Again, with the stats?

I really never thought about the Pats having a long winning streak that exceeds the 5 or 6 game mark but lately the club keeps on rolling. Last night Phil Andrews texted me and asked when the last time the Pats won 10 in a row I didn't have an answer for him (I don't usually have my files with me at the game).

He messaged me this morning and since I wasn't working I had a chance to check through my Pats schedule files (Phil: thanks for the shout out on the broadcast last night).

The last time the Pats won 10 straight games happened happened back in the 1985-86 season. The streak started with a 6-4 win over the Brandon Wheat Kings on October 13, 1985 and was ended by the Moose Jaw Warriors November 11, 1985. In the 10 games the Pats outscored their opposition 55-33.

With hitting the 10 game winning streak the 2016-17 Pats have reached some lofty numbers. This is only the 9th time that the Pats have won 10 or more games in a single season.
