Boston Bruins history for October 30:

1943: The 1943-44 season begins for the Bruins with a 2-2 tie at Montreal.

1946: The Bruins visit New York and tie 3-3 with the Rangers.

1948: Once again visiting Montreal, the Bruins tie it yet again with the Habs, 3-3.

1949: On the road in Chicago, the Bruins lose 10-4. Ouch.

1952: Visiting Detroit during a road trip, the Bruins lose 4-1.

1954: On a different visit to Detroit in the first half of a home and home, the Bruins are shut out 4-0.

1956: Though the Bruins are on the road against a different team–Chicago–the result is the same as two years previously when Boston is shut out 4-0.

1958: The Bruins put up a 5-2 win over Chicago.

1960: The Bruins beat Montreal 5-3.

1963: Visiting New York goes badly for the Bruins this time when they lose 4-3.

1965: This time, the Rangers visit Boston, but it still goes badly for the Bruins because they lose 8-2. All three of their October 1965 games are losses.

1966: Another jaunt to Detroit does not go well for Boston when they lose 8-1.

1968: In Minnesota, the Bruins win 4-2 over the North Stars, marking their second consecutive win by a 4-2 margin.

1974: Once again in Minnesota, this time the result is not so exciting as the two teams tie 3-3.

1975: Facing off against St. Louis brings a 3-2 Boston win.

1976: A 4-3 win at Montreal is the Bruins’ second 4-3 win in a row and their fourth consecutive win since they started a road trip to six cities.

1979: A visit to Los Angeles results in a 4-4 tie.

1980: The newly relocated and newly renamed Calgary Flames visit the Bruins for the first time and Boston loses 3-1.

1982: On another visit to Montreal, the Bruins and Habs end up with a 4-4 tie.

1986: Another game with the Habs produces yet another tie, this one 3-3.

1988: In the second half of a home-and-home with Buffalo, a strange thing happens when the two teams tie 3-3. That’s also the score of the first half of the home-and-home.

1993: The Blues beat the Bruins 2-1.

1997: The Bruins are shut out 3-0 by the Anaheim Ducks.

1999: A 3-0 shutout win over Buffalo is the fourth win in a row for the Bruins and their third in those four games where they’ve only needed three goals for the win.

2000: To start off a visit to the New York metro area, the Bruins lose 5-1 on the road at the Rangers.

2001: The Bruins lose 4-3 in overtime to the New Jersey Devils in the first half of a home-and-home.

2002: On a visit to the nation’s capital, the Bruins win 7-2 over the Capitals.

2003: To cap off a home-and-home with Montreal, the Bruins are shut out 1-0 in overtime.

2008: The Bruins are on the road in Calgary after visiting the other two Western Canada teams, but this time they lose 3-2 after putting up two consecutive 1-0 shutout wins. Patrice Bergeron and Blake Wheeler score, but it’s not enough. Interestingly, on the other side of the ice is Michael Cammalleri in his first tour of duty with the Flames, but not his last.

2010: David Krejci, Tyler Seguin, Milan Lucic and Jordan Caron each have goals as the Bruins shut out the Ottawa Senators 4-0. This is the second shutout victory in a row for the Bruins.
