The Boston Bruins set a new team record for consecutive home wins on Sunday night after defeating the Vancouver Canucks 5-2 at the TD Garden. This is the Bruins’ ninth consecutive home victory, resulting in a 9-0 record.

Patrice Bergeron scored to bag his third goal in two days while Brad Marchand got his fifth goal in just eight games this season. Also getting their names on the scoresheet were Connor Clifton, Pavel Zacha, and Tomas Nosek, who scored in an empty net with just 1:58 left on the clock.

Boston’s previous record for consecutive home wins was set in the 1983-84 season when the Bruins won eight consecutive games at the old Boston Garden arena.

“I think everyone’s contributing and playing for the team. I think that’s the biggest thing right now,” Burgeon said of his team’s strong start to the season. Currently, the Bruins sit on a four-game winning streak and have an overall record of 14-2-0.

Currently top of the Eastern Conference Atlantic Division, the Boston Bruins have a packed schedule ahead. The team next faces the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night before hitting the road to play the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.
