Bruins Daily: Bruins Dominate Avalanche; Petulant Binnington
The Boston Bruins keep rolling through their opponents on TD Garden ice. This time it was the defending Stanley Cup champions.
That, more Bruins news and the latest from around the NHL in the latest Boston Hockey Now Bruins Daily:
There’s no doubt they didn’t beat the usual Colorado Avalanche juggernaut that hoisted Lord Stanley last season, but the Boston Bruins were still their usual dominant selves Saturday night. The Bruins basically embarrassed the defending Stanley Cup champions in a 5-1 win that extended their TD Garden win streak to 14-0-0.
Can Avalanche defenseman Cale Makar ever surpass Boston Bruins God Bobby Orr as the best defenseman ever? Boston Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery thinks so. I asked Montgomery about that comparison and I’m thinking now, after he held Makar pointless, he was trying to jinx Makar?

MTL: let me start by saying, that I generally and sincerely love the game that Joel Edmundson plays. That being said, what the bleep is he thinking here? That deserves a suspension and was just flat out dirty.
