Boston recorded their history making 63rd win last night, although they were missing several key players, including Ullmark, who was absent for the historic "Win Hug" with Swayman.

A Special Moment

Despite the absence of multiple crucial players (mentioned earlier), the Bruins managed to secure a 5-3 victory against the Philadelphia Flyers. This win allowed them to surpass the NHL's single-season win record of 62.
The primary "worry" among Bruins fans revolved around the customary win hug between Linus Ullmark and Jeremy Swayman if one of them couldn't make it. Sunday provided the answer as Providence's Brandon Bussi stepped in, making the "Win Hug" a truly distinctive one.
Swayman's thoughts on the hug without Ullmark:
''I was a little bummed that [Ullmark] wasn't gonna make the trip, but it was awesome. [Providence call-up Brandon Bussi] came in, he was iffy, and I said, ‘Come over here'.''

Ullmark is expected to return on Tuesday when the Washington Capitals visit TD Garden, as the Vezina frontrunner was merely resting on Sunday. The 29-year-old boasts an impressive 39-6-1 record while leading all goalies in GAA (1.89) and SV% (.938).
Ullmark's 39 wins put him just behind Pete Peeters' franchise record of wins in a season by a Bruins goalie, who achieved 40 in the 1982-83 season. However, with only two games left, it is likely that Ullmark will only start one more game.
