PHOENIX — It’s almost hard to remember when the road streak started. The Bruins were going through a difficult stretch, trying to find their way without Dennis Seidenberg. They had started a West Coast trip with losses to Anaheim and Los Angeles, and then narrowly beat San Jose, 1-0.

They needed those two points. Until that win over the Sharks, the Bruins were 10-10-0 away from the Garden, a middling record that wasn’t going to get them where they wanted to go.

They haven’t stopped getting points on the road since.

Boston swept its most recent trip with wins in New Jersey, Denver, and Phoenix, running its road streak to 14 games with at least a point (11-0-3).

The Bruins have won 12 straight overall.
