Haggerty: 'Bruins finish off perfect November'

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."

Rob Gronkowski appears to thoroughly enjoy himself at Daytona 500

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski attended the Dayton 500 in true Gronkowski form.

He appeared to be there promoting Monster Energy drink, and was therefore hanging with the Monster Girls, who were also promoting the drink. Gronkowski's herniated disc injury, which required surgery in December 2016, does not seem to be slowing him down as he gets warmed up for the Summer of Gronk.

During the race coverage on FOX Sports, Gronk delivered a speed limit joke, which is sure to make the 13-year-old in you chuckle. (You can watch it here.)

WATCH: Bruins' Backes battles with Benn right after opening faceoff

Now THIS is old-time hockey!

There's bad blood between the Bruins' David Backes and the Stars' Jamie Benn that goes back a long way, most recently in last spring's Dallas-St. Louis playoff series when Backes was still with the Blues. They met again today -- and the ungodly (hockey) hour of 11:30 a.m. Dallas time -- for a nationally televised game between Backes' new team, the Bruins, and the Stars.

And it didn't take long for the two to renew acquaintances . . .
