The 2000-01 NHL season was the 78th season of operation for the Boston Bruins. The team finished 9th in the conference that year, failing to qualify for the playoffs for the 2nd consecutive year. It was also the first full season the Bruins were without longtime team captain Raymond Bourque since the 1979-1980 season.

The Bruins tied the Carolina Hurricanes in points for the regular season at 88. However, Carolina had two more wins than the Bruins, leaving the Bruins in the 9th position in the conference, narrowly missing the playoffs. Boston was without starting goaltender Byron Dafoe for much of the season, and the Bruins had to use five goaltenders throughout the season. The good news is that the Bruins saw some of their young core mature further, as Joe Thornton set a then-career high in goals with 37, and Jason Allison once again broke the 30-goal plateau.
