Although they got off to a slow start this season, the B's are riding an eight-game winning streak and have dominated in the month of November. Saturday's impressive 6-0 shutout of the New York Islanders just added to what has already been quite an impressive run.
The streak has fans thinking about a possible repeat when June rolls around. Since Boston won the Cup, most experts have said the Bruins will be contenders for years to come as they retained almost all of the players responsible for the win. The addition of defenseman Joe Corvo along with the maturity of second year forward Tyler Seguin could be just what the Bruins needed to stay on top of their game.
That combined with the netminder tandem of Tim Thomas and Tuukka Rask, who have both played very well so far this season, could bring about another long run in the playoffs.
The 2010-11 team will be remembered forever in Boston for all the excitement it brought to the city last summer, but is this year's team better?
