Playoffs

This would be the last playoff appearance for the Bruins for the next seven seasons; the team would next make the playoffs in 1968. The Bruins lost a very close seven game semi-final series to Toronto.

After the playoffs were concluded, the Bruins and the New York Rangers embarked on a 23-game European exhibition tour which saw them play in ten European cities. Andy Bathgate of the Rangers could not make the tour so his place was taken by Bobby Hull of the Chicago Blackhawks. Hull scored 50 goals in the 23 exhibition games and blossomed into a star in the next NHL season.
