Today in Boston Bruins History: April 14
1985: Ken Linseman ties the club record for most points in one playoff period when he scores two goals and gets two assists during the second period of a game against the Montreal Canadiens. Linesman actually has a hat trick during this game. Ray Bourque ties another record for most assists when he gets three assists during that same second period. This game is also a three-plus goal comeback for the Bruins–Montreal was leading 4-1, but the Bruins won 7-6.
1993: Joe Juneau gets 102 points for the season and ties the league’s rookie assist record, as well as setting a record for assists by a left wing with 70. He’s the second Bruin to reach the 100-point mark that season, which is the first time since 1983-84 that two Bruins had done so. Adam Oates also sets a club record when he gets an assist in his 18th consecutive game and has the second-longest point streak ever at 21 games. This all happens as part of a 4-2 win over the Ottawa Senators, which is also a record–it ties the record at eighth consecutive victory on the road.
A year ago today: The Bruins begin their playoff series against the Canadiens at home with a 2-0 loss.
