Saturday March 22nd, 2014

With a 2-0 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Friday, the Boston Bruins earned their eleventh straight win, broke 100 points and secured a position in the 2014 NHL playoffs.

Not a bad night in the Mile-High City.

The Bruins have been unstoppable in the month of March. The last time they lost was a 4-2 decision to the Washington Capitals on March 1. Since then, Boston has outscored opponents 43-15 and killed 26 of 27 penalties. In nine of the 11 games on the streak, the Bruins have allowed two or fewer goals and haven't trailed since the 9:57 mark in the second period of a 5-2 win over the Panthers on March 9.
