BOSTON (AP) The Boston Bruins set the NHL record for most home victories to start a season with their 12th straight, topping the Carolina Hurricanes 3-2 in overtime on Friday with a power-play goal from David Pastrnak.

The Bruins broke the mark of 11 that was set by the 1963-64 Chicago Blackhawks and equaled by the Florida Panthers last season.

"That felt awesome," Bruins first-year coach Jim Montgomery said. "We talked about it after the second (period) going into the third. There's been a lot of great teams in this league and you're able to set a precedent, break a record. It's pretty special and it doesn't happen if those guys don't believe in themselves like they do."
