Could this win streak affect how they place in the finals? The Boston Bruins worst losing streak was in the 1924, 1925 season. This was their first year playing in the NHL so it makes sense that they would not win so many games. In the 2006, 2007 season the Boston Celtics had a 18 game losing streak after losing to the Orlando magic back in January 2007. 

The Bruins have set a record of a home win streak of 14 games. They have outscored their opponents by a combined 9 goals and their record on the road is 6 wins and 3 loses. The Bruins outlasted the Anaheim Ducks 2-1 in a shootout. Also beat the Minnesota Wild 4-3 in overtime. Most recently beat the Hurricanes. They have the best record in the NHL overall because of how good they are when they play at TD Garden. For Boston, beating the record for most home games wins in a season won’t be easy as they need to win more than 36 games.
