For the Boston Bruins, it's 14 and counting.
Fourteen consecutive games the Bruins have gained a point, a run helping vault them near the top of the Eastern Conference standings.
The Bruins attempt to gain at least one point for the 15th straight game Thursday night when they visit the New York Islanders at Barclays Center.
Starting with a 3-2 overtime loss to the New York Rangers on Dec. 16, the Bruins are 10-0-4 in their last 14 games. Boston has scored at least three goals in 11 of those games, including Wednesday's 4-1 home victory over the Montreal Canadiens.
"We feel so good about our game that we know over the course of 60 minutes that we'll get our chances if we're working hard and stick to you our layers and stick to our defensive posture that will turn into offense for us, so you know it's just confidence in our system and the way that," Boston defenseman Torey Krug said.
It is their longest run since going 15-0-1 from March 2-30, 2014. It also is the longest stretch in the league this season and placed the Bruins within seven points of Tampa Bay for first place in the Eastern Conference. << Read more
