Bruins on some kind of roll.

Boston currently sits near the halfway mark of the 2011/12 season with 138 goals for and 69 against. That 2 to 1 ratio is extremely rare for a team throughout NHL history. The only occaisons it has been done over an entire season was 1976/77 Montreal Canadiens when they scored 387 and gave up 171 goals and in 1943/44 the Habs had a goal ratio of 234 to 109. Teams rarely even score even 100 goals more than they surrender over a season. The last time even that happened was 2005/06 when Ottawa scored 314 while giving up 211.

Since Boston started this season by going 3-7-0 in October, the Bruins have played near perfect hockey. They've gone 23-3-1 since November 1st, a Points Pct. of .852. A few other amazing numbers about Boston's amazing run:

  • In the 27 games they have scored 117 and given up only 44, averages per game of 4.33 and 1.63

  • They have a ridiculous five different players at a point per game pace over the last 27; Seguin, Bergeron, Marchand, Krejci and Peverley.

  • Tyler Seguin is +29 over the last 27 games.

  • Six different Bruins are over +20 in that stretch; Seguin, Marchand, Bergeron, Chara, Seidenberg and Corvo.

  • Tim Thomas is 14-2-0 with 4 shutouts, 1.80 GAA and .945 SavePct

  • Tuukka Rask is 9-1-1 with 3 shutouts, 1.14 GAA and .961 SavePct.

  • once again, Tuukka Rask has a 1.14 GAA over that stretch

  • They have scored at least 6 goals in a game 10 times in the last 27.

  • They gave up 4 goals in a game once in 27

  • They have 7 shutouts in the last 27 games, New York Islanders have 7 shutout in their last 221 games.
