The Boston Bruins take the ice Saturday (7 p.m., CBC, NHLN-US, NESN) for a rematch with the Toronto Maple Leafs, who Boston dispatched on Wednesday while notching their 12th win in 13 games.
Milan Lucic scored two goals, David Krejci added one goal and two assists and Tim Thomas saved 34 shots as the Bruins defeated Toronto 6-3 on Wednesday.
The win allowed the Bruins to finish November without a regulation defeat, the first time the Bruins have completed such a month since January of 1969. The Bruins were 12-0-1 during the month, with the only blemish being a 3-2 shootout loss to Detroit on Nov. 25, and have not lost in regulation since Oct. 29. During the streak, the Bruins have gone from last in their division to first.
"It's quite an accomplishment," goalie Tim Thomas said. "It might be one of those things that only happens ... well, for a lot of guys it won't even happen once in their career, right? For anybody who has played for the Bruins their whole career, obviously no one's done that since 1969.
"Unfortunately, the way the world works and the way this league works, November's gone. It's behind us. This is December."
