BOSTON – The Boston Bruins are simply not a burden at the moment, and their recent run has resulted in some pretty interesting statistics and streaks.
With their 3-2 win against the Ottawa Senators on Saturday, the Bruins have now won at least one point in 19 straight games. B have not lost in regulation since their loss to the New York Rangers on Jan. 19, and they scored 15-0-4 on their current run.
Here are some fascinating figures that the Bruins media relations have discovered after the victory against the Senses:
– The series of points of the team is the second longest in its history. The franchise record is 23, which the Bruins of 1940-1941 established when they surrendered 15-0-8-0 from December 22, 1940 to February 23, 1941.
– Boston has been particularly successful on the TD Garden ice cream. He has won 10 consecutive home wins, which is the longest race in Boston since a series of 14 consecutive wins from October 25, 2008 to January 1, 2009.
The 2014-2015 Bruins have concocted a series of 15 points at the head of the franchise, while the current group B is at 12 (10-0-2).
Saturday's win marked the end of a six-game family that the Bruins swept away. This is the second time in the team's history that they have done this, last season's group being the other team to complete the six-game home sweep.
The Florida Panthers, who have made two sets of passes in six games in their history, are the Florida Panthers, who did so in the 2015-16 and 2017-18 seasons. Only six teams have managed the feat, even once (Bruins, Panthers, Philadelphia Flyers, Edmonton Oilers, Detroit Red Wings and Los Angeles Kings).
The numbers aside, who knows how much the Bruins have even more pressure in this race, especially when they go to Pittsburgh to play the first leg of their back against a desperate Penguins team.
Anyway, it was a hell of a race to follow.
