The 2021-22 Toronto Maple Leafs etched themselves in the record books Sunday night, establishing new franchise marks for points (106) and wins (50) in a regular season with a victory over the New York Islanders.

Toronto accomplished the feats with six games remaining in its regular-season schedule following the 4-2 win.

Maple Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe downplayed the records postgame.

"I don't know if it means a lot," he said, according to Sports Illustrated's Mike Stephens. "Especially with where we know this team needs to go."

The franchise has existed since 1917. However, the NHL added a point for overtime and shootout losses in 2005-06 - this season's Leafs have six of those in total - while increasing the likelihood of wins by eliminating the tie.

Toronto is 50-20-6 through 76 games this campaign. The Leafs clinched a playoff berth April 9. They currently occupy second place in the Atlantic Division and sit eight points behind the Florida Panthers, though the first-place squad holds a game in hand.

Despite regular-season success in recent years, the Leafs haven't advanced past the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs since 2003-04.
