Avalanche give Bruins their first loss of young season
Last night, the Boston Bruins continued their road trip by visiting the Colorado Avalanche. The Bruins had a goal lead at the end of the first period but the Avalanche would tie it up in the second period, take the lead in the third period and win the game 4-2 over the Bruins. Big kudos to Avalanche goalie Philipp Grubauer for making some big saves on Bruins chances.
