1940: In Detroit to finish up a three-game road trip, the Bruins tie with the Red Wings at one.

1976: Yep, another late-November winning streak! The Bruins beat the Penguins 4-0, now having five consecutive wins under their belt. The last three wins have all been decided by the Bruins getting four goals, too.
1977: Guess what? Another late-November win streak, more to be thankful for, stays alive when Boston shuts out Washington 6-0. Now that’s four wins in a row and the last three have been shutouts.
