Canadiens goalie, who remarkably achieved this feat multiple times. According to NHL Public Relations:
Jacques Plante also achieved the feat three times in the pre-expansion era (1961-62, 1958-59 and 1955-56, all w/ MTL).

Alexandar Georgiev of the Colorado Avalanche could tie Ullmark for the league lead in wins as his team concludes their regular season on Friday night. However, Georgiev was in net on Thursday when they faced the Winnipeg Jets.
