Stats, stats and more stats

It's been a while since I've posted as I have been working on a couple of other things (one project will hopefully be launched soon). Today I have decided to post some Pats stats and how the 2016-17 Pats team is closing in on one of the best starts in Pats history.

You may have heard or read that the 1984-85 Pats started the season winning 10 of their first 11 games having a 10-0-1 record after those 11 games.

This years' Pats now have a 9-0-3-0 record after 12 games picking up 21 of a possible 24 points.

Delving into my records I have discovered that the 12 games without a regulation loss to start a season is now 2nd most all-time.

To find the record one must trace all the way back to 1964-65 season.

The club started off to an incredible 14-0-4 record which is the club's record to start a season without a regulation loss. 18 games without a regulation loss is incredible. In those 18 games the Pats outscored their opponent 110-46 an incredible 6.11 to 2.56 average goals for/against.

You have to keep in mind that prior to the 1946-47 season junior hockey was secondary and at times a league barely happened. The Pats didn't lose a regular season game in 1926-27, 1928-29, 1930-31, 1931-32, 1932-33, 1933-34 where the club played 30 regular season games. The club did go 36 straight regular season games without a loss from Jan. 20, 1926 to Nov. 2, 1946 (if you want to know more about this era please feel free to post a comment or email me).

That's all I have for right now.

Have a good one,
