BEASTS OF THE EAST
The Boston Bruins are tied for the most points in the Eastern Conference after beating the Florida Panthers 4-2 last night. It was the 7th consecutive home win for the Bruins who have yet to lose a game in regulation in November.
Marc Savard and Patrice Bergeron provided most of the firepower, each finishing the night with a goal and assist. Savard is now tied for the 2nd most points in the NHL with 27.
For the second time this month, the Bruins have a game against the Canadiens immediately after another game. The last time this happened, Boston beat the Habs 6-1. But that was in the Garden. The B's face Montreal in Quebec Saturday night.
When was the last time both the Celtics and Bruins had the best record in their conferences?
