Boston Bruins history for November 24:

1931: In a meeting with the Montreal Canadiens to finish off a home-and-home series, the Bruins take a 7-1 win.

1934: The Bruins play an old St. Louis team–not today’s Blues–and win 4-1.

1935: By losing 1-0 to the Rangers, the Bruins keep up a strange pattern so far in the young 1935-36 season. Each game has been a shutout decided by just one goal.

1936: The Black Hawks come to town to finish up a home-and-home, but they tie the Bruins 1-1.

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

1942: This game with Chicago ends in a 5-5 tie after regulation because overtime is actually banned during this time because of World War II.

1946: The Bruins lose 4-2 to Montreal.

1948: In Detroit, the Bruins take a 5-3 victory.

1954: The Bruins lose 3-1 in New York City.

1955: By losing 5-0 to the Rangers, a home-and-home series with New York ends with two consecutive Boston shutout losses.

1956: In Toronto, the Bruins win 3-2.

1957: This game with Chicago also ends in a tie, this one two each, though it is of course unaffected by any wartime overtime bans.

1960: The Bruins lose 5-3 in the second part of a home-and-home with New York.

1962: The Bruins tie 5-5 with Montreal. Aside from a 5-0 win to open the season back on Oct. 11, Boston has yet to decisively win a game since.

1965: In New York for the first part of a home-and-home, the Bruins lose 4-1 to the Rangers.

1966: The Bruins put up their biggest win to date of the season, beating the Red Wings 8-3.

1968: Boston beats Toronto 7-4.

1970: The Bruins and the Blues tie at five apiece.

1971: In Philadelphia, the Bruins hold on to a winning streak by beating the Flyers 2-1. This makes it a six-game winning streak.

1972: Just like this time the year before, Boston holds on to another win streak when they beat the old Atlanta Flames 4-0. That makes it five wins in a row.

1974: Another late-November win streak stays alive when the Bruins beat the Vancouver Canucks 7-4. Now they’re at five consecutive wins.

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.

1979: This time, a November winning streak is snapped by the Habs (boo!) when the Bruins lose 3-1. A nine-game win streak ends.
