On This Day November 13th.

November 13: On this day in 1930, the Leafs opened their 1930-31 season with a 0-0 tie against the New York Americans. One week later the two teams met again and for the second consecutive time, the game ended in a 0-0 tie. Toronto would go forward to set an NHL record that still stands of shutting out their opposition for the first five consecutive games from the start of the season.
