The Bruins turned their game around after a disappointing October and earned a 12-0-1 record in the month of November, taking the team from last to second in Eastern Conference standings.

"Not only did they take over the Northeast Division lead with a 6-3 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs, their closest competitor in the division, but they just finished off a perfect month of November," said CSNNE.com's Bruins Insider Joe Haggerty.

It was the B's first month without a regulation loss since January 1969, when the team went 10-0-4.

"The 25 points they racked up in November tie the most they've ever had in any month in the history of the organization," said Haggerty.

Goaltender Tim Thomas was undefeated in November, earning a career-long win streak of nine games and posting a GAA of 1.76.

Despite Boston's achievements throughout the past month, Haggerty acknowledged that there's no guarantees for the rest of the season.

"Every time you turn around a corner, the Bruins are doing something great. The problem? November's over now."
